Peanut Butter Quesadillas–With Jelly!!

August 24, 2012

Everyone in my house just Loves peanut butter!
We got into a phase with Andrew, where he wanted a cheese quesadilla just about every day.

So we were trying other things to get him out of it.  Then a friend suggested that her kids liked Peanut Butter quesadillas!  WHAAAATTTT???

pb&j quesadillaYep, Did it that very same day – and it’s been a must-have in this house ever since.

How do you do it?  It’s Very simple!  I usually use a pan – but the Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler was already on my counter – and makes the perfect quesadilla every time. making peanut butter and jelly quesadillas

I have two boys – So I use two whole tortillas to make it a ‘sandwich’ vs. when Just Andrew would eat it, I’d just make half.

Spread the peanut butter on – cook on medium heat until the tortilla is slightly crunchy and the PB is warmed (Not TOO Hot!!)

preparing the quesadilla

I use a pizza cutter to cut them into smaller bite-sized pieces – because that’s the way my boys like them Smile

PB Quesadilla!

Then Serve’m Up with Jelly!

  1. That’s very cute! Lol you can’t beat peanut butter and jelly

  2. Sandy VanHoey says:

    Jif is the only one I get too…love it! I also love quesadillas but never would have thought to try this. I think my grandson would like it just like your boys do

  3. Thomas Murphy says:

    That looks so good, great idea!

  4. I also love peanut butter! I have to be careful though because I find myself eating it right out of the jar! I like your recipe! I would love to try it!

  5. Cute! Jif is the only peanut butter I like, but everyone else will eat any of it lol. I think I’ll have to try this sometime!

  6. We’ve used tortillas to make pb “sandwiches”, but we have never warmed it or used jelly for dipping! I am definitely going to try this with my 4 year old! Thanks for the idea!!!

  7. brilliant idea!! My kids love PB&J and Quesadillas!!

  8. What a great idea! The granddaughters would just love this. Thanks for sharing.

  9. I would never ever eat these, but I have a feeling I’ll be making them for my sons very soon. They are PB&J fanatics!

  10. Looks yummy!

  11. How cute!! I love it.

  12. Reminds me of my grilled peanut butter sandwiches. I love warm, gooey peanut butter.

  13. This is a great idea. I have some almond butter so I’ll try that.

  14. Michelle S says:

    Looks pretty simple for my child! However, I tried making a sandwich with a tortilla and it didn’t taste right so I used flatout bread and it tasted a million times better.

  15. Stephanie says:

    ohh my daughter would love this!!

  16. Now that’s a great idea for a lunch box to!

  17. My kids would love these too – I’d put banana in em!

  18. Lisa Brown says:

    That is a really great idea…would have never thought of it myself. Good use for any leftover dinner our lunch tortillas!

  25. shelly peterson says:

    This is a nice twist from regular pb and j sandwiches. My son and grandson would love this.

  26. James Robert says:

    This would make a bit of a twist for the kids and they would enjoy it being on a tortilla heated up. They also just like nutella on bread, wonder how it would be on these as well.
