Peanut Butter & Jelly Panini Recipe

by on March 14, 2008

Yes, it’s actually a recipe for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! I know, I know – who needs a recipe for this? Think of it as a serving suggestion. The panini-version of PB&J is, of course, grilled so more than likely this sandwich is a little different from what mom put in your lunchbox. Start with buttered, crusty, seedy multigrain artisan bread, fill it with chunky peanut butter, fresh strawberries and strawberry preserves and grill it to golden perfection – it might be hard to go back to the old way. With PB&J, there really are no exact measurements – the right quantities are the ones that taste best to you! Want to see how this recipe was created? Check out “The Taste of Childhood”.

1 serving


butter, melted
2 slices seeded multi-grain bread, 1/2″ thick
chunky peanut butter
1 strawberry, sliced lengthwise into 1/8″ slices
strawberry preserves


Preheat the panini grill to medium-high (375 degrees).

Brush one side of each bread slice with melted butter. Flip both bread slices over, buttered side down. On one slice, spread a generous amount of peanut butter. Top with strawberry slices. On the other bread slice, spread preserves. Sandwich the two slices together, buttered sides out. Grill 3-4 minutes until golden grill marks appear on bread. Cut sandwich in half crosswise and enjoy!

This recipe will also be participating in the April 2008 Wholesome Lunchbox event on Coffee and Vanilla.
