fruit preserves, any flavor
I LOVE anything with peanut butter and could eat it by the spoonfuls (now if they could only come up with a great tasting fat free version). That being said I finally got around to trying this and I love it when someone takes a classic and puts a new twist on it. I love the crunchy texture you get from the addition of the toasted bread in the middle - great idea!
A neat twist on an old classic.
Oh, my god, SOOOO amazingly good! You have no idea what a difference the toasted slice of bread makes to the texture. I can only liken the crunchy/soft sensation to when you bite into a 100 Grand bar-- it's chewy with a crunch to it, and it makes the sandwich so much more satisfying to bite into! Use more jelly than you usually do on this, the peanut butter and toast combo makes it drier than a regular sandwich.
TERRIFIC!!! Made this for lunch today w/ thin white bread & everyone LOVED it! More substantial than a regular PBJ. The crunch adds something. It's so good, it's hard to put your finger on just what makes this sandwich so yummy!
I NEVER THOUGHT OF THIS!!! MY 14 MONTH OLD LOVES IT!!
If you are a peanut butter & jelly sandwich lover, you will love this! We have been making our sandwiches like this for quite some time now. Sometimes we toast the middle slice, and sometimes we do not, it's great either way. I have a tendency to make my pb&j sandwiches a little too "loaded", and the extra slice of bread helps break it up, but still alows me to use a lot peanut butter and preserves...LOL. I'm glad to see this recipe posted here :)
I actually didn't think this tasted TOO different from a regular PB&J. That said, this sandwich recipe is really good. A little time consuming, but I found it fun to make. The toasted slice does add nice texture.
A fun sandwich and, of course, very kid friendly! It has lots of possibilities too...you could use two different types of jelly or do a layer with more PB and then a layer of bananas.
