PB&J French Toast

January 6, 2008

Into the mouths of babes? It’s a marriage made in childhood heaven … peanut butter-and-jelly and French Toast! Sometimes the best ideas the simplest. SAM

3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup half-and-half
16 slices thin-sliced bread
1/2 cup grape jelly, or your choice
1/2 cup peanut butter
Confectioners’ sugar
Maple syrup, hot

In a shallow mixing bowl, beat together the eggs and half-and-half and pour into a 9 by 13-inch baking pan. Make 8 peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches and place them in the egg batter, turning twice to coat all sides. Lightly grease a griddle or skillet and heat to medium-high. Fry the sandwiches about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with confectioners’ sugar and hot syrup.
Makes 8 servings.
