Griddled Banana, Mango, and Jalapeño Sandwiches

Recipe


dsc_1009


Ingredients
2 teaspoons grapeseed oil (or substitute canola oil)
4 slices (4 ounces total) dense multigrain bread (best quality), thinly sliced
2 tablespoons peanut butter, natural
1 small (1/2 cup) banana (ripe, coarsely fork-smashed) or very ripe plantain
4 ounces mango, very ripe, peeled and thinly sliced
1 large jalapeño pepper, sliced paper thin
3 tablespoons cotija or feta cheese, finely crumbled
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons powdered sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper


Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat.

Brush grapeseed oil on 1 side of each bread slice. This will be the pan-contact side. Lay out all 4 bread slices, oil side down, on foil or parchment paper (as a work surface).

Spread 1 tablespoon peanut butter evenly onto each of 2 bread slices. Evenly distribute banana over the peanut buttered bread. Shingle mango evenly over banana. Scatter jalapeño over mango. Sprinkle evenly with cheese and salt. Close the sandwiches. Press gently to adhere all the ingredients.

Griddle the sandwiches for 4 to 6 minutes on each side, pressing gently to ensure that all the surface area of the bread is in contact with the pan. Be patient, and let it cook without peeking (you’ll get a more even toast that way).

Combine powdered sugar and red pepper. Cut sandwiches in half, and dust with powdered sugar mixture.
