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.

BACON.

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.

GO BIG OR GO HOME, AMIRITE? LOL

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,
