I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day! As for hubby and I, we had quite a busy weekend traveling to and from Arizona for a wedding. It was a lot of fun! The wedding was beautiful, and of course the always dry and sunny weather in Arizona was a welcome change from all the rain we’ve had here over the last month. I was a tiny bit disappointed that we never had a chance to grill out though, as that’s our usual tradition over Memorial Day weekend…but we’ll have plenty of time to do that this week. In the meantime, I want to share this simple recipe for my new favorite lunch around here that I totally count as grilling since I used my George Foreman grill to make it. Give it a try this week – and, feel free to substitute in your favorite fruit and make it your own creation!
Makes 2 panini.
- 4 slices white or whole wheat bread
- 2 Tbsp Nutella, divided
- 3-4 strawberries, sliced
- 1 banana, sliced
- Cooking spray
Heat your grill or panini press to medium heat. For each sandwich, lightly spray the bottom piece of bread with cooking spray. Spread a tablespoon of the nutella on top of the bread. Add half of the sliced banana.
Add the sliced strawberries.
Top with a second piece of bread, and then lightly spray with cooking spray. Grill or press 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned.
