It's National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day! Celebrate With a Waffle 'Wich

It's National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day! Celebrate With a Waffle 'Wich

Happy National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day! In honor of the holiday, I'm sharing a contemporary update on what happens to be one of my favorite nostalgic foods.


I've said before that some of the best sandwiches evoke memories, and this recipe goes back when I was maybe 7 or 8, and my mom fixed me some waffles before realizing we were out of syrup. She improvised to make this sandwich, and "peanut butter and jelly waffles" soon became one of my favorite meals. Like the nonwaffly version, this PB&J is very easy to make and can inspire countless variations: almond instead of peanut butter, different flavors of waffles or even waffles from scratch, honey in place of jelly, Elvis-style with bananas, and on and on.

This time I used Eggo cinnamon waffles, which I highly recommend. The only requirement for this breakfast or lunch sandwich — and what sets it apart from a traditional PB&J — is using hot, toasted waffles, which melt the peanut butter in just the right warm and comfy way. To see my recipe, keep reading.
