tasty sandwich is a reliable standby when we are in a hurry for comforting food.
We love making these
sandwiches on nights when we don’t want anything heavy, but want something fast, delicious and comforting.
Glenn used to make these for me all the time when I was taking classes at night after working all day. I
would come home late in the evening and he would whip one of these gooey babies up for my dinner. Thanks,
first remember my Mom making these sandwiches for us when we were little. I don’t know of anyone else who makes
these, but we were hooked on them. They are made just like grilled cheese sandwiches, except you use peanut butter
instead of cheese. Pair it with a handful of chips, some apple slices, and a glass of milk and you have a perfectly
Butter or margarine,
room temperature so it can be spread
Peanut butter, either
creamy or crunchy
1.Preheat a heavy skillet on the stove on
2.Spread two slices of bread with butter on
one side of each slice. Place buttered sides together to avoid smearing butter over counters and
hands as you prepare the rest of the sandwich.
3.Spread back of top slice of bread with a
layer of peanut butter.
4.Pick up the sandwich, leaving the second
piece of bread off for the moment and set the sandwich with the buttered side down in the warmed
skillet. Place the bread buttered side up on top of the sandwich in the pan.

Put second peice of buttered bread on top with butter side
5.When first side of sandwich is lightly
browned, carefully flip the sandwich over with other buttered side down on skillet
6.When second side is browned to your
preferred level, remove sandwich from the pan and place on a plate. You may want to let the
sandwich cool slightly so the peanut butter does not ooze out and burn you or run down your
chin. Once slightly cool (don’t worry, the peanut butter stays warm for a few minutes), slice
the sandwich diagonally in half, gather several napkins and get ready for a treat.
