This 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, Sweetie!

I 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 wonderful meal.

Grilled Peanut Butter Sandwich

Makes 1 sandwich





2      Slices white or wheat bread

         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 medium heat.

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.

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. Enjoy!
