I have always enjoyed Elvis’ famous “Fried Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich” (so does Nigella, and here is her posting and recipe – http://www.nigella.com/recipes/view/elvis-presleys-fried-peanut-butter-and-banana-sandwich-3106) so when Jan Lines, a friend and neighbor, introduced me to this NEW combination – of peanut butter and brown sugar – I KNEW I would love it…and I think you will too!
Fried Peanut Butter and Brown Sugar Sandwich
Much like the “Fried Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich” I posted about earlier – this sandwich really depends on your particular taste. If you like a little more peanut butter – add it. If you want a sweeter sandwich – add a little more brown sugar. The recipe below is how I like mine – test it out and then change it to your taste…
2 slices white bread
6 tablespoons salted butter, softened
3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
Start by melting 4 tablespoons of the salted butter in a skillet over medium heat. Spread the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter on the 2 slices of bread – one tablespoon per slice.
Spread the peanut butter on the other side of the buttered bread, and sprinkle the brown sugar evenly on top. Close the sandwich so that both buttered sides of the bread are facing out.
Fry both sides of the sandwich in the skillet with the melted butter, flipping to brown both sides.
I like mine a little crispy – crispiness here is really up to you. Just keep an eye on it – and once it turns brown be careful – it can turn black quickly.
Once fried to perfection, remove to paper towel and allow to cool slightly.
Cut and eat.
