You’ve never had grilled peanut butter and jelly? Assemble your sandwich as you always do. Spread butter (or in this case banana butter) on the outside pieces of bread and grill the sandwich like you do with grilled cheese. The natural sugar in the banana will caramelize, giving the bread a nice crust. Plus, peanut butter and banana are a marriage made in heaven.
I came across this recipe in the latest Food and Wine. This magazine is a great resource. I love the accessibility of the recipes. Or, in this case, the twist on something simple. Flavored butter is something I make often, but I never considered adding banana. The recipe pairs this with blueberry muffins. Which, I’m making right now. I’m sure blueberry zucchini muffins would also work.
Impress your friends and whip this up. Heck, this would be a great gift. Add it to a basket of muffins and enjoy the accolades.
