Banana Nutella Panini

I found a very simple treat to whip together at a moment's notice - and it was yummy!  It would be a wonderful casual dessert or a delicious breakfast treat!  If you have Nutella on hand and bananas and white bread - you are set!  We had it for our family night treat last night.  We will be making it again soon.

adapted from Everyday Food Magazine

1/4 c Nutella
8 slices of bread - could be a nice dense white bread, brioche, or challah - which we used
3 firm-ripe bananas, thinly sliced
1/4 c butter

Spread 1 TBSP of Nutella on 4 slices of bread.  Layer with bananas and top with remaining bread.

Melt the butter and brush on top and bottom of sandwiches.  Cook in a frying pan, pressing down on top with a heavy skilllet to create the panini, flipping when bread is golden brown and spread is melted.  (I used our George Forman grill - it worked great!)  Serve warm.

I love something that can be categorized as breakfast and dessert. My kind of breakfast!
