Upgrade Your PB And Js

Peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Everyone loves a traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Whether you are team peanut butter on both bread slices or peanut butter on one and jelly on the other, you are going to love these ideas from the Huffington Post to upgrade your PB&J!

Add Fruit

Using strawberry jelly? Why not add some fresh sliced strawberries, too? Fresh fruit will make your peanut butter and jelly sandwich feel like it was made in a boutique cafe.

Heat It Up

Have you ever had a grilled PB&J? Just like a nice grilled cheese sandwich, toasted bread adds an extra crunch and flavor to this basic sandwich.

Fry It Up

Fried Oreos were all the rage for a while. They are still delicious, but it is deep-fried PB&J’s time to shine.

French Toast PB&J

This combination makes so much sense. Why haven’t we thought of it yet? This recipe from Macaroni & Cheesecake is to die for!

  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of brown sugar
  • peanut butter
  • strawberry jelly
  • powdered sugar
  • syrup

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and whisk the egg, milk, cinnamon, and brown sugar together in a shallow bowl that your bread slices will fit into. Dredge each slice of bread on both sides. Add your dredged bread to the skillet and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Next, cook for an additional 2 minutes without flipping. One side of bread will be slightly under-done, but it will finish cooking later. Now, move the bread from the skillet to build your PB&J. On the fully cooked side of the bread, add your peanut butter to one piece of bread and your jelly to the other. Sandwich them together and return the constructed PB&J to the skillet on medium-low heat. Cook for one minute on each side and remove from heat. At last, cut in half and serve with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and drizzle of syrup.

No matter which way you upgrade your peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, you will surely love them and they will be a new family favorite!
