This is a great breakfast, dessert or snack in under 2 minutes.  Substitute your favorite fruit jam for additional flavor options.  And if you don’t have a panini press, you can fry up in a skillet in a jiff.

Raspberry Jam Panini


2 tablespoons raspberry jam
2 slices of Challah bread
2 tablespoons butter, softened
confectioners’ sugar for dusting


Make a sandwich with the Challah bread and jam. If using a panini press, heat according to instructions. Butter both sides of the bread evenly. Put on panini press for about 2 minutes or until golden brown on the outside. Remove from heat and dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve. This recipe serves 1 person.

If using a non-stick skillet, do not butter bread. Rather heat butter over medium high heat in skillet. Cook sandwich until golden and crisp, turning once. Remove from pan and dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve.
