Dessert Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese has long been one of my "comfort foods." It is a pretty good combination, bread and cheese. So I was thinking, why not add chocolate?

  • 3  Tablespoons  chocolate hazelnut spread, preferably Nutella
  • slices bread
  • banana, cut in half and sliced in half lengthwise
  • 2  Tablespoons  butter, at room temperature

Directions

Preheat the broiler to high.

Spread the cream cheese on 1 slice of bread, and the chocolate-hazelnut on the other slice of bread. Place the bananas on 1 slice. Butter the outer sides of the slices of bread. Place the sandwiches on a baking sheet and broil in the oven, flipping over halfway through, until both sides are golden brown, about 5-10 minutes.

Dessert Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Dessert Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.

Dessert Wine Pairing

Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based desserts; sauternes or sweet German wines with pound cake, cheesecake, and other mildly sweet desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines with sweeter desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines, port, madeira, late-harvest zinfandel, or cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts.
