You must remember as a kid having your PB and J sandwiches cut all nicely in triangular fashion? This is one of my favorites and it's a shame that I haven't made it in a long long time.
This makes a great lunch (or dinner for some) and with nearly limitless combinations of butters, breads, jellies and peanut butter spreads this has variety built in!

Step 1: Ingredients (preheat Broiler)
Two slices of bread per serving/person
Favorite Jelly or Jam
Butter (to spread over one side of each slice of bread)
Step 2: Prep and Cook
While you're broiler is doing it's thing....
Spread a thin even coat of butter on one side of each slice of bread.
Spread peanut butter on opposite side of one slice (per serving).
Spread Jelly/Jam on opposite side of other slice (per serving).
Combine slices and place about six inches from your broiler element.
Broil for 3-4 minutes and flip
Cook an additional 3-4 minutes or until you've reached your desired color.
Slice accordingly using your favorite method.
Step 3: Serving Suggestions
I'm almost sure you've done this before. PB and J goes best with a glass of cold cold milk or chocolate milk.
You could serve with a baked chip or even better, a sweet fresh fruit (grapes and other berries work well).
You theoretically could toast your bread... But this is not the same. Broiling gives it a nice crisp surface while keeping a soft interior. It's all about texture ;)
