Gluten Free Peanut Butter and Jelly Grilled Sandwich

Have you ever been to Disneyland and eaten dinner at Goofy’s Kitchen? One of the items they have on their buffet menu line is PB&J Pizza. While my kids and I couldn’t eat it I made it at home on Udi’s Pizza Crust. It was really good! Warm, melty goodness! And this is coming from someone who really isn’t a big fan of PB&J sandwiches.

Now fast forward a year and a half… I was making everyone roast beef sandwiches except for one of the kids they wanted a PB&J sandwich instead. I took out the panini grill so I could make the Roast beef sandwiches and then said, “Can I put your PB&J on the panini grill, also?” and my kid was like, “Sure.”

Well the other two kids seemed to be jealous and all I could hear was, “Can I have a bite to try your sandwich?” “This is sooooooo good!”

Anyhow, a new sandwich was born in our home, LOL.

Gluten Free Patty Melt Panini Style

I was battling the what should I make for dinner question until the last minute when I decided it was a burger kinda night. And then proclaimed it was even better — a patty melt kinda night! I love grilled onions… So having an excuse to sauté some up is heaven.

5 servings

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 onion, sliced into 1/4″ rings
  • 5 (1/4 lb) ground beef patties
  • 10 slices gluten free bread (I used Udi’s)
  • 10 slices swiss cheese
  • 5 tablespoons thousand island dressing
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Butter

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat panini grill to medium-high heat (375°F).

Add olive oil and 1/2 Tbsp of Butter into a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add onions and sauté until browned, about 8 minutes.

Remove onions from pan and set aside. In same pan, fry the hamburger patties for 3 to 4 minutes until very browned on one side. Flip and continue cooking the other side for another 3 minutes. Remove from pan.
Assemble the patty melts:

Butter one side of your bread. On other side top bread with a slice of cheese, onions, the burger patty, thousand island and a final piece of bread.

Grill your sandwich until golden and the cheese melts, about 2-3 minutes. Repeat for each burger.
