  1. Whisk the eggs, milk, sugar, salt, orange zest and vanilla in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Spread half of the bread slices with the chocolate-hazelnut spread and top with the banana slices and remaining bread slices.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Place the sandwiches into the baking dish on top of the egg mixture. Let soak 2 minutes. Flip the sandwiches and soak an additional 2 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet.
  5. Remove the sandwiches from the egg mixture and let any excess custard drip off. Working in batches and adding more butter to the skillet as needed, transfer the sandwiches to the skillet and cook on each side until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
