Peanut Butter Makes Everything Better

If you’ve been reading for a while, you’ll have noticed that I love baking especially for other people or for events.  Due to this love, I’ve discovered the world of food blogs.  So exciting.  The only problem is that I tend to veer toward the desserts and be less ecstatic about the real meals.  The real meal recipes are those that I really need!  Since I usually go to a coffee shop on Mondays before going to my ceramics class, I’ve decided to start a little series of recipe posts on Mondays.  I’ll feature a recipe and the source and any thoughts.  Maybe in the future I’ll plan ahead and take pictures of the recipes I try!  These posts might seep into the other days too, but for sure on Mondays!

Here’s today’s recipe:

Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich


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

–I don’t think you’d have to put the sandwich in a skillet.  You could probably toast the bread just as easily 🙂  I’m excited to try this soon because I love bananas and peanut and I love them together and well I’m a bread junkie too!

  1. is one of my all time favorite sandwiches.
    Whole wheat bread
    Hellman’s mayo
    Iceberg lettuce
    Creamy peanut butter.
    It sounds gross but has a good crunch and flavor
