This is excellent for fishing also :) Truth be told, I always make PB&J this way, but usually on storebought whole wheat. It's the butter (well, I actually use Smart Balance) that makes it special. My kids agree.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices home-made bread
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon jam or 1 tablespoon jelly


  1. Spread butter and peanut butter on one slice of the bread.
  2. On the other slice, spread jam or jelly (preferably home-made).
  3. Carefully place the two slices together (you don't want to "bruise" the jam).
  4. Gently slide sandwich into a plastic sandwich baggie; seal baggie; place in back hip pocket of hunting pants; forget about baggie in pants pocket.
  5. Spend morning hunting and sitting, stalking and sitting, and hiking & sitting.
  6. Sandwich should be ready to eat--check for doneness (ie., squashed flat, jam & peanut butter oozing out around edges).
  7. Sit down on a nearby stump, fallen log, stone outcropping and ENJOY!
