The new year is almost upon us – so what’s your New Year’s resolution? Since the world as we know it will end in 2012, your resolution this year better be a good one. How about: “To eat more peanut butter!” If so, you came to the right place. Keep my motto in the front of your mind so every time you grab something to eat, you’ll remember “everything is better with peanut butter.” How about starting off the new year with a unique twist on a classic. Adding crunchy peanut butter to a grilled cheese adds nuttiness, good texture, and more gooey goodness.
2 slices whole wheat bread
1 or 2 slices American cheese
2T crunchy peanut butter w/ salt
Spread peanut butter onto one slice of bread, then top with cheese and remaining slice of bread. Spread half of the butter on one side of the sandwich and place the other half in a small skillet. Heat the skillet on medium heat. When the butter is melted, place the sandwich (un-buttered side down) into the skillet and cover with a lid. Flip when the bottom is brown and crispy, about 2 minutes. Cover and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
