Fried Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

Sounds strange, but kids love it. I made these for my kids all the time. Let it cool slightly before giving to younger children as the jelly can get hot.


  1. Make a traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
  2. Spread butter on one side.
  3. Melt 1 teaspoon butter in small frying pan.
  4. Put unbuttered side in pan.
  5. Continue as if making a grilled cheese sandwich.

So delicious, and easy! These are the best way to eat PB&Js!

This is my favorite way to have PB&J! I'm very glad to see that someone posted it. Melted peanut butter and a crunchy crust is the best of both worlds to me! It makes a good breakfast when I'm feeling indulgent.
