Grilled PB&J Recipe

Sandi Tuttle of Hayward, Wisconsin enjoys peanut butter and jelly sandwiches so much, she turned them into a yummy breakfast treat reminiscent of stuffed French toast. She sometimes bakes them in the oven, but cooking them in a skillet is quicker.

  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
