Grilled peanut butter and jelly

What is not to love about a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich? Unless you’re allergic to peanuts, the PB&J sandwich is a classic! And if your childhood was anything like mine, the Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich appeared quite often! This new twist on the childhood favorite is so simple, yet the grilling aspect completely changes the sandwich.

I have to be honest. I feel a little silly posting a “recipe” for something as simple as this, so really, just consider it an idea. Anyone can make a Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich and there really is no recipe! You just make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich as you normally would, except butter the outsides of the bread like you would a grilled cheese sandwich. Heat a griddle or skillet to medium low heat and cook the sandwich until one side is browned, flip, and do the same to the other side. Easy peasy and SO tasty!

If you’re looking for a way to add a little excitement to your Monday afternoon lunch, give this a shot! You will love it, the kids will love it… pretty much everyone will love it! :) And if you’re looking for a few other ways to incorporate the creamy goodness, that is peanut butter, in to your diet, may I suggest Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars, Peanut Butter Granola Balls, Peanut Butter Squares, or Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes? Just a couple of faves around here where we are crazy for peanut butter!

*Tip – Allow the sandwich to cool for a couple of minutes before eating it. The peanut butter and jelly get quite hot during the grilling process!
