This sounds a bit odd but, trust me, it is wonderful! You can use other types of pickles if you wish. I've heard of people who use Kosher dills. Personally, I find the sweet-tart flavor of sweet gerkins blend beautifully with the peanut butter. This recipe can easily be multiplied.

I was raised on these things!... My Mom used to make these for me when I was a kid, and here I am close to fifty years later I'm still eating them! As a mater of fact I just had 2 about 20 minutes ago!... There is no wrong way to eat these babies, however my preferred way is Smooth Peanut Butter and Dill Slices on White Bread... Now as a kicker I ad Mayo to the top slice of Bread... Preferably Dukes Mayonnaise due to it's excellent tangyness... I saw another writer on this review mention the same and they are right on! To those who have yet to try this I definitely say go for it!... Experiment and try different variations... I haven't found anyone to not like these... Unless they just did bot like pickles or peanut butter!... Enjoy!

I just tried this sandwich for the first time, love it! We tried Shoppers Food Warehouse plain white bread, Skippy natural creamy peanut butter and both Clausen Kosher dill slices and someones bread and butter pickles, I can't remember whose. I'm looking for a pickle right in the middle, b&b was too subtle, dill a smidge too strong. What's right in the middle anybody? Fantastic sandwich!

I think I posted this same recipe but I called for pickle chips. I like sweet pickles. The bread and butter types, I think, are the best. This is one of my favorite sandwiches but the pickles are important. If you get an inferior pickle then it's just no good.
