  • Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Spread peanut butter on unbuttered side of one slice of bread, and jelly on the other. Place one slice, buttered side down on the griddle. Top with other slice, so that peanut butter and jelly are in the middle. Cook for 4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown, and heated through.

Sheesh I've been cooking for over 20 years and finally found the ultimate recipe. Thank God for allrecipes.com. I just made a few changes of course. Instead of peanut butter I used sliced turkey breast. And instead of jelly I subsituted with cheddar cheese. But I wanted to stay with the original recipe so I spread the outside pieces with some butter and grilled it in a pan. When I took them off the pan and took a bite I knew I had to thank the brilliant cook who sent this wonderful recipe. Thank goodness you are a contributor to allrecipes. My family loved it and I'll be making this at least once a week. Read More

I made these thinking they would be terriffic - after all I love any type of grilled sandwich. I was disappointed. The peanut butter and jelly oozed out and warm jelly just didn't do it for me. Hubby was equally unimpressed. I guess I like the original plain old PB&J's. Thanks for posting anyway Chasity. Read More

Good sandwich that I've been making for years but to save calories and trans fat I use peanut butter that's made w/o hydrogenated oil (there isn't a difference in taste), and use one of those $10 sandwich makers. It doesn't require butter because it actually toasts the sandwich. It melts the peanut butter and jelly and tastes so good that you won't notice that there isn't any type of butter on the outside. And, you'll feel good because you saved yourself a few extra calories. Read More

Oh man, you guys are killin' me out there! When one is a peanut butter junkie and is also trying to diet, one should never, ever read any kind of review that contains this creamy indulgence. My first mistake was reading the recipe itself when I came across it. My second mistake was then reading the reviews! Up until then it was "do I, or don't I"? Thanks to "MC MA of 3's" review (the woman's a bad influence on me) I just couldn't resist! Before I knew it, I was in the kitchen grilling this baby up. I must say though, that after inhaling it, I felt absolutely no remorse! Chastity, I don't know whether to thank you or not for submitting this amazing little sandwich recipe because now I know I'll never get back to my diet! DELICIOUS!!!! Read More

Don't know why I took a Home Ec course in 7th grade in 1965...guess I wanted something easy just for the credit as I had been cooking and baking for several years already and didn't need this basic instruction. So the class, as I suspected, was boring (but fun) for me. We made some pretty basic recipes, none of them particularly memorable. But it speaks volumes that this simple twist on a basic PB&J sandwich left such an impression on me after all these years. I will NEVER forget that first bite... As with many other things in life, the more simple things are often the best. Read More

Love it!! The only thing my son can cook and he made this JUST yesterday. I had to laugh at the reviewer who subbed the peanut butter with turkey and the jelly with cheese. That was the funniest review I've ever read. Read More

I'm an admitted peanut butter addict and love to find new ways to eat the stuff and boy was this good! Sometimes the simplest things in life turn out to be some of the best and this was no exception. If you love peanut butter and jelly sanwiches give this a try you'll be glad you did. Definitely have an ice cold glass of milk handy... Read More

Are you kidding me?? Who thinks of recipes like this? I never in a million years would have thought of toasting my PBJ sandwich. This was absolutely delicious with PB just dripping right out of it! I'm not sure I could ever eat a regular one again! Read More

A good way to turn "same ol'" into "sinful." I highly recommend using tablespoons instead of teaspoons for the measurements of peanut butter and jelly. If you're watching fat intake (if you are, why are you eating peanut butter anyway?), you can get good results by leaving out the butter and grill and just popping the sandwich into a toaster oven.
