Yesterday I was feeling a bit under the weather, so the idea of cooking something that required little more than putting two pieces of bread together and spreading peanut butter and jelly in the middle seemed impossible. Still craving something comforting to enjoy with my hot cup of tea, I decided that instead of the traditional PB&J, it needed a little twist. Out came the butter and sea salt and I got to work prepping my grilled PB&J sandwich. I probably don’t need to tell you that when you bring buttery crispy bread into the mix with melty sweet peanut butter, it is beyond delicious. This sandwich is perfect for those lazy day eats, but would also make for a playful breakfast, lunch, or even dessert if you swapped out the jelly for.. oh say, Nutella? Yum!
Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich
Makes 1 sandwich
I probably don’t need to give you exact instructions to prep you PB&J sandwich, so do that to your liking! Then, take a one tablespoon of softened butter and spread it on each outside part of the sandwich. Sprinkle a little sea salt on each side. Set a small frying pan to medium heat, let warm for a few minutes. Then place the sandwich in the pan and grill for five minutes on the first side, and 3-4 minutes on the second side until golden brown. Watch closely so it doesn’t burn. Cut in half and enjoy immediately!
