We all know that breakfast is important, but did you know that today is extra-special? It’s World Nutella Day! In honour of February 5th, here is a strawberry mini panini recipe. This delicious celebration was started by two fans in Italy in 2007 and has spread, like Nutella on toast, worldwide. In a throwback to the brand’s Italian roots, Nutella is sharing a Nutella® and Strawberry Mini Paninis breakfast recipe. These delicious paninis are filled with fresh strawberries, creamy ricotta cheese and, of course, Nutella.
In honour of this day, Nutella is announcing the first recipients of the Nutella Breakfast Table Fund. Launched in September 2012, with $100,000 to be given away, the Nutella Breakfast Table Fund will be supporting individuals and organizations committed to championing breakfast.
