I love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. They are a great lunch staple in houses across the country. But what happens when you get a craving for a piece of your childhood (or your children are begging for a PB&J) and you don't have a traditional loaf of bread? Here are four ways to get you PB&J fix!
1. PB&J on Hawaiian Rolls
In my house a loaf of bread can sit long enough to get moldy, but not Kings Hawaiian rolls! These are great for pulled pork (and chicken) sliders, mini hamburgers and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Since the rolls are smaller than your average bread, you might need to make yourself two sandwiches.
2. PB&J on a Waffle
One of my Christmas presents this year was a dual waffle maker. THE BEST PRESENT EVER! This may just be because I am super excited over my new gift but not too long ago I had an extra waffle from the prior morning's breakfast and I made myself a PB&J sandwich with it.
Since the waffle is made of four parts anyway, you simply break the four pieces apart and make two sandwiches!
3. PB&J on a Tortilla
This is more of a PB&J wrap than it is a sandwich but it works just as well and tastes just as delicious! Throw a tortilla on a skillet to brown both sides then spread your peanut butter and jelly on it either by layering one on top of the other or doing half and half. Then roll it up!
If you are looking for a more traditional sandwich, you place a second tortilla on top and cut across or diagonally.
4. PB&J on Crackers
Spread peanut butter and jelly on an even number of crackers and either eat separately or combine them on top of each other.
Ritz crackers are a great option or if you are looking for a bit of a larger profile, saltine crackers work great too!
It doesn't matter how you eat PB&J the results are the same; a very happy tummy!
