Grilled Sandwiches

This post contains three recipes.

  • Banana Nutella Triple-Decker
  • Monte Cristo
  • The Elvis Presley 

Banana Nutella Triple-Decker ingredients
Makes 1
4 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
3 slices brioche
2 Tbsp butter
1 ripe banana, cut in half lengthwise and then into slices (divided use)
1/2 cup Nutella, divided

Fleur de sel

In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs and milk. Dip brioche in the egg wash on both sides, allowing it to absorb.

Heat butter in a large sauté pan over Medium heat; when butter foams, add brioche and cook, turning once or twice, until golden brown on both sides and cooked through. Remove from pan.

Place a piece of brioche on a plate. Top with half of the Nutella and half of the banana slices; sprinkle with salt.

Cover with a second piece of brioche. Repeat layers, ending with the third piec of brioche. Sprinkle Fleur de sel on top and serve warm.

Monte Cristo Sandwiches
Makes 8
6 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2-lb thinly sliced deli turkey
1/2-lb thinly sliced deli ham
8 (1-oz) slices Swiss cheese
16 slices egg bread (challah)
4 Tbsp butter (1/2 stick)

For serving
Cranberry sauce, on the side for dipping

In a medium bowl, whisk eggs and milk until well combined.

Equally divide the turkey, ham and Swiss cheese on 8 slices of bread. Top with remaining slices of bread.

In a large skillet, melt 1 Tbsp butter over Medium heat. Dip two sandwiches, one at a time, in the egg mixture, coating completely. Place in skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until egg is golden and cheese is melted.

Repeat with remaining sandwiches, adding more butter as needed. Slice sandwiches on the diagonal and serve immediately with dipping sauce, if desired.

Makes 4
2 Tbsp butter, softened
8 slices white bread
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1 large, ripe banana, cut into slices about 1/2-inch thick
1/4 cup honey
12 slices bacon, sauteed until crispy and drained on paper towels (optional)

Spread the butter on 1 side of each slice of bread and divide into two groups. Then, for one group, spread peanut butter on the other side. With butter-side down, place banana slices on top and drizzle with honey.

Add three bacon slices on top of the bananas; then, place the unbuttered-side of remaining bread slices on top of the bacon. Now you have four sandwiches, butter-side, out ready to grill.

Place sandwiches on a preheated grill pan or griddle; when golden brown and crispy, flip over. When the sandwiches are browned on both sides, remove to plates. Slice in half diagonally and serve immediately.
