Fried Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich

Have you ever tried that? Yesterday, while we were making fry pies, Renita and I were talking about quick lunches or something (I forget exactly how we got on the subject) and she said that her son likes his pb&j sandwiches fried, like a grilled cheese sandwich. I had never heard of it, so I decided I’d have to try it.

Fast-forward to a couple hours later… I got home around 1:00 p.m. and hadn’t had lunch yet, so I was staring in the fridge when suddenly I remembered the fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. So, I made 2, one for me and one for Tiffany (Lexi was at school). Then, after eating that one, I made another one for me. They are good! The peanut butter gets all warm and melty and gooey and the sandwich is crispy to bite into. It just kinda bumps plain ol’ peanut butter and jelly sandwiches up a level. 😉

So, here you go, no recipe, just the process in pictures…

Grilled cheese and tomato soup…

Yup, I don’t use a frying pan for this type of thing, mostly which is grilled cheese sandwiches. And that reminds me of this post, which was written on my old blog before I started Kitchen Scrapbook. And when the posts were transferred to Kitchen Scrapbook, the comments didn’t come with them, so here are a couple other ideas that people had for doing right on a smooth top burner and skipping the frying pan: warm tortillas up, make quesadillas, and someone knew of someone who fries onions and sausage right on the burner! I haven’t tried that one! Someone also said this, “Something to try next time you have tomato soup.  Hard-boil 3 or 4 eggs, then grate or shred into soup just before serving.  Yummy!

I LOVE my smooth top stove! Not just for this, but because it’s easier to clean too.

    Oh we love these, well the girls and I do. Eric ate them last year when he was sick and can’t handle them anymore. :) I’ll have to make them again, kinda forgot about them.

    I just might have to try those!! Sounds interesting. That’s cool how you grill them on your stove top–that would be the only reason I would want one like that……….I like my gas stove!! :)

    Yep….I do this all the time….try it w/ bananas and not jelly….YUMMY!!!

    If we’re going to fry them and make them less healthful, why not make it peanut butter and chocolate? I bet that would be good!

    You must like to clean a stove more than I do…I did think though that you really arent supposed to do that to a smoothtop???

    Tried the fried p&b and jelly sandwich today. Was very good. Much better than eating it cold.

    Still frying pb&j? 😀 Just had to ask! :)

    Msclovy, I actually never asked anyone if it was ok to do that. Seems like you shouldn’t, but I’ve had my stove for 11 1/2 years and the burners still clean up good as new!

    Shannon, ha, yeah, the loaf of bread is about gone now, so we’ll switch to something else soon. 😉

    Egg in soup? Well after going to a certain Bible school establishment a certain year (namely the one you came engaged) I just can’t handle eggs in soup. Too much like breakfast leftovers in my lunch. ugh.

    My daughter and son just loved these. They thought I was crazy at first when I suggested it. Now they won’t eat them cold anymore. Thanks!
