B&PJ’s PB&J Offers Delightful Taste

Try twist on traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich

Challah bread and apricot jelly were used to make this sandwich, but you can use whatever type you’d like.

In the final episode of “Good Luck Charlie,” PJ Duncan creates a food truck that sells peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Him and his dad, Bob Duncan name the food truck “B&PJ’s PB&J”.

The show never explicitly gives any type of recipe, but there is a YouTube video of Jason Dolley, the actor who plays PJ, recreating the infamous sandwich. They take the traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich and add a twist by turning the bread into french toast.

Although I am not the biggest fan of peanut butter or jelly the sandwich was much better than I expected. The peanut butter melted from the hot french toast and this was a delicious twist on your average peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

I highly recommend this dish to anyone who loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but also to anyone who doesn’t particularly enjoy them, like me. This sandwich was definitely a step out of my comfort zone but well worth the end result.
