This recipe was the result of moldy bread, I kid you not, and it’s the best thing to ever happen to PB&J

Ingredients:

  • Peanut Butter (Jif is the ONLY peanut butter, according to the hubby 🙂 )
  • Jelly, Jam, or Preserves (I used Smuckers Apricot Preserves this time)
  • Large flour tortilla
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 glass of ice cold milk

Utensils:

  • Small skillet
  • spatula
  • knife and or spoon (depending on your preferred spreading utensil)

1.) Put the peanut butter and the jam down the middle of the tortilla, I use about 2 Tbsp. of PB (recommended serving size) and balance the jam accordingly.

2.) Now comes the intricate 😉 part… the folding/sealing.

Fold the two sides in first

Then fold down the top

This part is IMPORTANT! To make the seal, spread the excess PB on the knife at the edge of the tortilla, and fold it up. Make sure it's sealed, or you have a hot mess on your hands.

3.) Heat the skillet to medium low heat, and melt the butter.

4.) Place the PB&J wrap flap side down (that’s important) and let it cook for a little under a minute (cook times vary, my stove gets real hot, real fast). Flip it with the spatula, and let the other side get nice and golden.

FLAP SIDE DOWN, PEOPLE!

Serve it up topped with powdered sugar as a dessert, or just enjoy it as a more gourmet version of the sandwich you loved as a kid. Pour a nice tall glass of milk, and enjoy!

Crispy on the outside, warm liquid peanut-buttery goodness on the inside... It's a pocket of deliciousness. And yes, that's a Detroit Redwings mug... I couldn't resist, Mom...

  • Notes: I haven’t found an easy/ non-messy way to eat this yet… we’ll work on it
  • raspberry jam is my husband’s all-time favorite, and is the most often used.
  • I’m working on an Elvis version, but it’s still too messy and probably causes congestive heart failure…
