Kicked up PBJ

No matter how much of a foodie you are, sometimes you just need a good old Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich.  I love peanut butter and jelly, the classic flavors are a universal perfect combination.  But instead of just going through the motions, slapping the sandwich together, and sticking it straight into your lunch – here is a recipe to kick it up a notch! For this recipe I used blackberry preserves and organic peanut butter- but the choices here are endless (so feel free to substitute ingredients to suit your tastes)!  I also took a tip from Liz Lemon – and put a layer of crushed up potato chips on my sandwich! BAM!
 
Some other kicked up PBJ combo ideas: cashew butter and raspberry jam, coconut peanut butter (would HIGHLY recommend this!) and pineapple preserves, nutella and strawberry jam, almond butter and marshmallow fluff
 
Add some texture: Potato chips, bananas, toasted nuts, toasted coconut, mini chocolate chips
 
 
Ingredients:
 
2 slices wheat bread
2 Tblsp blackberry preserves
2 Tblsp organic peanut butter
Utz’s regular potato chips
1 Tblsp butter
 
To begin, Assemble you sandwich!  A layer of PB, a layer of J, and a handful of crushed chips for good measure to glue it all together!
 
 
Heat your skillet or panini press over medium low heat- you are simply toasting the bread not melting the sandwich ingredients. Add the butter to the skillet and allow to melt.  Add the sandwich. Flipping once, toast the bread on both sides.
 
 
Voila!!! Man, cooking is easy! 🙂
