Made for Pick a Chef Spring 2008. I didn't expect this to be so incredible; both the PB and J change composition entirely - you need to try it to see how good it is! I used sprouted whole grain bread and cut it with a cookie cutter for fun. I will warn you that this makes a big mess-I have the panini maker with the plates that go in the dishwasher but if you don't, get ready for some scrubbing! Highly recommended!
This is a yummy idea! I love paninis and I love pb&j so it was a great combo. I put too much peanut butter on mine though and it oozed everywhere, but it was still delicious!
This was a really interesting twist on traditional PB&J. I took a little bit of liberty with the recipe- I used cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread (a whole grain bread made from sprouted grains), real peanut butter, as suggested (I use organic because peanuts are the crop most highly sprayed with pesticides) and used raspberry preserves rather than grape jelly. I actually made this in my George Foreman grill and it worked very well. A tasty sandwich- gooey, warm peanut butter and jelly on the inside with a crisp crust. Yum! Now, I have to admit- I don't usually like PB&Js or jelly at all for that matter... but this heated the jelly and it was GOOD! Thanks for the recipe, I'll try this again!
