It Ain't Food Network......But They Eat It, Tuesday!

This really shouldn't be called a recipe. But I thought I would share it with you anyway. Most people that I talk to have never heard of eating this, but we grew up on this at my house!

Grilled PB&J

Peanut Butter
Jelly, Jam or Preserves of your choice

This is just like making a grilled cheese sandwich. Except leave off the cheese, because that would be nasty. Make yourself a PB&J like you normally would. Now, I hope you do know that there are ways to make a PB&J and ways NOT to make a PB&J. You should always put the peanut butter on one side and the jelly on the other. And spread it to the edges....not just in the middle. I have seen people before put the peanut butter and the jelly on the same slice of bread, and let me just tell ya now, that is just plain wrong. Or mix it together and then spread it on. OH the horror! Smack them together and put butter on the top. Put it in a skillet, butter side down, and then butter the side that is up. Grill it until it is the color you like, then flip.

If you are making this for your kid and you get it too done on one side, don't brown the second side so dark and you can serve that side up and they will never know! Works every time!

This sandwich is so ooey gooey good. It makes me feel bad for Brayden that he is allergic to peanut butter. It is almost as good as a goop sandwich. We may have to do that one next week!

Some other pointers:

- Be mindful that the insides get really hot, much hotter than grilled cheese gets. You'll want to blow on the first few bites.

- The peanut butter and jelly get really runny. Forks are the tidiest way to eat them, but if you absolutely must use your fingers, watch out for the really hot and runny insides.
