Nutella Panini with Strawberries

From October 12, 2008: I bought myself an indoor grill/panini press/griddle appliance this weekend.  So far I am pretty happy with it.  I have used the all-in-one gadget to make pancakes, grill eggplant and zucchini, toast two types of paninis, and do eggs-over-easy. The first thing my son and I made with it was these yummy dessert paninis.  We got the idea from the menu of a local wine bar called Kybecca in downtown Fredericksburg, VA.  We used store-bought Sara Lee pound cake for this recipe.

Nutella Panini

slices of pound cake
Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)
sliced strawberries (bananas or raspberries would be good too)
powdered sugar
whipped cream

Preheat grill or pan (medium heat).
Spread (about a tablespoon) Nutella on each slice of pound cake.  Arrange strawberry slices on top of the Nutella on one of the slices and top with the other slice (so that the strawberries are sandwiched between the Nutella).
Place sandwich on the grill and toast for about 2 minutes (or until warmed through).
Dust panini with powdered sugar and serve with a dollop of whippped cream.
