Peanut Butter Spiced Banana Bacon Brioche Sandwich

Elevated Elvis PBBB (Peanut Butter, Bacon, Banana) Brioche Sandwich

This sandwich is truly elevated - every bite highlights the nutty concentration of peanuts, sweet bananas or the satisfying crunch of salted peanuts and crisp bacon.  I think Elvis would be “all shook up!”

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tablespoons butter for toasting
  • 2 slices of Brioche Bread
  • 1 tablespoon of salted peanuts chopped
  • 2 slices of bacon cooked crisp and cut into 2” segments
  • 3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • ½ banana sliced
  • 4 tablespoons of Spiced Rum Banana Spread

Spiced Rum Banana Spread

  • 2 (260g) bananas
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1+1 tablespoon spiced rum
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Instructions
 

Spiced Rum Banana Spread

  • Puree banana (by hand, or food processor or stick blender or mixer)
  • In a small pot on medium heat, add purred bananas, spiced rum, vanilla, ginger and nutmeg
  • Bring banana mixture to boil or bubbling and use a silicon spatula to stir as the banana mixture until it thickens, around 5 minutes.
  • Turn heat off and allow spread to cool. Spread will be soft, thick and turn grey-brown color.
  • Store in sealed container in the fridge.

Sandwich Assembly

  • On a hot frying pan, melt butter and lay brioche slices in buttered pan to toast. Flip over to the other side to toast.
  • On one side of the brioche, spread thick layer of Spiced Rum Banana Spread.
  • Sprinkle peanuts on top of banana spread.
  • Lay bacon on top of the peanuts.
  • Lay 1-2 layers of banana slices on top of the bacon.
  • On other side of the brioche, spread a thick layer of peanut butter
  • Lay the peanut butter face down on top of the bananas.

Notes

Note:  I recommend not slicing this sandwich in half when warm since the layers will squish out.
Note: To make this sandwich nut free, substitute with toasted chickpeas and sunflower butter.
