Special Reserve Peanut Butter and Bacon Sandwich

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

A vegetarian version-just by substituting tempeh bacon for regular bacon. But standard bacon is equally good. I save my special reserve secret stash of peanut butter (Peter Pan of course!) for this recipe! Slightly adapted from Quick and Simple magazine, August 2006.

Adding red onion to this sandwich was inspired - I don't know how you came up with it but it really makes the sandwich. We've had it several times since finding your recipe, and have used a variety of apple types, our favorite being Fuji, and have always skipped the lemon juice. For a special treat DD gets this in her lunchbox, along with a breath mint, of course! :-)
