Peanut Butter & Jelly Crusted French Toasted Sandwiches on the Baking Steel (Pix O'Plenty)

How about that name?  Yeah, it sucks, but the sandwich doesn't.  I saw it on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives and thought it would be fun to do.  The dish couldn't be more simple.  Make a peanut butter & jelly sandwich using thick bread.  We made six sandwiches.  Three with grape jelly, three with strawberry.  Next, make your favorite french toast egg mixture.  Ours has vanilla extract & cinnamon.  The crusted part is Frosted Flakes which we pulsed in the food processor.  Now dunk the sandwich in the egg mixture just long enough for the bread to accept the cereal coating in the next step, but not so long for it to turn into mush.  Coat with the cereal and now it's ready to cook.

I got the egg stabilized at 350 and pre-heated the Baking Steel.  I'll let the pictures finish the story.

    That's an Adjustable Rig from www.ceramicgrillstore.com .  The products are top notch and American made.  Check them out and if you have any questions, call Tom.  He's a really nice guy who won't sell you anything he doesn't think you need.

  • Looks great Fred, proves you don't have to over think cooking on the egg. Yeah you can get really elaborate but simple is oh so good!

    That's a 19".  I figured we wouldn't make a pizza larger than that and we wanted to have great convection to cook the toppings.  We're really happy with it!

    Thanks Fred for the inspirational cook.  We grilled up some of these at the  Midwest Eggfest and turned out to be a huge hit!  We planned on doing 4 sandwiches and cutting them into quarters for samples.   We ended up going through a whole loaf of bread and slicing them from quarters into eighths to feed the line waiting for them to come off the egg. Had people coming back throughout the day asking if we were going to be cooking more.  Even had a few, "best food we've had all day".  Which was cool.  Went well with our glazed doughnut cheeseburgers!  Thanks again for the great idea
