Nutella French Toast Sandwiches (Recipe from Katie Lee, "The Comfort Table: Recipes for Everyday Occasions")

8 large eggs

2½ cups whole milk

¼ cup sugar

½ teaspoon kosher salt

Zest of one orange

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 loaf brioche bread, sliced ¾-inch thick

¾ cup Nutella

3 ripe bananas, sliced on a diagonal

1. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, sugar, salt, zest and vanilla. Set aside.

2. Grease a baking dish. Spread half the bread slices with Nutella and place in the baking dish. Top each slice with bananas and remaining bread. Pour egg mixture over the bread and allow it to soak in, at least 20 minutes (or overnight, covered, in the refrigerator).

3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake casserole for 50-55 minutes, until bread is golden brown and puffy. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
