This sandwich gets its name from the King himself. Apparently Elvis used to be a huge fan of banana and peanut butter sandwiches. Most recipes call for bacon as well, but we've added in something all kids will love: chocolate. If you want to try the original, just leave out the hazelnut spread and add some candied bacon instead.
Toasties are such an easy thing to prepare with kids. There's no fire, and there are usually plenty of steps that kids can do themselves. This one is sweet, and probably not the healthiest of sandwiches, but it's a perfect snack to enjoy on a cold night while you snuggle up in front of the television. Perhaps you could even listen to some old Elvis tunes while you make one.
Ingredients Two slices of white bread
Smooth peanut butter
Nutella or another hazelnut spread
Turn on your toasted sandwich maker, then lay out your two slices of bread. If you keep your bread in the freezer, defrost your slices first.
Spread peanut butter on one slice of bread and your hazelnut spread on the other slice.
Slice your banana, then start layering the banana on to one of your bread slices.
Place the other slice on top to make a sandwich.
Put the sandwich in the toasted sandwich maker and lower the lid. You want the outside to get toasted and a little bit crispy, while the peanut butter and hazelnut spread inside gets nice and gooey. It probably won't take as long as a cheese toastie and you also won't have to worry about cheese oozing out of the sides.
Once it's toasted sprinkle the top with some cinnamon sugar, and then cut in half.
These toasties also make a delicious campfire snack. If you're going camping look at getting a cast iron jaffle maker, then you can cook these up over the fire.
