Makes 4 servings
- 8 frozen plain or whole-grain toaster waffles, unthawed
- Grape jelly
- Peanut butter
- 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
Place 4 of the waffles on a work surface. Spread with the jelly and peanut butter. Top with the remaining waffles. Spread the top of each sandwich with ½ Tbsp of the butter. Melt the remaining butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Place the sandwiches in the skillet, buttered side up. Cook, pressing with the back of the spatula and turning occasionally, until the waffles are golden, 3-4 minutes per side.
Here’s one of the other variations of the Ham-and-Cheese Waffle Sandwich just like I promised. From Real Simple’s Meals Made Easy special edition, it’s a new take on good old fashioned PB & J! It really is quite a tastey new twist on and old favorite. It make an excellent snack or lite bite to each for a quick lunch!
I have peanut buettr on toast for breakfast almost every day, lately! And PB&J on the made with whole grain Eggos definitely makes it into the rotation now and again but not often, since it makes for a more carby breakfast than I reall need. (My insulin needs are higher in the mornings, so I try and keep breakfast under 20 carbs.) And since I just can’t talk abotu food without relating it to health these days:A slice of toast + peanut buettr is pretty healthy, if you stick with the whole wheat and natural stuff. Fiber, healthy fat, protien As someone who gets to watch exactly what foods do to blood sugar, I can tell you that it doesn’t make my sugar spike and drop like some of my other favored breakfasts. That is, unless I also have milk and fail to time my insulin well enough lactose is in and out of your system in a flash!(Oh, and I’m also occasionally offered peanut buettr when I order waffles or pancakes in diners, so it must not be that uncommon for breakfast.)
