This Split is Bananas

This Split is Bananas

A treat for your sweet tooth, this grilled cheese is inspired by the classic Banana Split sundae and all things whimsical. Sweet and creamy fontina and mascarpone act as the stars in this sandwich. Paired with fresh strawberries, caramelized banana, cherries, chocolate and a hint of copper vat parmesan for nuttiness, this grilled cheese is a delight for adults and kids alike.

Ingredients










Cooking Instructions

1

In small skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add banana slices and salt. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until bananas are golden. Flip banana slices over and cook for another 3 minutes. Remove slices and cool.


2

Butter one side of each bread slice. On the flip side, spread a layer of mascarpone and a layer of cherry chocolate sauce. On the 4 remaining bread slices, layer 2 slices of fontina and the strawberry and banana slices. Top with 2 more slices of fontina and a layer of parmesan. Place the buttered bread slice, mascarpone/cherry chocolate sauce side down, on top.


3

Heat griddle to 350°F. Add the sandwiches, buttered side down, onto the griddle or skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until bread is golden brown and cheese starts to melt. Carefully turn sandwiches over and cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until bread is golden brown and cheese has melted.

Remove sandwiches from the griddle, cut in half and serve.
