Fun fact: I’m 31 years old and I could still eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches everyday.
It’s a true story. My mom always gave me peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to take to school for lunch growing up. It was the start of a beautiful friendship. I mean, it’s the essence of most of our childhoods. And I’ve made it a point to make sure that my girls love them too. Sometimes though, we get really crazy in our house and make super amazing PB&J sandwiches.
Introducing: Peanut Butter Jelly French Toast Sandwiches.
The idea was inspired by us needing something to take on a packed lunch and me half on accident, half on purpose making an abundance of french toast one morning for breakfast. Combine the two and voila! Peanut Butter Jelly French Toast Sandwiches.
We start with some Jif® Natural Creamy Peanut Butter Spread. Hey, it’s not just moms that are choosy, dads can be too.
Then, spread on some Smucker’s® Natural Strawberry Fruit Spread. Strawberry is important in the french toast game here. Your kids are always getting grape, and rightfully so, it’s delicious, but you really want strawberry here.
Now, close it all up, cut it in triangles (or squares or ovals or whatever your child is demanding on this particular day), throw it in a Ziploc® Sandwich Bags and BAM! You have an awesome breakfast or lunch option.Jif® Peanut butter, Smucker’s® Fruit Spreads and Ziploc® Sandwich Bags are the perfect pairings for Back to School lunches. These Peanut Butter Jelly French Toast sandwiches are great for back to school or any other day where you are in a rush. Ziploc® Sandwich Bags are great for portability making it easy for taking lunch to school. We’ve gotten in a habit of making up a ton of french toast, freezing the excess in an air tight container in our freezer and then using them when we really need to rush out of the house.
