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.

    Ive never heard of Biscoffs spread but from the looks of this sandwich I need to find some. It looks heavenly.

    • Cassie replied: — May 9th, 2012 @ 4:20 pm

      It’s made from Biscoff cookies…sort of the consistency of PB but sweet, caramely and so good! I buy it at Wal-Mart, Target, World Market and some local grocery stores.

    THIS is pure, delightful, evil. We’ll do the intervention when your jar runs out, okay?

    • Cassie replied: — May 9th, 2012 @ 4:20 pm

      Sounds like a good deal to me. I guess I need an endless supply then, huh?!?!

    HOLY YUM!! Cassie this looks incredible – so gooey! What a yummy lunchtime treat. I actually have a jar of TJs cookie butter, I bet that would be amazing in this sandwich since I don’t have biscoff spread!

    • Cassie replied: — May 9th, 2012 @ 4:22 pm

      I bet you are right! I use them pretty interchangeably!

    I want one of these now! I passed the Biscoff at the store the other day; I can’t believe I did. I just don’t trust myself around this stuff but I am caving in and grabbing a jar when I am at the store so I can make this pronto! 🙂

    • Cassie replied: — May 9th, 2012 @ 4:13 pm

      I have to make myself pass by it at times because I don’t trust myself by putting it in my cart. Hope you enjoy this!

    I probably shouldn’t tell you that I have an unopened jar and package of cookies sitting in my pantry right now huh? I bought double and have managed to hold off on opening the extras.

    • Cassie replied: — May 9th, 2012 @ 4:12 pm

      Yeah jars do not stay unopened for very long in my house. And then they rarely last very long once they do get opened. It is my current weakness, no doubt!

    Tina@flourtrader — May 8, 2012 @ 4:43 pm

    This is a delicious blend of some rich ingredients. However, I am sure it will satisfy any sweet craving and I will not be hungry for quite some time. This sandwich does put a different perspective on grilled cheese-so bravo to your creative mind! Have a nice evening!

    • Cassie replied: — May 9th, 2012 @ 4:18 pm

      It is definitely a sweet sandwich but amazing! Thanks Tina!

    Oh.. my…..slurp! What a great grilled “cheese”. 🙂 Amazing! I am so sorry to hear about your computer. My external hard-drive totally crashed over the weekend and it backed all my food pictures… I had a small meltdown. 🙁 I bet you’re totally excited about the new computer.. it sounds like a dream computer. 🙂 So happy you had an amazing anniversary. 🙂

    • Cassie replied: — May 9th, 2012 @ 4:08 pm

      I would absolutely melt down! Luckily I was able to see enough of the screen to transfer all of my documents to the new computer but a backup is always a good idea. I hope you can recover them somehow!

    I’ve never tried Biscoff yet. I do make banana & nutella sandwich sometimes for my kids. Cream cheese sounds good. Better find Biscoff first. 🙂

    • Cassie replied: — May 9th, 2012 @ 4:04 pm

    I just had a crepe the other day that was filled with bananas and covered in Biscoff. I loved the combo, (although there was too much Biscoff so it overpowered everything else). I think this sandwich sounds perfect!!

    • Cassie replied: — December 31st, 2012 @ 9:21 am
