Peanut Butter & Jelly Stuffed French Toast Crust


My daughter loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches but she cannot stand the crust. I hate throwing food away so I decided I was going to keep the crusts I cut off of her sandwiches and freeze them and when I had enough to do something with them I would but what? I know french toast!

  1. Crust from sandwich bread loaves
  2. Peanut Butter
  3. Jelly
  4. 2 Eggs
  5. 1 tbsp. Vanilla
  6. 1 tbsp. Cinnamon
  7. 1 tbsp. Coconut Oil
  1. I had the crust saved from 2 loaves of bread. The crust already had remnants of the peanut butter and jelly from sandwiches were I cut the crust off. I used 2 eggs that I whipped with a fork and added the vanilla and cinnamon in the egg mix. I heated a pan with coconut oil so that when I cooked the french toast crusts they would not stick. Then I added the crust to the pan and cooked until it was slightly browned and then flipped the other side and cooked that side until it was slightly brown as well.
  1. This is a fun breakfast dish for kids because they can just dip their crust into maple syrup. It's fun finger food!

Do you save your crust and if so how do you use them?

  11. We don’t like wasting food. This sounds like a creative way to use the crusts that we cut off. Who doesn’t love French toast??

  13. Wow, this is genius. I never thought to save the crust, what a great idea.

  14. Awesome idea!! I have a very hard time with the kids not eating the crust also, I am going to try this…Thanks!

  68. Sandra VanHoey says:

    I must say, you are pretty good. I would not have thought of this one and we too have kids that will not eat the crust. Might have to do this one myself

  69. Brilliant idea! You are very creative, I never thought of saving the crust. My daughter is the same and I always en up throwing it away as if it was something natural. Pretty dumb on my side πŸ™‚

  70. Great way to not have so much food waste! If the kids don’t want the crust, I usually just give them to the dogs lol

  71. What a great way to use up all those crusts. i bet the kids didn’t even know they were the crusts either. Great idea!

  72. My 4 year old also dislike the crusts. I really like this idea. I love that you use coconut oil in the recipe too, because it is such a healthy fat to have in our diets.

  73. My 4 year old also dislike the crusts. I really like this idea. I love that you use coconut oil in the recipe too. I’m wondering if I can fool my daughter this way! Lol

  74. very cleaver and smart of you to come up with this idea. My daughter too loves PB&J and wants the crust removed. What a waste as I’ve been throwing crust. i want to try this one because they both love french toast too. Thanks for this wonderful idea

  75. Oh wow! Three things I love, peanut butter, jelly, and french toast! Yummy delight! Not sure about the crust part though but perhaps when it’s all together it will be great!

  76. This sounds SO good and I’m sure my daughter would love it! It looks like a really fun finger food!

  77. That looks RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING. Seriously, I need some of that right about now. I love peanut butter and jelly, and I love French Toast.

  78. This sounds amazing! I bet my kids would love it! They love PB&J and French Toast!
