Keto Peanut Butter & Jelly Grilles Cheese Sandwich Recipe
- 2 slices of keto bread
- 1-2 tablespoons smooth natural peanut butter
- 1-2 tablespoons keto chia jam (*to your taste)
- Brie cheese, thinly sliced
- 2 teaspoons unsalted butter, divided
Start by spreading the peanut butter on one side of the bread, then the jelly on the other. Top the jelly side with sliced brie, edge to edge.
Melt half the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat, and add the jelly and brie slice of bread to the skillet, jelly and brie side up. Then place the peanut butter slice on top of the jelly/brie slice, with the peanut butter side down.
Once the one side is grilled to a medium brown, remove the sandwich, add the remaining butter and flip the sandwich to grill the other side until brown. Serve hot and melty for best results.
Did you go for it? Did you make one of this peanut butter and jelly grilled cheese sandwiches? I understand that sharp white cheddar can also work well, so it might be worth experimenting with different kinds of cheese and jams.
