Peanut Butter Porter Battered PB&J
recipe from

8 slices of white bread
peanut butter
1 cup Sweet Baby Jesus
1 cup flour
oil, for frying
powdered sugar, for garnish (optional)

Prepare four peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Butter the outside of your bread and cook in a skillet, preheated over medium heat, until brown and crispy. Let cool a little.

Meanwhile, whisk together the flour and beer.

In a large pot, preheat oil over medium heat. (Enough to deep fry the sandwich.)

Completely coat each sandwich in beer batter.

Carefully place a sandwich in the hot oil. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Flip and cook another 3-5 minutes. (Time may vary depending on your oil temperature. Watch carefully.) Repeat until all of the sandwiches are fried.

Remove sandwiches to a paper towel-lined plate to soak up any excess oil. Cut and dust with powdered sugar (if desired).

Serve with a Peanut Butter and Jelly Cocktail! (1 part Founder’s Rubaeus and 2 parts DuClaw’s Sweet Baby Jesus!)
