Peanut Butter and Jam French Toast Sandwich

Tonight it was just the kids and I for dinner. My husband was off at the rehearsal for a friends wedding, that he's in. Instead of making a complicated dinner that they may or may not want to eat, I decided to just keep it simple and make something that I was sure to be eaten without a battle. 

First I thought I'd just make them a peanut butter and jam sandwich but, then I decided to switch it up a bit and turn it into a French Toast sandwich. Alright so, I didn't add any veggies or fruits but, making it into a French Toast sandwich did add some extra protein and made it more of a filling meal. Plus, we usually have breakfast for dinner on Friday nights so, I stuck with our tradition. 

Here's what you do:
•Make a peanut butter and jam sandwich. For us, that means..... creamy peanut butter, homemade strawberry jam and whole grain bread. Delicious. Simple. 

Make an egg batter for your sandwich:
•One Egg
•About a teaspoon of milk
•1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
•1 teaspoon vanilla
•A big sprinkle of cinnamon sugar

Pre-heat your pan on medium heat and then grease it well with butter. Dip both sides of the sandwich into the egg batter and coat completely. Cook both sides until well done. 
Very easy and my kids loved it!

Lastly, have you seen the Nate Berkus show? I'm not a big TV watcher at all so, I'm actually pretty oblivious to most things that are on TV. However, I randomly turned the TV on this evening and he had a crafting blogger on there. It was so fun to watch and I totally set my DVR up to tape his show. Also, Tori Spelling is starting a new show on TLC that focuses on real life crafters, competing against each other.
Oh, I'm so excited!!!!

  2. Fabulous idea. It takes out the sugary syrup and adds the healthy protein. Love it. Of course, I grew up with peanut butter on everything.

    2. Angela, Seriously....AMAZING. Ok, the picture is one thing. Knowing what's in it, is another. But tasting it is UNBELIEVABLE! I just made this, and OMG is it good. I'm loving something so simple and so tasty! Plus, I always use that day old bread for french toast anyways, so here's a way to make it a sandwich and to use up all that bread. Beautiful! I'd like to take a moment to thank Pinterest, without whose support, I would not have been able to find this recipe again, in the timely fashion in which I needed it!
