French toast is one of my favorite breakfast meals. Peanut butter and jelly is the ultimate comfort sandwich (unless you're allergic to nuts). I thought I'd find a way to combine the two into a flavorful breakfast that's fun for kids of all ages (and it's really filling).

Blue Ribbon Recipe

What's better than your classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich? It's this peanut butter and jelly French toast. Toasted crispy on the outside, warm peanut butter just oozes from the center. A homemade strawberry syrup complements the French toast adding a wonderfully fresh and sweet flavor. What a yummy breakfast... or dessert!

  • 2 dash
  • 2 dash
  • 1
    scant pinch of salt

How To Make peanut butter and jelly french toast

  • Eggs, milk, spices, and vanilla extract in a dish.
    Mix together all your French toast ingredients (except the bread and peanut butter).
  • Two pieces of bread crimped together with peanut butter spread inside.
    On four slices of wheat bread, spread peanut butter to desired thickness. Place the second slice of bread on top and trim off the crusts. Pinch all four sides together to form a "pillow" so peanut butter doesn't leak out while toasting.
  • Cooking French toast in a skillet.
    Dip into egg mixture on both sides, making sure bread absorbs it. Then place onto a preheated buttered frying pan. Toast on both sides, and repeat with the other sandwiches.
  • Blending strawberries and maple syrup in a blender.
    Reserving about 6 or 7 of the strawberries. Hull, wash, and place the rest of the strawberries in a blender with the maple syrup. Blend on high until all the berries are pureed.
  • Adding strawberry chunks into strawberry syrup.
    With the remainder of the strawberries, hull and slice (I use an egg slicer for uniform slices) then add the pureed strawberries.
  • Peanut butter and jelly on a plate with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.
    To serve, place two of the peanut butter sandwiches on a plate. Top with strawberry syrup and dust lightly with powdered sugar (if desired). Bon Appetit!
