My ds2 eats his pb&j in such a weird way that I have to do pb first with one knife on both pieces, then use another knife to add jelly. I have to add the jelly while scraping the pb off at the same time, back and forth, so that they mix together. I do not put the bread together like a sandwich. He will pull it apart and eat them separately. If I put the pb on first, then the jelly on top, he will simply lick all of the jelly off and declare that he is finished with his meal Lucky for me, my ds1 only eats pb, and won't touch jelly! His gets made first, then the PITB one second. I do not like pb, so I have never made one for myself.

Re: Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich

I voted "other."

I do peanut butter first with the knife. Then I use a SPOON to get out the jelly and plop it on the bread, then I use the knife to spread it.

God bless!

I only eat PB&J open-faced on toast. But I use squeeze-able jam, so I put PB on first, then jam. Only 1 knife needed.

If I am making sandwiches for the boys, I layer all 4 pieces of bread with a thin layer of PB first, then squirt the jam on one piece each and spread it around. That way it isn't soggy before lunch time, and I didn't contaminate the PB. (Cutting is, of course, done after all sandwiches have been made)

now if i am making PB & J sandwiches that are going to sit, like for lunch later or if I make one for DS1 lunch the night before then I do:

1. Butter on both pieces of bread
2. PB on both pieces of bread
3. Jelly on top of PB on one piece of bread.

I remember in elementary school we had to write out the steps to make the perfect PB & J sandwhich. then our teacher made each kids PB & J sandwich based on their directions and then we got to eat them. That was 2nd or 3rd grade so long time ago but the memory has stuck with me.
This is exactly how I do it.

Re: Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich

I usually mix peanut butter and jelly in a bowl first and then put it on. Weird, I know

Re: Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich

One knife, jelly first, jelly wiped on peanut butter side, then peanut butter.

DH does one knife, pb on both sides, then jelly with a spoon.

I know. Pregnancy cravings! I had just had one. That's why I thought of it!

Jelly first, 1 knife. The jelly is easier to wipe (or lick...) off before it goes into the peanut butter.
