Happy National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day, kids. Honestly, I wouldn’t care at all about these silly food holidays if it weren’t for this blog. I just check them to help give me content ideas. Because let’s be real, every day is peanut butter and jelly day in my life. I survived off peanut butter as a child, as my grandmother loves to tell everyone. I was such a picky eater as a kid, I was especially hard to feed when we traveled together. But she knew if we could find a store and buy the makings of a PB&J, I’d be fine.

To this day, I eat PB&J on the reg. When I was a kid it was on white bread with grape jelly. My dad worked for Welch’s, so there was no shortage. These days, I’m partial to honey wheat toast and seedless raspberry jelly. But even here in Scotland, it’s gotta be that ultra smooth American peanut butter. Even if I have to pay extra, it’s too important to me to settle for anything less.

So to celebrate this arbitrary food holiday, I’ve mashed up two of my childhood favorites and made you Peanut Butter & Jelly French Toast. Breakfast is gonna be so fun. A PB&J is actually an ideal marriage of salty, sweet, and acidic, so even though we feel like kids, we’re actually working with a sophisticated flavor combintation. Or at least that’s what you can tell yourself if you’re feeling guilty about making this.

You can take or leave the maple syrup. You could also do chunky peanut butter if you’re a monster, I mean, if you prefer. Use whatever jam or jelly you love. Just make sure you have plenty of cold milk to drink with it. Everyone is gonna feel like a kid again.

How to make Peanut Butter & Jelly French Toast

This is so easy that not only will your kids love it, but you could let your kids make it. First off, make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Whatever you usually do to make a sandwich. There’s no big secret here. To turn it into French toast, whisk together egg, milk, and a tiny splash of vanilla extract in a shallow dish. I like to use my 8×8 baking pan. Mix it up real good, then dip your PB&J into the egg mixture on both sides. If your bread is fresh, I like just a quick dunk, but if you’re working with slightly staler bread, you can leave it in a few seconds to soak up the egginess.

Make sure you have a hot skillet ready, because we’re going straight in to fry things up. A little oil or butter won’t hurt anything, but if you’re using a non-stick skillet, you probably won’t even need it. Just let it cook for a few minutes on each side to brown up and cook the egg. Your peanut butter and jelly will also start to get a bit melty and gooey on the inside. Then all that’s left to do is serve this up with a shake of powdered sugar and maybe some maple syrup if you have a serious sweet tooth.

Make it magical

Raspberries are ruled by the Moon and Venus, so you know they have strong feminine energy. Use them in a love potion or to invoke fertility. I’ve seen some conflicting information on whether it’s safe to consume while pregnant, so always consult your doctor if you have any questions. A raspberry bush can also be planted to protect your home or business. (Source: Plentiful Earth)
