grilled maple bacon peanut butter and jelly sammich

Two recipes in one week? Before you know it, this will be a food blog!

LOL. Just kidding. Mama ain’t got that kinda time.

Today’s post is thanks to the awesome folks over at Peanut Butter & Co. who sent me two complimentary jars of their Mighty Maple Peanut Butter and two jars of their Rip Roaring Raspberry Preserves. Take those two and what do you get?

A peanut butter and jelly sammich, of course!

Except. See. Well. That’s kind of boring, amirite?

Don’t get me wrong. I lurve me a good ol’ fashioned pb&j. But, y’know, we’re all adults here so I decided to go a little bit crazy.

That’s right.


True story, growing up we never really ate bacon. We were more sausage people, at least as far as I can recall. Over the past few months, however, I’ve rediscovered bacon and ohmygod. Like. I can’t even. Keep in mind I was vegetarian for almost seven years. I missed the whole Bacon Movement that happened with, well, basically bacon everything. And, not having really been a big bacon eater, I never quite got it.

I get it now.

(I partly blame BC. We were at brunch once at this restaurant with seriously bad ass bacon and he ordered it and offered me a piece. I don’t think it’s something I would have decided to seek on my own.)

So now we have peanut butter + jelly + bacon.

But then, well, I decided to get even crazier.


Just look at those beautiful, beautiful grill marks and that melted peanut butter and jelly. The maple flavor paired perfectly with the bacon and I actually made this for breakfast one day and it with the carbs and protein combination it made a fantastic start to my day.

Love from the ashes,
