I so wish I’d known about this earlier. I wish I had bread in the house right now so I could make it again.
I’m happy you’re reading this, because that probably means you haven’t tried it yet and that you will soon.
There is something so comforting about peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. One bite and you’re enveloped with the feeling that all is well in the world, there’s nothing to worry about. There’s nothing else you should be doing except eating this incredibly delicious sandwich.
If you thought regular pb&j’s were good, wait til you try this.
I’m so addicted.
2 slices of bread (I’m a whole wheat girl, but to each their own)
Peanut butter (holy smokes, fresh stuff out of the machine at the co-op will blow your mind)
Jam or jelly of your choice (I used strawberry jam that I made myself last summer, heavenly)
Butter each slice of bread on one side. I make this sandwich on a George Foreman grill, but you could do it on a stove top a la grilled cheese, too.
Put one slice, butter side down, on the grill.
Spread peanut butter, then jam, on the toast. Add the second slice, butter facing up. If you’re using a panini press, close it.
Flip the sandwich a few times. Cook for about 3-5 minutes.
Cut your favorite way. I like triangles, but they really scare my college roomie, Kari…
Devour with a drink of your choice. Frosty soymilk is the bomb.
- The plate in this photo was a bridal shower gift from my friend, Laura. It has the names of various meats written on it French. I think it’s hilarious and adore her.
- I prefer creamy peanut butter to chunky. What about you?
- For the longest time, I thought “FTW” meant “F*#& The World”. As in, “FTW, this is awesome and the only thing that matters.” For those of you that don’t know, it is supposed to mean “For The Win.” This is cool, but not as cool as “F*#& The World.” So, every time I see “FTW”, I think “F The World” and I do a little fist-pump in my head.
Peace out, yo. I’m off to buy some bread so I can eat this now.
