Christmas time is here! Which means busy schedules, house guests, and lots of big meals planned! We know how much time it is taking you to plan that big family holiday meal that’s coming up ….sometimes you need an easy, crowd pleasing recipe for those nights surrounding the big dinner nights. Because let’s face it, one big dinner is enough to plan and budget for without having to worry about the rest of the week!
Our solution to those nights where creating a big meal is just not an option, is a classic with a twist. Everyone loves a good ‘ole fashion PB&J. Our play on this family favorite uses sliced Brook Hollow farm strawberries instead of jam. We grill the sandwich in a Panini press to make it warm, crispy, and oh so sweet. It’s really a game changer if you ask our family! The best part is that even the little ones can help you prep this meal!
The ingredients are so simple…
Your favorite creamy peanut butter
Bread (we prefer a good hearty white bread for this recipe)
2 tbsp butter
Brook Hollow farm strawberries, sliced thin
Start by buttering the panini press on both sides (If you don’t have a panini press, simply use any skillet like you would a grilled cheese sandwich and butter the pan)
Mix the peanut butter (about 2 tbsp per sandwich) with the honey (about 1 tsp per sandwich)
Layer 1 slice of bread with the peanut butter and honey mixture
Layer the sliced strawberries in a single layer across the peanut butter mixture
Close the sandwich with the other slice of bread and grill until golden brown on both sides
Cut in half, pour a glass of milk, and enjoy!
