A sweet, warm breakfast idea. Cooked like a grilled cheese, but filled with melted peanut butter and warm bananas.

I made two different types of grilled sandwiches one with chunky peanut butter and bananas and one with dark chocolate-peanut butter and bananas. I melted a bit of butter in the pan to cook the sandwiches in which made it easier for me. The kids loved this combo and devoured the sandwiches. Will make this again but I think next time I might try cream cheese and strawberry preserves with sliced strawberries for myself. Read More

Edible but not too tasty - I used a chunky peanut butter that had a lot of oil in it but the sandwich was very dry. I wouldn't make it again. Read More

Simply awesome! A slightly sweet warm treat for breakfast or just about any other time of day! It's perfect when you need something on the go or for a quick snack. I love when a few simple ingredients come together to form something so good! I made mine for breakfast using cinnamon-raisin bread vs. whole wheat and sliced the banana nice and thin. I'm a definite peanut butter addict so this was right up my alley! You just gotta love peanut butter when it's nice and melty! Read More

I made this for Husband last night and he asked me to drizzle a little honey over the bananas. This added a nice flavor. My only suggestion would be to use nice ripe bananas - mine were a little bit on on the green side and not terribly flavorsome. Thanks! Read More

Just like Josey said serve open-faced... with just two little changes. First don't make this into a sandwich but rather into French Toast! Second be sure to use plenty of maple syrup. Read More

Make sure your peanut buttter layers are really thin so it doesn't overpower the sandwich. I used natural peanut butter as well as a small amount of butter in the pan. I sliced my banana into 3 lengthwise pieces and placed on the bread then drizzled a small amount of agave onto the bananas. Read More

I often make mine in the "Snackster " or sandwich maker. You can just put it in and forget about it and it comes out perfect every time! Read More
