[30 Day Challenge] Something Childish

Random Observation/Comment #375: I had my first peanut butter and jelly sandwich when I was in college. True story.


Recipe: Something childish – Grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwich

DSC_0096I don’t really eat PBJs because my Mom packed dumplings or leftovers from dinner for my elementary school lunch. I don’t think this has negatively affected my upbringing one bit.  This take on PB&J is like a grill cheese sandwich, but with peanut butter and jelly instead of cheese. Crazy, right?


Lessons Learned:

  • I put the bread into a toaster first so it’s easier to spread the butter on the bread. Unfortunately, this also made the jelly leak a little bit, so I would suggest adding less jelly. The Peanut butter sticks pretty well, so you’ll be fine with that.
  • Cut diagonally instead of horizontally/vertically. I totally eff’ed up and made a rookie mistake.
  • Eat while still hot because a cold PBJ after it’s been grilled is just a regular PBJ with extra butter infused

Final Thoughts:

DSC_0110I didn’t know I’d have so much fun making a PB&J. In fact, I really like heating up bread over the skillet for some reason. Shortly after making this PB&J, I made a grilled cheese sandwich with the extra mozzarella cheese and it was awesome. Try it grilled! The extra 3 minutes will make the sammy much better.
