This is from Everyday Italian Giada De Laurentiis's first cookbook. I made these for a sleepover as a snack. The recipe does not call for butter to grille the bread, I did put a light coating of butter on the bread. I'm sure you can do it either way.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices ciabatta, sliced a 1/2 inch thick
  • 14 cup nutella, spread


  1. Preheat a griddle or a ridged grille pan over a medium heat.
  2. Grill the bread until toasted 2 minutes per side.
  3. Spread the Nutella over one piece of grilled bread and top with second piece of toast.
  4. The directions do not state to add butter to grille the bread but I did put a thin layer of butter on the bread to grille it.

A very simple and tasty sandwich. I used my grill pan and also buttered the bread for grilling. Could not find ciabatta bread so i used sour dough. Spread the nutella while the bread was still warm than cut in half and served. I enjoyed this sandwich with my coffee this morning for breakfast. Thank you *666* for posting this recipe.

I am always looking for new and different ideas for children's tea parties and what could be better than this sandwich! I did use a different bread - Pepperidge Farm thin white bread, lightly toasted. Then spread Nutella while still warm, cut off the crusts, cut into triangles and served. All I can say is YUMMY!
