Calvin's Peanut Butter Sandwich

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by A Messy Cook

“How’s my peanut butter sandwich coming? You’re using chunky peanut butter, right? I won’t eat smooth! Make it an open face sandwich, too! Don’t put any jelly on it or anything! And use some normal bread! I don’t like those weird grain breads! Did you cut it diagonally? I like triangles better than rectangles, so be sure to cut it right!” --a classic from the Calvin and Hobbes collection “The Revenge of the Baby-sat,” by Bill Watterson.

Top Review by ExpertCriticism

I cut diagonally per the instructions, but the result was disappointing. I would much prefer if cut into rectangles.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spread peanut butter on bread; do not use jelly or any other superfluous ingredient.
