I could pretend that I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks to give the Entrecard contest maximum exposure, but that just simply wouldn’t be true. The truth is, I just haven’t made anything worth talking about. I have the ingredients to make some cookies that I just have to get the motivation to get started on. I’m just not the kind of person who feels the need to make a brand new, never tried before dish every single time I cook. I find things that I like (and know how to make!) and make them time and time again. Generally that means I’ve already posted these dishes, and it just doesn’t make sense to post and say “Oh, I made Sausage Gravy and Biscuits, or I made Johnny Marzetti.
Today, however, I decided to share with you one of my more peculiar favorite sandwiches. The peanut butter and pickle sandwich. If you’re seriously grossed out by the thought of that, you can thank Ted Murphy from Izea because he’s the one who gave me the idea to post about them. Now, I’ve been eating peanut butter and pickle sandwiches since I was a kid, but Ted recently started a conversation about them when he started eating peanut butter and pickle wraps. It’s for that reason that when I was putting together my sandwich last night so I wouldn’t have to take meds on an empty stomach, I decided to snap a couple of pictures.
First you need two pieces of bread.
Then, you need your peanut butter. What kind you use is up to you. I tend to bake with creamy peanut butter, but I choose chunky peanut butter for sandwiches. My mom on the other hand uses creamy peanut butter for her PB & P sandwiches. So slather on some peanut butter of your choosing.
Finally, you need to add the pickles. If I’m just snacking on pickles, I prefer the high-quality Claussen variety. For a simple sandwich however, basic dill hamburger slices will do just fine! How many pickles you put on your sandwich is also up to you, but I choose to put a single layer of as many pickle slices I can fit on the piece of bread.
Then you just put your sandwich together, and enjoy! Mmm…. Now I’m wishing I’d brought another peanut butter and pickle sandwich to work with me for lunch, but I suppose I’ll just have to be satisfied with the turkey sandwich I have.
If you are a fellow PB & P lover, let’s hear from you! And if you try one after reading this, I would LOVE to hear your thoughts. The first time I saw my mom eating this sandwich, I said “Ewwwwwwwwww!” but she made me try and a bite and the rest is history!
