You might think that making a toasted Peanut Butter and Jelly (or Jam for those of you who think jelly is a dessert) sandwich wouldn't require explanation. However, you might also be the sort of person who makes sandwiches out of *shudder* enriched white bread, so we can't really trust you now can we.
No. Obviously we can't.
Now I know what you're thinking, and yes, the PBJ is traditionally made using enriched white bread. However, we are not making a PBJ, we are making a TOASTED PBJ, and enriched white bread should not, under any circumstances, be toasted.
Step 1: Preparation
To start, you're going to need:
1) Bread- I use sliced sourdough, and I will take no responsibility if you use a different type of bread and it doesn't turn out well.
2) Peanut Butter- I use Skippy Super Chunk, but brand is probably not all that important. However, if you use creamy peanut butter it will be even messier than it is going to be already. Use at your own risk.
3) Jelly (or Jam)- I prefer strawberry.
5) Toaster Oven- Yes you really do need a toaster oven, it is an integral part of the process.
(I suppose you could use a blow torch or something similar, but it's very important that the peanut butter melts completely once you've applied it.)
