Simple and delicious - great for a quick snack! I love peanut butter and apples but warm them up so the peanut butter is nice and melty and place them both between two slices of toasty warm crunchy bread and well...you have a really nice treat. I used a Granny Smith apple and I can't wait to try this with crunchy peanut butter.
I made this for my son's lunch. He is strictly a PB&J kid. He was a little upset that I made something different. I called them "Apple Pie Sandwhiches" Not only were they a hit but now the other moms want the recipe. I did mine differently. I sauteed the apples in a skillet with butter, cinnamon and sugar. Then set the apples aside. I browned the bread on the skillet with the butter I used for the apples. Then I put peanut butter on the side of the untoasted bread slices, spooned the apples over one peanut butter slice and placed the other on top. I cut them in fourths for easier handling. I made these for my other kids too. It was the first time lunch time was silent.
This was really yummy-tasted more like dessert than lunch. The cinnamon/sugar could probably be adjusted to suit taste. I used PB on both sides of the bread and added cin/sug. to the tops of the bread while frying which gave it a fried dough taste. My 5 yr old said this was the best lunch she's had in her whole life;-. Next time I'd like to try actually grilling these in on a panini grill to maybe cut down on the calories. Thanks!
I really loved these but I did modify a bit so... I am sure it would taste good the way it is written but I am of a creative mind and like to experiment. Here's what I did just in case you want to try some of my modifications. First of all I always melt my butter for grilled sandwiches so I can use less. I only made two sandwiches so 4 slices of bread but I only used about 1.5 TBSP of butter (salted) by brushing it on the outsides of the bread with a silicon brush. I did this before spreading peanut butter on the other sides of the bread. Second though I only made 2 sandwiches I used almost all of the apple. Thirdly I precooked the apple for 30 seconds in the microwave with the cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on them. (I was afraid that the bread I was using wouldn't allow the heat to penetrate enough to cook the apple at all... I think this made a big difference. Yum!) Finally I had this great apple cranberry whole grain bread laying around that sounded like it would be terrific with this recipe and it was! My 95 year old grandma and my 9 year old daughter both liked the sandwiches very much. It was quite filling too.
Grilled PB Apple Sandwich Haiku: "Tasted like dessert. (Maybe isn't a bad thing.) Bit too sweet for me." Made these for lunch today and my vote next time is either for a grilled cheese or a peanut butter banana sandwich. (Or just simple smears of peanut butter on apple slices.) These sandwiches were good but didn't do it for me as far as being a lunch was concerned. Only change that I made was eyeballing the peanut butter which I spread on both sides of the bread. Much to my surprise my 3-year old dissected her sandwich and left apple carnage on her plate.
This was awesome (at least according to my kids and husband). In the middle of my dinner preparation (I was making a brand new meal) I realized my kids and husband would not like at all what I was making. I needed something fast and I recalled viewing this recipe. It was so easy and loved by the whole family. Thanks!
