PASADENA, Calif., April 2 (UPI) -- California eateries are celebrating National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day with creations including a PB&J burger topped with bacon.
Slater's 50/50 in Pasadena is allowing celebrants of Tuesday's holiday to purchase a peanut butter and jelly burger that features a ground beef patty, peanut butter, jelly and tick-sliced bacon on a honey wheat bun, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.
Pasadena's Melt It! eatery, which specializes in grilled cheese creations, is featuring a fried PB&J made by spreading the principal ingredients on two pieces of white bread that are then dipped in tempura batter, dropped in a deep fryer and coated in powdered sugar.
Susan Feniger's Street restaurant in Los Angeles is offering a peanut butter and jelly cookie for those who aren't in the mood for a sandwich. The cookies resemble peanut butter thumbprint cookies, but feature a dollop of jelly in the center instead of the traditional chocolate.
Oinkster in Eagle Rock is offering another dessert option, a peanut butter and jelly cupcake filled with strawberry jam and topped with peanut butter frosting.
