Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich





Supposedly the Peanut Butter and Banana idea came from the all time famous star, Elvis Presley. The 'Peanut Butter and Nanner' what they considered it. Whether that may be true or not, I got to say, the man had great taste. Peanut Butter and Banana themselves are great. Both have a creamy texture, and are just delicious in general. Putting both Peanut Butter and Banana together; Well, it just equals to a great combination!

I grew up eating this with my Grandpa and Nana when ever I went over to they're house. They're the grandparents. They want to spoil you. Give you all the things that you couldn't get because your parents said so. Like, getting the snacks you mother never let you have like oreos or goldfishes, or getting the expensive toy that you parents said you didn't need, or going to Chunk E' Cheese from time to time, or staying up late watching movies, or going outside to play; At which my grandparents did. I was extremely spoiled as a child by my grandparents; To be honest, I still am.

But, even now, I still always look forward to having a Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich for lunch with my Nana. The warm melted peanut butter with the warm, creamy bananas is something I can never get tired of. Its a comfort sandwich. One of the best.






Recipe

2 tbsp. peanut butter (preferably smooth)
2 slices sandwich bread
1 small ripe banana, mashed with a fork (about 1/4 cup)
2 tbsp. butter


1. Spread peanut butter evenly on 1 slice of bread, then spread mashed banana on other slice, leaving a 1/4-inch border around edge. Close sandwich, gently pressing bread slices together.

2. Heat butter in an 8- to 10-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until foam subsides, then fry sandwich, turning over once, until golden brown, about 2 minutes total.

3. Eat immediately with a knife and fork

amanda said...

yessss!!! This totally takes me back to my childhood too! These are the greatest things ever. I even like to get a little crazier by throwing in some chocolate chips for a wonderful rich breakfast, or sometimes honey goes really well with peanut butter and bananas.

i would like to try some but with me being somewhat overweight at the present time, i would have to fix me a low fat pb/banana sandwich

i have been craving peanut butter lately. i can really just open the refridgerator and just feast on a jar. i've always loved eating peanut butter with bananas but haven't been able to fix myself up some. your pictures looks so delicious, i can seriously tell you that and definitely it's a comfort sandwich. your sandwich looks extra good with the toasted bread and melted peanut butter. im usually too lazy to do so...i opt out and basically just eat it cold. regardless...who can argue the yumminess of it?
