Peanut Butter & Jelly: The Grilled Cheese Way

Two of the easiest sandwiches in the world to make: grilled cheese and PB&J. There are plenty of ways to personalize the traditional recipes, but otherwise they are what they are, which is pretty darn tasty.

However, have you ever thought about grilling your peanut butter and jelly sandwich? This could be just the technique to take this snack up a notch. Though you may have never tried it, this isn't a new phenomenon. In 2014, a Reddit user asked others what they thought of the idea, and it received rave reviews even then.

Recently, content creators on TikTok have been sharing their grilled PB&J sandwiches, devouring the ooey-gooey goodness.

"Why am I just now finding out that a grilled PB&J tastes a hundred times better than the standard version," says @chef_boydbrownthe3rd.

For the grilling, throw some butter on the outer layers of your bread and toast until it's golden brown.

Making a grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwich is pretty simple. However, there are many different ways to make it even better. You can add slices of banana or apple for some extra sweetness. Or add honey and syrup to give your sandwich a glaze.

Why not go a step even further and combine PB&J with a grilled cheese? TikTok content creator @feelgoodfoodie did just that!

In the video, @feelgoodfoodie says that peanut butter and jelly grilled cheese is not as weird as it sounds. Sweet, savory, and cheesy, it's the best of both worlds! She thinks of it like a cheeseboard with the bread, cheese, fruits, and nuts all packed into each bite.

You can even combine peanut butter and jam with brioche cheese and bacon to create the ultimate sweet and savory snack!
