This is one of those~’Why not’ recipes!  I seem to have lots of those, don’t I?!

But really…if there were any way to improve on a PB&J Sandwich…frying it would be the only way, right?!  And by frying it, I mean..slathering it up with 2 layers of Peanut Butter & Jelly, and then dipping it in good old “Bennigan’s authentic recipe”  Monte Cristo Batter!

Upgrade that typical PB&J and getchasome of this insane, sky-high PB&J goodness~  trust me!  🙂

What you’ll need:


Peanut Butter


Bennigan’s Monte Cristo Batter> only THE BEST BATTER KNOWN TO MANKIND (Makes enough Batter for at least 2 double decker PB&J’s):

1 Egg

1 1/2 cups Flour

1 & 1/4 cup Water

1 tbsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Sugar

1/2 tsp Salt

Powdered Sugar for that classic Monte dusting.

Oil for frying~I used Canola

A shallow fry pan


Make your PB&J as normal~Feel free to cause your loved ones to be concerned by stacking them like I did…lol

Now mix together all of the Batter ingredients together until smooth.

Dip that PB&J in the Batter..coat that sucker good!

Fry it up in the hot oil (about 2″), making sure that all sides get good and golden~

Let it cool and then let it snow…

Slice into that warm, drippy, crispy succulent sandwich and try not to moan too loudly…

Prepare your lips!  ~Enjoy!  🙂
