Grilled Cheese with PB&J

No, you didn’t read incorrectly. No, PB&J is not an acronym for something else. This is actually a recipe for grilled cheese sandwiches with peanut butter and jelly.

First reaction: gross. Second reaction: gross. Third reaction: maybe it could be? … no, it can’t. Well, at least that was how I reacted. My friend who was my entrymate freshman year, my suitemate sophomore and junior year and my roommate senior year swore it was good. And always meant to make some for me and our other friends to try. Of course we never got around to this (or the W-town pub crawl for that matter), so one day when I was home alone and bored, I decided to try it out.

Verdict: not as gross as I imagined, but definitely not something I would eat again. Surprisingly enough, the peanut butter and cheese combination was not bad… it was the addition of jelly that caused the taste to make an odd turn.

2 slices bread (white or wheat)
2 slices cheese (I used American, but whatever you prefer for grilled cheese)
peanut butter
strawberry jam

Place cheese between slices of bread. Melt butter in a nonstick frying pan. When hot, grill the sandwich until the cheese is melted and both sides are golden brown.

Remove from heat and place on a plate. Top with peanut butter and jam.
