Anyone who knows me…knows that I love, love, love peanut butter. And although I have tried almond butter, it is still just not quite the same flavor-wise to me. I can eat peanut butter straight from the jar, on bread, in a smoothie, with an apple, on a banana, on celery…you get the point.

My favorite part about peanut butter is how convenient it is. I can just grab it out of the pantry and make a meal that will leave me satisfied for quite a while.

Two sandwiches that have become constant staples in my household is a grilled cheese and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. So today while making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich I decided to try something different and grill it…Thus grilled peanut butter and jelly.

I must say that for my first time trying this it was really easy to prepare. It was so easy to make that I did not have to follow any recipe. I just used the same technique I use to make a grilled cheese sandwich.

The warmth and crisp of the bread made the peanut butter melt into soft gooey-ness and the combination of butter and being grilled added another layer of flavor to this already great sandwich.
