Creamy Wisconsin Mascarpone Cheese, decadent dulce de leche, fresh bananas, and sprinkles of cookie crumbs show off the sweet side of grilled cheese. In other words, it’s a sandwich and dessert rolled into one.


Spread crumbs in pie plate or shallow dish. Butter 1 side of each bread slice, reserving 1 tablespoon butter. Spread 2 tablespoons of Mascarpone Cheese on each of the unbuttered sides of 2 bread slices. Top each with half the banana slices. Spread 2 tablespoons dulce de leche on each of the unbuttered sides of the remaining 2 bread slices. Place on other halves, buttered-side-up. Place sandwiches in crumbs and press lightly so crumbs adhere. Turn sandwiches over and coat both sides with crumbs. Heat skillet or griddle over medium heat. Melt reserved 1 tablespoon butter in skillet. Place sandwiches in skillet and grill until bottom slices and crumbs are golden brown and toasted. Flip sandwiches and continue grilling until remaining bread slices and crumbs are golden brown and toasted and cheese is melted. Transfer sandwiches to serving plates and sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
