Popular with kids, this campfire pop tart toastie makes a quick and easy breakfast while camping. At its simplest, this is a toasted peanut butter and jelly sandwich. But, when toasted and topped with icing, it becomes a super breakfast treat!
This recipe uses a basic bread sandwich with peanut butter and jelly filling. After being toasted it is topped with the cliche icing squiggle from a plastic bag. Make sure to let the sandwich cool for a few minutes before eating, so you don’t burn your mouth with hot jelly.
Once the basic recipe is mastered it can be tweaked with anything your imagination can think up! Try swapping out the bread for raisin loaf, cinnamon bread, or even slices of cake. The jam can be swapped for your favorite flavors or try chocolate hazelnut spread instead of peanut butter.
