Today, April 2, is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. We hope you’ve planned your lunch accordingly.
We’re somewhat suspicious of food holidays around these parts, but we admit that the PB&J deserves recognition as an all-time classic of the American snack canon. In 2002, a survey revealed just how popular the combination is: The average American eats 1,500 PB&J sandwiches before graduating high school. Let that sink in for a moment.
While PB&J sandwiches are glorious in their most unadulterated form, there are so many other ways to enjoy the nut-and-preserves combo, including PB&J French toast, PB&J sushi, and PB&J hot dogs. To help you expand your horizons, we’ve compiled 10 recipes that go way beyond the average PB&J sandwich.
Check out 10 recipes—from PB&J scones to PB&J quesadillas—that you need to make for National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day.
