Had I known about grilled PB&Js growing up, my mother would have heard nothing but requests for it - especially since she wasn't a great cook so PB&Js and grilled cheeses were already a staple in our diets. Sorry mom, but you know it's true.

It doesn't even matter what kind of jelly you prefer (how I ended up with a boyfriend who prefers strawberry jelly over grape, I'll never know), as long as you know how to make a grilled cheese, you'll know how to make a grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Just whip up your sandwiches to your liking.

Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat before adding the sandwich.

Here's a protip: right before you flip the sandwich, add another tablespoon of butter to the pan to ensure each side is equally crispy! Grill until golden brown and serve immediately - but be careful if handing over to a child, the insides will be hot!
