This warm, decadent dessert sandwich combines Nutella and sliced banana between big, fluffy pieces of Challah. The butter caramelizes a bit to make this really beautiful crust that offsets all of the ooey gooey filling.


  • 4 thick cut slices of Challah bread
  • Nutella
  • 1 banana, halved and sliced lengthwise
  • Unsalted butter, softened (or use spreadable butter substitute)
  • Powdered sugar, for garnish (optional)
  • Special equipment: panini press


  1. Preheat your panini press. Slather one side of each slice of Challah with a layer of Nutella. Don’t be shy.
  2. Lay banana slices along 2 of the Nutella-covered slices of Challah, and flip the other slices, Nutella-side down, onto the bananas.
  3. Spread a thin layer of butter on the outsides of the 4 pieces of Challah and place sandwiches on the preheated panini press. Lower the top of the press and cook for 2-4 minutes, or until the bread is nicely caramelized and the filling is warm.
  4. Remove panini, slice in half, dust with powdered sugar and dive in!
