My kids love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and would probably eat them everyday if I let them. But, I have this weird thing about food variety…as in, I can’t eat the same thing more than two days in a row (which is why I have to repurpose leftovers in order to eat them).
So, that means when Tater asked me for a PB&J for the fourth day in a row last week, I had to get creative. How does PB&J sushi sound? I even gave her some thick paper straws to use as chopsticks. She gobbled them up. Junior unrolled his and licked the jelly out, but 2 year olds are just a different species.
1. Cut the crusts off 2 pieces of bread (this will make either two thin rolls (pictured above) or one thicker roll).
2. Roll out the bread. Yes, that is a Play-Doh roller, but I washed it and it worked better than my big rolling pin. You’ll want the bread to pretty thin, otherwise it won’t roll well. If you want thicker rolls instead of the smaller thin rolls (pictured above), roll two pieces of bread together.
3. Spread peanut butter and jelly in alternating stripes, like this…I tried it several ways, but the stripes worked best because you got a bit of both PB and jelly in each bite.
4. Roll them up, and cut them like sushi!
