Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Split Sandwich

I thought this might be a fun dinner so I picked it out. It was easy to make, but he didn't like it. He said it was very weird. I liked it but I don't think it's good for a dinner. Maybe a brunch or a snack. It has a lot of flavors and it's fun, but it is weird. Not a make-again for us unless we babysit Ingrid's kid. Hah!

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Split Sandwich
CL, January 2006

This fun, kid-friendly indulgence was a hit at taste testing and received our highest rating. The recipe can easily be multiplied to make as many sandwiches as you need.

2 (1-ounce) slices firm white sandwich bread, divided
1 teaspoon butter, softened
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 teaspoon semisweet chocolate minichips
1 large strawberry, thinly sliced
1/2 small banana, cut lengthwise into 3 slices (about 2 ounces)
1 tablespoon pineapple jam

Spread one side of each white bread slice with 1/2 teaspoon butter. Combine peanut butter and honey; spread over plain side of 1 bread slice. Sprinkle with chocolate chips; top evenly with strawberry slices and banana slices.

Spread pineapple jam over plain side of remaining bread slice. Carefully assemble sandwich.

Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sandwich; cook 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.

Yield: 1 sandwich
