These are delightful little buggers. I don’t care what any judges say. May favorite dessert mountain pie. Of course, I have also gone on record to saying that if I could only take one food item with me to Gilligan’s Island, it would be peanut butter (creamy Jif, of course…there really shouldn’t be any other kind.)
Okay, so here is how you make these little Big Hunk O’ Yums.
Like any mountain pie with bread, start by buttering up with outsides of the bread and get ’em tucked in the hot pie iron.
‘Elvis’ Camping Dessert Recipe:
2 slices of white bread
creamy or crunchy peanut butter
1/2 banana, sliced
Butter both slices of bread. Place in the pie iron butter side down. On one piece, spread the peanut butter, top with banana slices, and then add a dollop of marshmallow cream, spreading slightly. Close the iron and cook until the bread is slightly brown. Remove from pie iron and quickly sprinkle with confectioners sugar.
“How can you go wrong with peanut butter and bananas?” The judges liked the special touch of presentation and sprinkling of confectioner’s sugar on the outside. It tasted delicious and was a definite success, but there was some tough competition in the category.
One of the judges had never had peanut butter and bananas together (I know… kind of sounds like they were missing out on the finer things of life.) But, they are now in on the wonderfulness of the combination.
