Grilled Chocolate Sandwich

It began with me pondering on the versatility and fabulousness of bread.

Bread is a beautiful thing. I’m not talking about a sliced pre-packaged loaf by Mrs. Baird or Pepperidge Farm. I’m talking about a fresh loaf from the bakery…with bits of flour clinging on the top crust and cornmeal dusted on the bottom. A golden brown round of carbohydrate goodness.

Toasts are superb. Enjoy it with a simple pat of butter or jam or topped with a summer tomato salad drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Sandwich it with an egg salad, chicken salad or hard salami and baby kale. Spread on a bit of Nutella and you’ve got a simple dessert. Or…

Toast a couple of thin slices of French country bread in a skillet with melted butter. Flip the bread when the bottom becomes golden. Add a square or two of good quality dark chocolate and let it melt ever so slightly before removing the toast from the skillet. Assemble the sandwich like you would a grilled cheese, then serve it with a dollop of ice cream.

 

In my case, I had an unopened container of Caramel Cookie Crunch gelato in the freezer.

Simple, decadent and good to the last smudge of melted chocolate. (Go ahead and tear off a piece of bread to wipe that up; it would be a shame to waste good chocolate.)
