Two kid favorites combined into one delicious treat. I put this together on a whim for the kids one day and they LOVED it. I guess I'm a kid at heart, because I thought it was pretty great too!

This is a PB & J lovers dream. The sandwich is like stuffed french toast with your favorite jelly. The french toast is really good alone, but the peanut butter syrup sends it over the top. We may have needed to add a bit more half and half because our syrup didn't get too thin so we just spread it on top. All warm and gooey, this is so good. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
