We sometimes go through food obsessions. This week it was this ham avocado panini sensation. We cracked open our George-Foreman Grill and discovered our love for paninis. If you don’t have a panini grill, no fear. You can easily use a normal pan and then use a spatula to flip it over. Our banana peanut butter sandwich is also delicious paninified. 🙂
This ham avocado panini became our personal favorite. The crowning jewels in this yummy sandwich are the avocado, cheese, and cucumbers. Those three items go perfectly together. Ky has been really busy studying for the MCAT, so we have been enjoying lots of fast, easy, and delicious sandwiches.
Ham Avocado Panini
Time: 10 minutes
Ham, 1 slice
Avocado, mashed and salted
Put avocado and honey on separate bread pieces. Place all other items on bread. For best results, grill/panini sandwich to melt the cheese and toast the bread. Enjoy!
My husband and I literally ate this banana sandwich every single day for college. It’s the perfect treat when you’re always on the go and need something portable and sustainable. After eating this sandwich for years, it’s hard for me to go back to the boring PB&J. The banana gives the bread moisture and a sense of purpose. Make sure you use natural peanut butter. Stay away from any hydrogenated fats. And I think it tasted better when it’s just roasted peanuts and salt.
The very first time I made this banana sandwich for Ky (my husband) was when he asked me to hike to the top of Mount Timpanogos. I volunteered to provide the lunch. At the top of the mountain with the amazing view, we sat and ate our banana, peanut butter and honey sandwich. Right after he leaned over and bam! That was our first kiss. So you might say this sandwich has cupid like qualities too :). Either way it’s easy to make and super delicious.
