The Cooking Chronicles: Chocolate and Banana Panino

I remember watching an episode of Giada’s Weekend Getaways where she feasted on a mean-looking chocolate and banana panino, and since then, have wanted to try one ever since. I picked up a baguette and some bananas on my way home from work on Friday, and after supper, intended on recreating Giada’s dessert for myself.

I spread Nutella on both slices of bread, placed three banana slices in between for the filling, and drizzled olive oil on the top and the bottom to help with the browning. Pressed down for two minutes in the George Foreman Grill, they were done, served along with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I was hit with a deja vu moment of having possibly tried such a panino before, but I think it was just the classic combination of banana and chocolate that threw me off. While not fancy or particularly unique, these sandwiches would be an easy dessert for a weekday evening.
