Knuckle Sandwich

This is a great recipe using Nutella!


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 pears, sliced into 3/16-inch slices, core removed
  • 4 slices store-bought pound cake (sliced like conventional sandwich bread)
  • 4 tablespoons Nutella
  • 1/3 cup whole hazelnuts, toasted with skins off


  1. In a sauté pan over medium heat, melt butter and sauté pear slices for approximately 3 minutes per side, or until they begin to brown.
  2. In a toaster, toast 4 pound cake slices. Take 2 toasted pound cake slices, smear with Nutella, sprinkle generously with hazelnuts.
  3. Top with pear slices and cover with second slice of pound cake.
  4. Cut each knuckle sandwich into 4 pieces on the diagonal and crunch away.

Yield: 4
