Nutella Banana Breakfast Tramezzino

Nutella Banana Breakfast Tramezzino

Nutella.  Need I say more?  Everything tastes so much better with Nutella…not to mention a simple spoon!  After I had caught my son eyeing me inquisitively after I had shoved the THIRD spoonful of Nutella into my mouth, I thought it would only be fair to let him see taste what all the fun was about!

Of course, a spoonful of Nutella for him just wouldn’t do so I whipped up this breakfast sammie (to his EXTREME delight, might I add!)

A tramezzino is a popular, inexpensive sandwich (usually with the crusts cut off) that can be found in just about every cafe in Italy.  I pinned the term “tramezzino” for this recipe simply because the shoe fits-it has Nutella in it and we’re in Italy, so why not spice it up with an Italian name?

By the way, I’d like to think I’m on to something here as I’ve yet to see a breakfast or dessert tramezzino!  However, I know well enough that that Italians like to keep their tramezzini simple (or anything else for that matter) with a slice or two of prosciutto and some cheese.  No messing with the tramezzino here!

Well, they can keep their tramezzino simple…and I’ll just have to keep this sweet, decadent, version to myself 😉

Ingredients
about 1/2 ripe banana, thinly sliced
1 heaping tbsp. (or more!) of Nutella
*You can also substitute Nutella with natural peanut butter of your favourite nut butter.
1 tsp. coconut oil (or butter) for frying
2 slices sandwich bread of choice

Spread Nutella onto one slice of bread.  Slice banana thinly (you’ll need at least 9 pieces to cover the surface of the bread) then layer over the Nutella.

Top with the second piece of bread then flatten the sandwich with your hand or the back of spatula.  This will keep the sandwich together better so none of the gooey deliciousness oozes out 😉

Melt coconut oil in a small frying pan on medium heat for about 1 minute.  Once melted, add the sandwich and fry on each side for about 2 minutes or until slightly browned.

*I like to flatten the sandwich with a hamburger press or flat spatula to keep as much of the gooeyness inside as possible!

Allow to cool for a few minutes then slice into quarters or as desired.

This sandwich almost didn’t make the cut!  Every time I repositioned the pieces to take a photograph a little bit of Nutella would ooze out onto my finger, which I then HAD to lick off, which then tempted me to scoop out more…you know how the story goes!  😉

Flattening the sandwich during the cooking process does HELP keep everything intact but once your kid gets their hands on it, there’s not controlling the gooey mess! 😉

Be prepared for somewhat of a mess….but it’s well worth it!

The best part of making this sandwich (alright, the second best part after eating it) is watching my son devour it!

The aftermath…watching TV and completely unaware of the state he was in! 😉

  • These fancy Italian names you have for food makes them sound 100x more delicious than the English name. LOL.

    My DD is in love with Nutella but not bananas so now we’re going to try hiding them in her sandwich and see how that works out.

    Your son’s expression is priceless! I love it! 🙂

    • Thanks! That’s the point, lol! It wouldn’t have sounded the same had I called it; “Nutella and Banana Sandwich!” Maybe you could try mashing the bananas and hiding them in there…or double the dose of Nutella!! 😉
