Good sandwich that I've been making for years but to save calories and trans fat I use peanut butter that's made w/o hydrogenated oil (there isn't a difference in taste), and use one of those $10 sandwich makers. It doesn't require butter because it actually toasts the sandwich. It melts the peanut butter and jelly and tastes so good that you won't notice that there isn't any type of butter on the outside. And, you'll feel good because you saved yourself a few extra calories.
I made these thinking they would be terriffic - after all, I love any type of grilled sandwich. I was disappointed. The peanut butter and jelly oozed out and warm jelly just didn't do it for me. Hubby was equally unimpressed. I guess I like the original plain old PB&J's. Thanks for posting anyway, Chasity.
Sheesh I've been cooking for over 20 years and finally found the ultimate recipe. Thank God for allrecipes.com. I just made a few changes of course. Instead of peanut butter I used sliced turkey breast. And instead of jelly I subsituted with cheddar cheese. But I wanted to stay with the original recipe so I spread the outside pieces with some butter and grilled it in a pan. When I took them off the pan and took a bite, I knew I had to thank the brilliant cook who sent this wonderful recipe. Thank goodness you are a contributor to allrecipes. My family loved it and I'll be making this at least once a week.
Oh man, you guys are killin' me out there! When one is a peanut butter junkie and is also trying to diet, one should never, ever read any kind of review that contains this creamy indulgence. My first mistake was reading the recipe itself when I came across it. My second mistake was then reading the reviews! Up until then it was "do I, or don't I"? Thanks to "MC MA of 3's" review (the woman's a bad influence on me) I just couldn't resist! Before I knew it, I was in the kitchen grilling this baby up. I must say though, that after inhaling it, I felt absolutely no remorse! Chastity, I don't know whether to thank you or not for submitting this amazing little sandwich recipe because now I know I'll never get back to my diet! DELICIOUS!!!!
Don't know why I took a Home Ec course in 7th grade in 1965...guess I wanted something easy just for the credit as I had been cooking and baking for several years already and didn't need this basic instruction. So the class, as I suspected, was boring (but fun) for me. We made some pretty basic recipes, none of them particularly memorable. But it speaks volumes that this simple twist on a basic PB&J sandwich left such an impression on me after all these years. I will NEVER forget that first bite... As with many other things in life, the more simple things are often the best.
I'm an admitted peanut butter addict and love to find new ways to eat the stuff and boy was this good! Sometimes the simplest things in life turn out to be some of the best and this was no exception. If you love peanut butter and jelly sanwiches give this a try, you'll be glad you did. Definitely have an ice cold glass of milk handy...
This is good but it's only a hot peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
This was pretty yummy, but I used my foreman and it all fell apart on me :( Next time I will try on a griddle.
