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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices bread, your favorite
  • 2 -3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 4 -5 sweet gherkins, sliced lengthwise


  1. Spread peanut butter on both slices of bread.
  2. Lay pickles on one slice of bread.
  3. Cover with other slice of bread.
  4. Enjoy!

I absolutely love this. The crunchiness of the pickles perfectly matched the sweet-and-salty of the peanut butter. Cheap and highly recommended.

How nice to find out I'm part of a huge group who LOVE these sandwiches. 100% of the people I tell about these gems are sure they'll hate it. 100% of these same people are now converts. Think I'll go make one right now.

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!
