- 2 teaspoons butter
- 2 slices white bread
- 1 teaspoon peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons any flavor fruit jelly
- Heat griddle or skillet to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Spread peanut on unbuttered side of one slice of bread, and jelly on the other.

- Cook for 4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown, and heated through.
