Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Let’s celebrate National Peanut Day by elevating the childhood classic peanut butter and jelly.

Instead of grabbing peanut butter and jelly and spreading it on white bread, put the knife down and check out a few ways to glow up this American classic:

1.  Get spicy. Adding spice can help balance out the sweetness of the jelly. Add a drizzle of hot sauce, Sriracha, or even a jalapeno jelly instead of fruit jelly.

2. Beyond basic bread. Leave the white bread behind and venture over to the baking department. Sourdough, seven-grain, ciabatta, or rye add a different texture and taste. You can even use banana bread!

3. Go nuts. Peanut butter comes in so many amazing flavors these days. Pick up a jar of honey nut, butterscotch, chocolate, or cappuccino. Try alternative nut/seed butters like almond, cashew, and sunflower.

4. Heat it up. Our recipe today features a Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich. Grilling your PB&J maximizes the yummy gooeyness of the peanut butter and jelly, and it toasts the bread creating a crunchy exterior.

We have a lot of amazing recipes on our Cooked on Propane blog, including other peanut butter-based recipes like Peanut Butter Pancakes and Peanut Butter Pie. We hope you’ll check them out and report back if you tried a grilled peanut butter and jelly.
