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.
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,
