  • 1/4 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread, such as Nutella
  • 8 slices brioche, 1 inch thick (from a 10-ounce loaf)
  • 3 firm-ripe bananas, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter


  1. Spread 1 tablespoon chocolate-hazelnut spread on 4 bread slices. Layer with bananas and top with remaining bread.

  2. In a grill pan or large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium. Cook 2 sandwiches, pressing with a heavy skillet, until bread is golden and toasted and spread is melted, 3 to 5 minutes, flipping once. Repeat with remaining butter and sandwiches. Serve warm.
