The perfect combination of flavors and textures
French toast is an easy recipe packed with flavor that is perfect for breakfast. We boost it to the next level by adding peanut butter and jelly. It’s got that crispy exterior of bread fried in butter, but on the inside it is soft and gooey.
Easy to make recipe for the whole family
This recipe combines two very simple recipes that are probably already a staple in your family’s diet: French Toast and Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches. If you can make either one, you’re going to be fine preparing this delicious meal.
What’s extra awesome is that French Toast can be eaten at anytime during the day and will not take too long to prepare. The following recipe is for two servings of French toast.
Use your favorite bread, jelly, and peanut butter!
This recipe can be as simple as you’d like it with cheap store-brand ingredients, and it will still taste great. But if you want to elevate it to the next level, try using brioche instead of white bread, cashew or almond butter instead of peanut butter, and your favorite gourmet jam instead of regular jelly.
The options are really endless.
Perfect breakfast or anytime snack that is quick to make
As mentioned, this is a meal you can eat any time of day. It’s a great breakfast that is easy enough for a weekday. But it also works as a great “Breakfast for Dinner” option, and it is basically dinner and dessert at once!
This recipe makes enough for two servings, but you can bump up the ingredients to make enough for everyone.
Begin by combining egg, cream, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl to create your custard.
Create two peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by spreading peanut butter on two slices of bread and jelly on the other two, then combine.
Dip your PB & J sandwiches into your custard so the bread soaks up the mixture.
Melt butter on a hot griddle or frying pan. Then place your soaked sandwiches onto the griddle, letting them brown on one side.
Flip the sandwiches over to brown on the other side.
Remove from heat and dust with powdered sugar, maple syrup, fresh fruit or Nutella.
Sit back and enjoy the delicious meal.
