This little tartine is simply buttered toast, orange marmalade, nutella, salt and hazelnuts. Dorie suggest using brioche or challah but I used slices from the incredibly good white loaf I had baked for Tuesdays with Dorie.
I loved the sweet and slightly tart taste of the jelly with the buttery goodness of the bread accented by the deliciousness of the nutella. Add the crunch of the pecans then the bite of the salt and voilá, a quick and easy and very grown up treat!
To top it off, I ran around town to the grocery stores I thought most likely to have Seville or Blood oranges for the marmalade and hazelnuts for the tartine with no luck. Last night I was in the small and often under stocked grocery closest to me only to find Blood Oranges for 99¢ a pound! I bought one and used it in a much needed drink!
