Okay… This is all going to make sense once you finish reading this post. Really after you taste this, it doesn’t even have to make sense if you don’t want it to because it is so darn delicious.
I was watching “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” over the weekend and came across the most interesting peanut butter and Jelly sandwich I’ve ever seen. It was your classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich, dipped in french toast batter, coated in crushed frosted flakes and cooked as you would french toast… AMAZING.
Seriously just try it. I’ve posted the recipe below. Let me know what you think! Enjoy!
2 Slices of bread
1 tbsp Jelly (i prefer strawberry)
1 tbsp almond butter (I can’t eat peanuts, I break out… BAD… yet my favorite chocolate bar is a reese’s cup, naturally)
splash of milk
cinnamon and nutmeg to taste
1/2 cup crushed frosted flakes
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
You simply make the nut butter and jelly sandwich as you would normally. In a small bowl combine the egg, spices and splash of milk to make your french toast batter. Dip the sandwich in the batter for about 5-10 seconds each side. Then, coat the battered sandwich with the crushed frosted flakes. Melt the butter in a skillet on medium high heat and grill the sandwich on each side until it’s a nice golden brown! Cut it into halves or quarters and enjoy with a nice giant glass of ice cold milk! YUM!
