Not Your Mama’s PB&J: Frying Your Favorite Comfort Food

This entry is part 1 of 25 in the series Feed the Fam

Things have been crazy lately and when things get crazy our family loves comfort food. One of our favorite comfort foods is PB& J. Obviously, slapping a PB&J in front of everyone for dinner isn’t ideal so I decided to jazz up our favorite- by frying it up. Who doesn’t love all things fried? I served this sandwich up with some milk and some bananas (you can also put the bananas in your sandwich). Everyone was happy with these bad boys and they were filling!

INGREDIENTS

  • Peanut oil/Canola oil , for deep-frying
  • About 1/2 loaf of your favorite bread (thicker bread is better)
  • About 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • About 1/2 cup your favorite jelly/ jam (we used grape)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

  1. Create your PB & J sandwiches and set aside.IMG_5985
  2. Pour enough oil in a deep pot or deep-fryer to measure about 3 inches.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add 1/2 cup milk and vanilla and whisk until a smooth batter forms. If necessary, add more milk.
  5. Taking a sandwich dip it into your batter mixture and coat all sides evenly. Shake off any excess batter.
  6. Deep fry your battered sandwich (This doesn’t take very long, approx 1 -2 minutes per side).IMG_5994
  7. Once sandwich is fried, place on a paper towel to blot off any excess oil.
  8. Continue to batter and fry all sandwiches.
  9. Serve warm with milk.
