Don't you DARE knock this genius creation until you've tried it.
I know what you're thinking.
"Peanut Butter & Jelly... grilled cheese??"
And it's heavenly.
Think about it... two of your favorite childhood sandwiches combined in the most delightful of ways to create a super gourmet, adult grilled cheese.
Plus, April is National Grilled Cheese month, so it's a time to celebrate and reinvent the beloved grilled cheese and take it to new heights.
First... let's talk about the jam. It's actually bacon jam. Soooo you're probably already half sold, right? Especially if you made it from the recipe I posted last week. (I've also head you can buy it at places like Whole Foods, but trust me... homemade is so ridiculously good).
Second... the PB. I happen to be addicted to this old fashioned, all natural PB made by this Teddie brand. (I mayyyyyy or may not have 2 spoonfuls like everyday). I say go for unsweetened.
Third... the cheese. I went with goat cheese, because I love how it pairs with bacon. I also heart cheese and am horrible at making decisions (especially in the cheese aisle), so I chose TWO types of goat cheese: a chevre, and a goat brie. (***DROOL***)
Finally... the bread. Go with your fave, but I found this rustic-looking half basket at the Whole Foods bakery and it was fab.
Butter your slices and flip them over on a plate. On one slice, spread peanut butter and the brie. On the other, spread the chevre and the bacon jam.
Slap them together and grill on each side until nicely browned and the cheese is properly melted.
And when I say "properly melted," I mean oozing out of every nook and cranny.
Have I sold you yet?
