    A peanut butter and jelly (or jam) sandwich is one of the most famous sandwiches in the world following second to the Ham sandwich. PB&J includes one or more layers of peanut butter and one or more layers of either jelly or jam on bread. The sandwich is quite common and popular in North America, especially for children; a 2002 survey showed the average American will have eaten 1,500 of these sandwiches before high school graduation which is astounding as a statistic even if the child would consume almost over 250 sandwiches a year.

    There are several variations on the sandwich. For example, honey or sliced fruit can be substituted for the jelly component. On the flip side, the popularity of almond butter has inspired some aficionados to transition to “almond butter and jelly” (AB&J) sandwiches. It is sold commercially in restaurants that specialize in peanut butter sandwiches, such as Peanut Butter & Co.

    How to Make Classic PB&J Sandwich

    1. Spread the butter on one side of each slice of bread evenly and lightly not enough to make applying the rest of the ingredients but just enough to soak through the bread when it is heated.
    2. Flip both the buttered slices so the un buttered side is exposed and facing upwards
    3. Now spread the peanut butter on one slice of bread, and jelly on the other.
    4. After that now place one slice, buttered side down on the griddle and maintain uniform low heat.
    5. Top with other slice, so that peanut butter and jelly are in the middle and smash together to mix and form an explosion of jelly and peanut buttery flavor.
    6. Cook for 4 minutes on each side with low heat to ensure the peanut butter is warm and reaches the molten phase, or until the bread has completely gone golden brown, and heated through.
    7. The butter on the lower end of the bread would make sure they do not get burnt so heat excessively if needed to brown the bread evenly.
    8. Then slice up those sandwiches and slice diagonally and sit back with your little slice of heaven.
