Breakfast Panini: Peanut butter and banana
Rather than frying a sandwich, I thought I'd press it, I'm sure this has been done before, but I was just really experimenting, the one thing I would have done differently is use a less ripened banana, but that may just be personal preference.
This starts off simple, I heat the foreman grill, I have one of the old slanting kinds, but it works just fine, slant and all.
then spread peanut butter on one side of bread, and place sliced bananas on the other, I topped them with a little raw sugar, to help the caramel flavor along and a little cinnamon, for the whole baked goods taste that goes oh so well with breakfast. A bit chocolate or marshmallow would be great additions as well.
I sprayed one side of the bread with a little cooking spray, placed that side down on the grilled, sprayed the other side and closed the lid, around 5 minutes later the perfect crust on the outside.
2 slices multiograin bread
2 tbsp peanut butter
