When you make bread as moist and tasty as the banana-oatmeal bread that I wrote about yesterday, it just seems to be a shame to smear some butter on it and call it a day. There has to be more to this world than bread and butter, right? Well, Elvis would be proud because I decided to take the banana bread and throw on some PB (though he might not be as happy that I left out the bacon... it just didn't seem right, but maybe next time!).
This sandwich could be served for breakfast or a snack or even dessert . Really, just eat it whenever you want to because it's tasty and fun. And a little bit messy with the melty PB. If you are really feeling wild, you could throw some chocolate chips in there. Oh, yum.
Here is how you make the grilled PB&A (this makes two sandwiches):
4 slices of banana-oatmeal bread 4-6 thin apple slices 4 Tbsp. peanut butter 4 tsp. butter or margarine
The process for making this sandwich is just like making a grilled cheese, but with different ingredients. For each sandwich, spread 1 teaspoon of butter on one side of each slice of bread. These will be the outsides of the sandwich. Then spread peanut butter on the insides of one of the slices (2 tablespoons). Lay the apple slices on the pb and then put the other slice of bread on top.
Put the sandwiches on a skillet over medium heat. Let them cook for about 5 minutes (or until the bread is toasted) and then flip them and cook the other side.
Then you're done! It's that easy!
