  • Strawberry jelly or any jelly flavor you prefer can be used in place of grape jelly.

📖 Variations

  • Add fresh fruit - add slices of banana or strawberries to the bread slices before putting them together (the sliced fruit will be in the center of this classic sandwich).
  • Delicious Dessert - slice frozen pound cake and use that in place of the bread for the sandwich. Cook as directed in the recipe card (and above) and top with ice cream, whipped cream, and strawberry or chocolate syrup.
