To make tasty twists on the classic sammie, check out our PB&J matrix below. There are more than 250 ways to mix and match the ingredients, assuming you pull one from each column. After you choose a carb canvas, add a savory spread, top with some fruit (yes, pumpkin is technically a berry) and then, to really make your taste buds sing, sprinkle on something from the "extra" column. Not the creative type? Fear not! We've come up with four mouthwatering combos you're sure to love. Happy noshing!
