Biscoff Banana Grilled Cheese

Biscoff Banana Grilled Cheese |

I am only slightly obsessed with Biscoff spread.  No need to form an intervention.   YET.

I even managed to sneak it into no-bake cookies on Saturday.  You’ll see.

Biscoff Banana Grilled Cheese | Bake Your Day

This post is short for a couple reasons:

1 - yesterday was my wedding anniversary.  We spent the day shopping here and here.  At place #2 we bought a new computer (because I dropped mine on our concrete floors) so while I am writing this post, I am really itching to play around on it and edit photos on the huge-mongous monitor that is currently lighting our entire loft.

And 2 – what more is there to say about Biscoff spread?  It needs few words other than a) I love it. b) you need to try some now. and c) has anyone ever mentioned that is goes perfectly with cream cheese and bananas?

Hello, why has no one ever told me?  I scarfed this one down, and nearly immediately made another.  This combo is (dare I say it?) better than PB+banana?  Sorry, Elvis, but peanut butter has forever met its match.  Move on over.

Biscoff Banana Grilled Cheese Recipe

Yield: 1 sandwich

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Sweet, caramel-y Biscoff spread sneaked its way into a sandwich with caramelized bananas and cream cheese. Grilled to perfection and sweet as honey.

Ingredients:

1 medium banana, sliced
2 tsp. honey
2 slices sandwich bread (I used Udi's Gluten Free)
2 Tbs. creamy Biscoff Spread
2 ounces cream cheese, thinly sliced

Directions:

Heat a small skillet over medium-low heat. Add the banana slices and drizzle with honey. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until caramelized and golden brown. Remove from skillet and set aside.

Heat a griddle pan, panini press, or skillet over medium heat. Butter one side of each piece of bread. Place one piece of bread, butter side down, on the pan. Spread a thin layer (1 tablespoon) of Biscoff on the bread, top with the bananas and cream cheese. Spread the remaining Biscoff on top of the cream cheese, and place the other slice of bread on top of the cream cheese, butter side up.

Cook the sandwich for 3-4 minutes on each side until the bread is toasty and the cheese is melty.

Serve warm.

    This looks ridiculously awesome. I’ve never tried Biscoff spread but I have definitely dominated some Cookie butter from TJ’s. There’s no shame in that!

    OMG! I just recently discovered Biscoff and have been putting it on everything! Or eating it straight from the jar. This grilled cheese looks awesome! I will have to get another jar of Biscoff since I just polished mine off this morning for breakfast.

      I know what you mean! I have many Biscoff recipes on my site, I love it too! And just recently I sandwiched some between two pretzels and then dipped them in white chocolate…amazing!
