How do you….?

Make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich?

There is no right or wrong way, it’s really a matter of personal preference, I have found. This has recently been a discussion in my family, which started when my oldest son’s friend posted the following on my son’s FB page:

I put peanut butter and jelly on the same slice of bread.

It took no time at all for the comments to filter in, all against this obscure way of making a PB&J sandwich. This is actually how my son, my mom and myself make the sandwich. But my daughter and middle son make it by putting the peanut butter and jelly on separate slices. So with that I realized it’s not a family thing, it’s really a personal thing. I went on to explain the logic for the way I make it, that way you have an empty slice where you can actually wipe your knife clean on that slice of bread, which my mom of course agreed with. Otherwise, I come across a knife that is loaded with peanut butter in the sink to be washed….ahhhh…so that’s why that happens. Anniehow…

With the rise in peanut allergies, it would be interesting to see how that weighs in, so I added that in to my little poll. Funny how when I was a little kid, no one was allergic to peanuts, but it’s a real serious thing now.

So chime in and cast your vote, let me know how you make yours, and if I get enough responses, I’ll analyze the data and post the results.

    • 😀 I’ll have to show my kids that trick, wiping the excess on the corner of the bread, if they must make it that way, LOL.

      Ooops…first time doing a poll, the results weren’t supposed to show…that’s confidential data right there, LOL.


    • I forgot to mention that I actually like mine grilled. Butter the outside and throw it on a skillet, and the peanut butter and jelly are all melty, the bread is buttery and toasted!! My dad used to make a triple decker, by adding a piece of buttered bread to his sandwich. That’s pretty good too…a lot of bread, but it adds to that salty sweet combo.


I appreciate your go ahead and leave one...don't be shy :-) (comments show up once I approve them).
