I often eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches for a filling breakfast before school. It keeps me full and gives me a pretty good protein fix to start the day. Today, I was feeling like getting a little more fancy with it, so I decided to grill the sandwiches in a skillet in order to achieve that melty, gooey effect. It worked. This is perfect for a filling, healthy start to your day or as a hangover tamer. Obviously a recipe isn't really necessary for this, but here it is just in case:
2 bananas, sliced
1/2 cup peanut butter, divided
4 slices of whole wheat bread
1 tsp. non-dairy butter spread, divided
Makes 2 sandwiches.
Total Cook Time: less than 10 minutes.
1. Spread 1/4 cup of peanut butter out on 2 slices of bread. Cover each slice with one banana's worth of banana slices. Next, assemble the sandwiches: top each peanut butter and banana-covered slice of bread with a plain slice of bread. (You can add more peanut butter if you want)
2. Heat 1 tsp. of buttery spread on medium-high heat in a medium skillet. Add the sandwiches, and flip them so that both sides have butter on them. Cook each sandwich until both sides are browned, about 3 minutes on each side.
3. Slice in half, and revel in the melty glory.
