- 8 slices country white bread
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 4 to 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped or broken into pieces
- 4 small bananas, cut into 1/4-inch rounds
Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium heat.
On a clean work surface, lay out 4 slices bread. Spread butter on each piece. Flip over 4 pieces bread and spread 2 tablespoons peanut butter on them. Divide the chocolate evenly over the peanut butter, then arrange banana slices on top of chocolate. Top each with a remaining slice of buttered bread. Place 2 sandwiches at a time onto the grill or grill pan (if using a grill pan, top with a sandwich press or heavy plate) and cook for 3 minutes or just until chocolate has melted. Repeat with 2 remaining sandwiches. (Alternate cooking method: Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a saute pan; when hot and bubbly, add 2 sandwiches to pan. Cook for 2 minutes per side or until bread is golden brown and chocolate has melted. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.)
Slice sandwiches in half or in quarters and serve immediately.
Cook's Note: The sandwiches can be made with a variety of ingredients. For example, replace the chocolate with 1 tablespoon of honey or add cherry or plum jam instead of the bananas and chocolate. Almond butter can be substituted anywhere peanut butter or other nut butters are used.
