Fried Brioche Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
- Prep Time:15 mins
- Cook Time:1 min
- Total Time:16 mins
- 2 slices brioche 3/4-inch thick
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons jelly
- 1 large egg
- 1/6 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/6 cup milk
- 3/8 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Slice brioche loaf into thick slices, about 3/4 inches.
Dollop 2 tablespoons of the peanut butter and 2 tablespoons of jelly in the center of the bread. Put the slices together and press around the edges to seal the bread. Set aside.
For the batter: Add 2 eggs, 1/3 cup flour, 1/3 cup of milk, and 2 tablespoons of water. Whisk until the lumps disappear.
Dip each side of the sandwich in the batter.
Cook at medium heat
#SpoonTip: In order to see if your oil is ready, dip the end of a wooden spoon or chopstick in. If the oil bubbles steadily, it's ready. If it bubbles rapidly, turn the heat down and wait a couple minutes.
Use tongs and place the sandwich in the oil. Fry for 30 seconds on each side.
Dab off the extra oil. Place the sandwich in a mixture of 3/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Eat up!
