Want One??

You are probably thinking what in the world is the big deal about a sandwich? Trust me, it isn't any kind of sandwich. A sandwich contains (my style) sliced turkey from the deli, plenty of mayo, a bit of mustard, provalone cheese, & lettuce. Simply put, this sandwich doesn't contain any of that. No, this has, really ready?? Peanut butter, bananas, marshmallows, and reese cups. Combine that and then grill it on the stove. What could possibly be better?? Oh yeah, I might add putting all this on two slices of "big" Texas Toast. Yum!
See that?? Who could resist?
"Reeselicious Banana Sandwich" (a big thanks to Jenny for another yummy recipe)

2 slices whole grain bread (I used Texas Toast)
¼ Cup creamy peanut butter (I used Reese peaunut butter)
½ banana, cut into thin slices
24-30 mini marshmallows
1 Reeses Peanut Butter Cup, normal size (I used about 4 minuature Reese)
2 Tablespoons soft butter
Powdered sugar to sprinkle on top
1. Spread peanut butter onto both sides of bread. Lay banana slices over one piece of bread and marshmallows over the other piece, pressing down gently. Break apart the Peanut Butter cup and evenly place in between marshmallows. Carefully lay the bread with banana over the marshmallow side and press gently. Spread butter onto both sides of bread and cook both sides in a medium skillet over medium low heat until golden brown and marshmallows are warm and slightly melted.
2. Let cool for 5-7 minutes before slicing. Sprinkle both sides with powdered sugar and serve warm.

My cutie-pie little brother, who waited so patiently for me to make these.
BTW, could any of you guys recommend some cooking/baking books that you love - I am in search of some! Thanks!~

Sherry Yard's cookbooks are fantastic. Desserts by the Yard: From Brooklyn to Beverly Hills & The Secrets of Baking... both are favorites.

OhioMom said...

Rebekah C said...

caitlyn said...

What a yummy sandwich! Looks much better than the regular ole PB&J I ate yesterday.
My favorite baking book is Dorie Greenspan's Baking From My Home to Yours.

Jenny said...

Wow, total sugar rush. More ways to use peanut butter cups, love it!

giz said...

Get yourself Dorie Greenspan's book - Baking from my House to Yours - it's cheapest off Amazon and everything turns out great.

Jessica said...

YUM!!!!! I can't come here without finding something else to make! If I made this sandwich at my house I'd never even get to try it--we are a bunch of peanutbutter cup junkies! Good luck with the turkey burgers- they were quite yummy. I used a griddle on my stove instead of the grill to cook the burgers because the turkey is so lean and the burgers are fragile.
