Grilled French Bread Dessert Sandwiches

By Paula Deen

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pint strawberries
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 8 1-inch slices (thick) french bread
  • 4 tablespoons divided marshmallow creme
  • 4 tablespoons divided chocolate hazelnut flavored spread
  • 2 sliced bananas
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

Directions

Spray the grill rack with nonstick, nonflammable cooking spray. Preheat the grill to medium heat.

In a small bowl, add the strawberries, sugar, and warm water. Set aside. The sugar will dissolve and create a syrup.

Spread 1 side of half of the bread slices with about 1 tablespoon marshmallow creme. Spread 1 side of the remaining bread slices with about 1 tablespoon chocolate hazelnut spread. Place sliced bananas on top. Top each marshmallow creme bread slice with a chocolate hazelnut bread slice to make a sandwich. Brush the outsides of the sandwiches evenly with the melted butter.

Grill the sandwiches until the bread is toasted and the marshmallow creme has melted, about 2 minutes per side. Drizzle with the strawberries and their syrup on top and serve immediately.
