Tips and Techniques

  • This fried sandwich can be easily modified. You can switch the bread out for any type that you like and use either creamy or crunchy peanut butter. It can be fried in a skillet or made with a panini press.
  • If you are using larger slices of sourdough bread, you may need to use extra peanut butter and slice the banana a bit thinner to ensure you have enough to cover the entire slice of bread.
