You guessed it… peanut butter, jelly, and bread. BUT… you also want to get the butter out too, so you can fry the outside of the bread and give it that crunch, delicious flavor!
How to Make a Fried Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich
1. Make a regular peanut butter and jelly.
2. Butter each side of the sandwich. (I usually butter one side, lay the buttered side down in the hot skillet, and then butter the top. Or you’ll have messy hands if you try to butter both sides while holding it.)
3. Wait until the bottom of the sandwich is golden brown, and then flip. When that side is golden brown… you guessed it. It’s done.
Sometimes for an extra special touch, I’ll sprinkle powdered sugar on it!
