Saturday Stirrings

I wouldn't serve this to company, since it's pretty messy and needs to be made right before eating . . . but it sure is good!

If you're feeling Greek this week, be sure to take a peek at DeeDee's!

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Split Sandwich
2 (1-ounce) slices firm white sandwich bread, divided (can use wheat)
1 teaspoon butter, softened
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
2 teaspoons honey (can be omitted)
1/2 teaspoon semisweet chocolate minichips (I double this)
1 large strawberry, thinly sliced
1/2 small banana, cut lengthwise into 3 slices (about 2 ounces)
1 tablespoon pineapple jam (do NOT sub other pineapple combination jams, strawberry jam good)

Spread one side of each bread slice with 1/2 teaspoon butter. (Less messy if put butter on top slice after sandwich is assembled) 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.

I'll never be able to eat grilled cheese sandwiches again... I'll be wanting to put pnut butter & bananas on it instead!

Hop on over to for my Kiss Me I’m Irish Beef & Cabbage. Want to know why they called it “corned” beef? Come on, I’ll tell ya….

This sounds wonderful! I love regular old peanut butter and banana sandwiches, so I can only imagine how good these are!

This sounds so yummy! I recently discovered the chocolate peanut butter grilled sandwich, so this is just one step down that line! YUM!

Nice blog! I have never heard of that but I will be trying it since I love Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwiches, sometimes I add Marshmallow Fluff to it! I will give your version a try too!
