Peanut Butter & Jelly Grilled Cheese

Peanut Butter and Jelly Grilled Cheese

Don’t be scared… I know how weird this sounds.  Combining creamy peanut butter, sweet strawberry jam, crispy bacon and rich gouda cheese is definitely a high risk, high reward situation.  This is the ultimate sweet and salty treat!

Today I’m excited to bring you the 4th edition of Fashion Friday!  This sandwich was inspired by Maya of Charmingly Styled .  Maya is a fashion blogger in Chicago and co-founder of Midwest Bloggers.  She has also some of the most beautiful instagram pics that are sure to brighten your day (link below)!  I was immediately drawn to her weekend casual look, because it’s effortlessly stylish and reminds me of exploring Chicago for the day.  I just love spending the day in the city and am usually pretty worn out by the end of it.  After a busy weekend, I am usually craving a delicious, not too bad-for-me, easy dinner… enter peanut butter and jelly grilled cheese!


You will love this sandwich, because it is SO easy, but also brings a unique sweet & salty comfort food feeling!  The perfect end to a fun day exploring your city :)  Enjoy!
