Go nuts tomorrow (April 2) for National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day! What better way than to whip up a gourmet PB&J? We like the ‘King of Monte Cristo’ recipe by Top Chef All-Star Spike Mendelsohn which uses Peter Pan® Simply Ground Peanut Butter. It elevates the classic lunch staple to a whole new level. For more recipe ideas, check out the Peter Pan site.
