I grew up on this recipe! Talk about comfort food :) I will admit I used to use more than 2 slices of bacon. Nowadays, I use Hormels bacon bits. Thanks for posting so others can enjoy.
PB and B sandwiches are DELICIOUS! When we were kids Mom would regularly make them for us to carry to the bus stop. Sounds weird, but they're a part of my childhood and it's really a fantastic combo especially with thick-cut bacon. Don't knock it until you've tried it. PS...another "weird" thing from my childhood in SE MO is the school lunch ladies always served us PB sandwiches on Chili days. Dip your sammy in the chili. FAB!!
Hello there!! I love this combination and have enjoyed it for years! I picked up the idea from my Grandfather, but he liked sausage patties with peanut butter on toast. This was my breakfast last Sunday morning, and it was sooo satisfying. Thank you so much for posting this recipe! :)
Not gross at all! If you like salty peanuts, this is the sammie for you! I grew up on this stuff (over 50 years ago) and look how good I turned out! When I went away to college, I turned all my friends on to it when we went to the cafeteria for breakfast. We always toasted slices of white bread, spread on the peanut butter and topped it with 3-4 sliced of crispy bacon. The only difference is that we served it open face. YUM!
Our family adopted this recipe from an appetizer our mom used to make. She would take a good quality white bread and cut it into rounds using a shotglass. Then she would toast them under broiler to get croutons. Next step was spread the bread with peanut butter, then top with crispy crumbled bacon. That was haute cuisine a la 1960's. But the easy way to do it is to toast whole slices of bread, and make as told in this recipe. Tastes the same either way. I vote lazy. I have 5 siblings, and we all love to make this sandwich. Next generation is being indoctrinated as we speak. But the author forgot a key point. This sandwhich must be served with an ice cold glass of milk. Pure heaven and a taste from my childhood. A Proustian moment, if you will.
I've been eating my BLTs as PBBLs (peanut butter, bacon and lettuce)for years! Thank you everyone who loves this and validates my sanity! I sometimes add a few drops of hot sauce stirred into the peanut butter, and I use toasted white bread.
I love this with 7-grain bread, creamy peanut butter, and super crispy bacon. I have to spread the peanut butter while the toast is warm in order to get the perfect melted creaminess to constrast the texture of the grainy bread and crispy bacon. Eat it while it is warm and enjoy!
The stars are for my Grandpa! He made these sandwiches, with added jam, for us when we were kids. I'm 68 now and still enjoy these with breakfast.
I eat a similar sandwich but I use eggo waffles peanut butter and my favorite jelly with the bacon slices. It is soooo good, oh yeah and don't forget to butter your waffle. Cholesterol Nightmare!!! Lol........
I make these all the time, yum.
