The hubby saw a recipe for fried PBJs online from some county fair in Texas, he HAD to try it.
I was a little apprehensive because back in August we went to the OC fair and tried both the fried Twinkies and the fried snickers - both were a let down.
I am not a huge fan of fried foods, but let me just say that these were GOOD! I almost wanted another but they were a bit heavy! I don't even want to know the calorie & fat content.
Want to try it? Here is what you need:
1. A Loaf Of Fresh White Bread (we used whole grain)
2. Creamy Peanut Butter.
3. Grape/Strawberry/Raspberry Jelly (whatever you prefer)
4. White Sugar
5. 2 Cups of Flour (combine sugar & Flour)
6. Whole Milk
7. Large Eggs (combine milk & eggs)
8. Vegetable Oil (fill your fry pan with the oil)
For each deep fried sandwich you will want to trim the crusts from your bread and smear a thin coating of peanut butter on your bread. Add some jelly and spread it out over the top of the peanut butter. Put your peanut butter and jelly sandwich together and crimp your edges with the tines of a fork. Dip your sandwich quickly into a well beaten milk and egg mixture and then into your mixed flour and sugar.
Now drop your breaded peanut butter and jelly sandwich into your fry pan that is preheated to 350 degrees and fry until golden brown. Drain on a bed of paper towels and then sprinkle well with powdered sugar (optional).
