Who doesn’t love a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich? It is a nostalgic taste that is always welcome in my mouth. I don’t think to make it very often, but I’m always happy when I make one for myself. This grown-up peanut butter and jelly sandwich takes your traditional PB&J to a whole new level.
Making this version of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is super easy. However, it elevates this childhood favorite and becomes a special meal for both kids and adults. I think it would be fun to have a party with my adult friends and have everyone bring their favorite nostalgic childhood treat elevated to an adult version. It would be so interesting to see what people created. Maybe I’ll do that for my next game night.
Ingredients to Make Grown-Up Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
- Favorite Bread – I chose a farm style bread, but this could easily become healthier with a whole grain option. I often like the nuttiness added with a bread that has more seeds and grains.
- Peanut Butter
Directions to Make Grown-Up Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
There are really no measurements when making your grown-up peanut butter and jelly. The directions are simple. It’s just like making a normal peanut butter and jelly, but you will be toasting it and adding bacon. Just slather on some peanut butter to one piece of bread. After cooking your bacon to desired crispness, add 3-4 slices of bacon on top of the peanut butter. On the other slice of bread, add your jelly and place on top. Butter both sides of the outer side of your sandwich and toast it to desired level in a pan or on a griddle. I like a golden brown toasted sandwich.
