I present an alternative afternoon snack or brunch idea. Grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich.
You have the ingredients on hand. They are all staples.
I started with this recipe, but made a few changes to my sandwich [I added butter and cinnamon sugar].
- Spread peanut butter on one slice of bread and place sliced pieces of banana on top. [I cut the banana in 1/2 and sliced it the long way.]
- Place other slice of bread on top. Butter top of piece of bread and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
- Heat skillet over med. high heat and place buttered side down. Butter other side of sandwich and sprinkle on more of that cinnamon goodness! Grill until golden brown.
It far surpassed my expectations. The addition of butter and cinnamon sugar created a crispy, sweet outer shell on the bread. The insides were warm and gooey. It is certainly more sweet than savory. Kids of all ages will devour it! And the variations are endless.
