Strawberry, Banana, and Nutella Panini

Strawberry Banana Nutella Panini - 3

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.

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.

Top with a second piece of bread, and then lightly spray with cooking spray. Grill or press 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned.

  4. I used to make pressed sandwiches like this all the time when I was a kid! We would use chocolate or Nutella and pile it on so that it would ooze out when warm… so good!

  15. Wish my husband would eat bananas because this looks like such a fun way to kick off a brunch! Maybe I could sub out another fruit? 🙂 Either way, I’m with Erin – I own so many kitchen gadgets already and I want so many more!

  16. It sounds as though you had a wonderful time in Arizona – glad the wedding weekend went so well. Strawberries and Nutella go so well together and this panini would be a wonderful dessert treat.

  17. Oh my. Yes. I used to get these all the time back home in Miami. There was a crepemaker restaurant that used nutella in all their dessert crepes. I have to make my own now!
