Grilled PB&J - The Perfect Marriage?

When I was little, I never liked PB&J sandwiches.  But I Loved grilled cheese sandwiches.  The warm, gooey cheese and crispy, buttery bread - for me, it's one of the ultimate comfort foods.  I remember making a grilled cheese sandwich almost every day after coming home from school, before going to swim practice.  I

It was only a few years ago that I started eating peanut butter and discovered the yummy simplicity of a good PB&J.  I don't eat them often, but when in a pinch for lunch or a quick snack, they work perfectly.

So when I saw this post in Everyday Occasions, I thought it was the perfect marriage of two great things.  I would have never thought of grilling a PB&J sandwich.  I mean the idea is so simple but so great!

I had to give it a try today when I came home for lunch to find our fridge nearly empty.  But one of the best things about this sandwich is that there are only 4 ingredients - bread, butter, peanut butter, and jelly.

And I have to say, the grilled version is waaay better!   The heat makes the peanut butter and jelly melt together deliciously.  I think this may become a new staple for my Friday lunches!
