glorified pb+j

On the nights my husband works late, I make super easy dinners that I know will not involve  hours of convincing my children to eat. It's usually oatmeal, if I am being real.
But my oldest's most favorite, the thing he'd eat for every meal, is definitely peanut butter and jelly.
Want to know what takes pb+j to the next level?
A waffle iron! I love mine - and not just for waffles...
I posted a recipe awhile back for waffle cookies - seriously delicious.
bread, peanut butter, blackberry jam, cooking spray and a waffle iron


I let my iron heat up, gave it a quick spray on both sides and stuck the sandwich right inside.

I smashed the sandwich down a bit and then let the iron do its job.


See how I justify this sweet little meal with roasted broccoli? I am all about balance.
The funny thing is, Eddie and George would take a pound of broccoli over a sandwich in any form. 
They are so weird.

This would totally work with any sandwich and looks way cooler than a panini, in my opinion. And Lute's, of course.
If you have a waffle iron, pull it out and try something fun!
(I'm telling you, those cookies...)
