Fried pb&j with bananas sandwich

  • Preheat a large, heavy bottomed pot or large fry pan with canola oil until it reaches 350 degrees (use candy thermometer to check temp).
    • You can also use a dutch oven or stock pot to fry as well.
    • For the canola oil, you’ll want around 2 inches or so. You cant to be able to fully submerge the sandwich in the oil.
    • If you don’t have a candy thermometer, you can tell the oil is ready when it’s shimmering with a whiff of smoke.
  • Spread creamy peanut butter evenly on one slice of bread.
  • Spread grape jelly evenly on another slice of bread.
  • This is very important: Pause to lick any peanut butter or jelly you may have gotten on your fingers.
  • Slice the banana and place onto the piece of bread with the peanut butter.
  • Close sandwich and submerge into the bowl of funnel cake batter until completely covered.
  • Place the sandwich into the preheated oil but be careful! Use tongs or a large slotted spoon.
  • Fry until golden brown on both sides.
  • Remove from oil and place onto paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
  • Drizzle as much chocolate syrup as you’d like and garnish with powdered sugar and done!
