Sounds Crazy Right?
Yes I know when you hear fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich you think that sounds crazy right? The first time I heard it I thought I was. It was probably over 25 years ago at a friends house and it’s been a long time since I made them. I recently talked to her and she said I could put them on her. So I thought this would be a perfect day for it. My family loved them! I made them for awhile but as they got older they were never home. But now they are back baby!
Picking Out Ingredients
This could be the hardest part because of all the choices there are in jams and jellies. But once you get past that, it’s smooth sailing.
Since most of us grew up eating pbj’s (peanut butter and jelly) sandwiches all of our lives we all have a favorite. Since I was making it for my granddaughter I let her pick. I have several different kinds grape, strawberry, cherry, apricot, apple butter and raspberry which is my favorite. So today she went with the traditional strawberry. As far as peanut butter I am and always have been a Jiff Peanut Butter girl. Then a couple slices of bread and butter for the outside to brown the bread.
Making the Sandwich
These are so easy and quick to make and you probably have everything on hand. Butter the first side of one slice of bread then on the second piece of bread put peanut butter on it, then your jelly. Put the sliced piece of bread that had the butter on it and place it on top of the jelly and place it butter side down on the pan. Then place the other piece of bread on top and butter it or butter before you put it on. The skillet had not been turned on yet. Make sure you get the butter crust to crust is a must ( in the words of Jeff Mauro). Turn it on medium to high heat and cook for about 3 minutes on each side to your preferred doneness. Then sit back and enjoy with your favorite chips and some fruit salad.
