Grilled Peanut Butter & Jelly Uncrustable

Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly Uncrustable

I’ve always been a sucker for nostalgic foods. Sometimes I just want to order off the kids menu and get chicken fingers or grilled cheese. It hurts my heart a little that I can’t. Grilled sandwiches of all kinds are my favorite. Especially grilled peanut butterΒ & jelly sandwiches.

When I was growing up, my mom would make my lunch pretty much every day. She always made it homemade and I was always jealous of the kids that got the prepackaged foods (because I was an unappreciative brat). I LOVED uncrustable sandwiches. To me, they were the best thing ever.

I decided to recreate the dream lunch of my childhood. Since I prefer my sandwiches toasty and melty, I grilled my uncrustable. The result was perfection and these sandwiches could not be easier to make. All you do is cut large circles in the bread:

Spoon a tablespoon full of peanut butter on one side and jelly on the other.

Smash the two pieces together, crimp the edges with a fork, butter both sides & grill! Easy peasy.

    1. Great question! You could spray the pan with some cooking oil and go without adding anything to the bread or you could put a little dab of coconut oil in the pan before grilling each side. Let me know if you end up trying it!!
