Peanut Butter and Jelly

Fun Food For The kids

Recently I did a favor for a very good friend,  She asked me to watch her  2 children Sidney and Molly, while she attended some afternoon event. Her sitter canceled at the last minute, and she needed  help so I agreed, I  have always love her kids so it wasn't any big deal.  But being single with no children myself I had very little food in the house that the kids would really enjoy. I did have peanut butter and some jelly, but no bread, except for some hot dog buns. Well the kids love this sandwich, and had so much fun eating this sandwich,.It was all they talked about when their mother arrived  to pick them up. Who knew!

So easy,  just spread peanut butter on the hot dog buns
 place a peeled banana  on the bun as you would a hot dog. fold the bun and then drizzle your strawberry jelly over the banana and sprinkle a few crushed peanuts over the top

I have made this again and again for my self as well as for my adult friends, and everyone loves the idea. Seem  a peanut butter , banana, and jelly sandwich taste even better when  made to look like a hot dog.

    Nice idea of a sandwich, I'm having an idea of making some for myself. Thanks for sharing this experiment of yours.

    hmm what a realy neat idea!I would not think pb&j would work with a banana, but why not, its almost like a banana split..

    Yummy! I would have never thought to add a banana to a PB&J sandwich. I love the hotdog bun idea as well. Thank you for sharing.

    What a great idea and I'm sure hit with the kids. I thought of Elvis when I saw the pic too:=)

    Yes, banana dogs! I did a blog post on my site that included these as a quick breakfast idea! Busy Moms will love this idea!

    That's a cute idea. Bananas would fit well in the hot dog bun. We make our own homemade trail mix with raisins, chocolate chips, sunflower seeds and dried fruit. My grandkids love to help me make it and eat it.
