Are you hungry while watching CMT’s New Comedy #StillTheKing tonight? Well do I have a Hunka Hunka Burning Love sandwich for you, Fried Peanut Butter & Banana. Even though this recipe does not include bacon it has been referred to as a favorite of Elvis Presley who was famously renowned for his food cravings. So here’s to the “King.”
2-3 Ripe bananas
8 Slices whole wheat bread
3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
3 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1. In a small bowl mix together peanut butter, honey and cinnamon. Slice bananas into 1/4 thick slices. Spread the peanut butter mixture on four slices of bread and cover with banana slices. Top with remaining 4 slices of bread. Spread whipped butter on both sides of sandwiches.
2. In frying pan melt 3 tablespoons of butter – make sure butter does not burn. Grill sandwiches in frying pan until each side is golden brown.
3. Combine sugar and cinnamon in shallow plate. Coat grilled sandwiches with mixture. Cut diagonally and serve hot.
*CHEF’S TIP – Want a little variety? Try Nutella or add some marshmallow creme, or some bacon. For all I care throw some jelly on that thang. Be creative and just let your imagination run wild.
