This idea didn’t come because of a burning need to try something new but out of necessity: I wanted peanut butter and jelly and the only bread was hot dog buns.
But, I must say, PB&J on a hot dog bun is better than okay. It’s better than simply delicious. It’s even better than amazing. What’s better than that?
PB&J on a Hot Dog Bun is the Future!
How to Make It
It’s fairly simple but the key part is to layer the peanut butter on both sides of the inside of the hot dog bun. And, unlike a hot dog that’s too long or too short, you have the full amount of bun to play with and can cover the entire inside. It’s probably best to open the bun up really wide. I happen to like Skippy Natural Chunky style peanut butter but it’s really up to you.
After the peanut butter is applied then you pour the jelly down the middle. This is where you need to be a little careful not too get too much near the ends of the bun. Go ahead and layer on the jelly extra thick – the bun is thicker than regular old bread so it’ll handle it.
At the end it should look something like this. Then all you have to do is pick your favorite beverage and enjoy.
As I said earlier, this is the future of PB&J. My son Quinn, pictured above, is kind of a picky eater. When I first invented this he wanted no part of it. But today he actually asked for it. Â He asked for it! And he ate it up way quicker than a regular sandwich and didn’t even eat around the crust like normal.
So mark the date. February 5, 2009: The Day PB&J on a Hot Dog Bun went mainstream.
