After years of experimentation, I have finally come upon the best tasting (and healthiest) way to satisfy a PB&J craving AND keep my kids healthy. Don't leave out the secret ingredient or it won't be the same. I guessimating the measurements so feel free to adjust to your taste.
- Spread a half teaspoon of butter on each slice of bread.
- Spread one slice with peanut butter.
- Swirl jam into peanut butter.
- Cover with other slice of bread.
- Devour with a glass of milk!
I had heard of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches but I never tried to make one because I felt it seemed too complicated for me to try to make. The sandwich turned out tasting okay but it was very messy. I am thinking maybe I put the sandwich together wrong. Was the peanut butter and jelly supposed to be on the outside of the bread? There was no picture so I assumed it was.
Where is the milk supposed to be used? The recipe was unclear and I tried mixing the other ingredients in the milk and it just became a soggy mess. It may have made a good milkshake but it just ended up as a mop of milk and bread with bits of jelly and peanut butter swirling around on my plate.
I did not have peanut butter in the pantry so I used smashed peanuts with a tablespoon of butter instead. Unfortunately my sandwich was average.. what type of milk should be used? The recipe didn't specify so I bought skim, full fat, longlife and soy? don't think I will be making this again, I was looking forward to this recipe.
