Expert Tips

If you want larger slices, cut your preferred type of bread diagonally.

All children love the deliciosa combination of peanut butter and jelly, but these PB&J sandwiches aren’t just for packing in the school lunch box. Prepared with slices of bolillo-a popular bread in Mexico similar to French baguette-and dipped in egg, these classic sandwiches are transformed into an exquisite French toast-like meal, perfect for breakfast with the kids.

Directions

  • 1 Slice the loaves of bread into 1/2-inch slices. Spread peanut butter on half of the slices, and on the other half add your favorite jelly. Form sandwiches by pairing the different halves together.
  • 2 In a large bowl mix the eggs, milk and ground cinnamon. Beat the mixture with a whisk or fork until the eggs are well incorporated.
  • 3 Melt a tablespoon of butter in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Dip each PB&J sandwich into the egg mixture, checking that both sides are coated with egg.
  • 4 Cook the sandwiches in the skillet, adding more butter as necessary, until each side is golden brown.
  • 5 Serve the slices of PB&J torrejas drizzled with maple syrup or dusted with powdered sugar. Accompany with fresh fruit and enjoy!
