"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!"
"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."
"I love a bacon and peanut butter sandwich! This is one of the childhood recipes that I try to get everyone hooked on. My kids have also learned to love this sandwich too, as well as, peanut butter and sweet pickle sandwiches! :) Thanks for sharing this treasure with those who don't already know!"
"I don't think peanut butter and bacon sandwiches are actually a thing. They certainly wouldn't be tasty at any time of the day. Also not as functional as this cool new recipe I found for a thing called ice cubes. Would not recommend."
"I use crunch peanut butter. It's gooooood. little mayo as well sometimes."
"I love these too! The smokiness of the bacon compliments the peanut butter. This makes a great snack when you are craving protein."
"This wasn't bad at all. I have to admit I could hardly taste the bacon, but I'm assuming that's because I usually put lots of pb on my sandwiches :) I'll try it again with less pb and maybe an extra slice of bacon."
"I love this ! My husband just laughs at breakfast because I am just moaning eating this . It's so good . give it a try."
"This is one of my favorite treats. I use the pre-baked bacon - 30 seconds in the microwave and you have a yummy snack!"
"Hi greetings from Portugal. Oooh my how this brings back memories of when I was 15, and living in Northern Canada, a friend of ours would always serve us kids this treat every friday night. Thanks for bringing back some lovely memories."
"I double up on the bacon, but this is one of my fvorites also. well done for the bacon/peanut butter guys... ralph"
"I've eaten these for a couple of years now and I thought at first it sounded weird. To my surprise I loved it, but I don't toast the bread and I definitely have at least 3 slices of very crispy bacon. I then smash the sandwich together to crack up the bacon. It is sooo good! Not healthy, but yummy for sure!"
"While reading through all of the reviews about people remembering this from their childhood, I started thinking, "Was I a deprived child because I'd never had this?" Considering that I LOVE bacon and I LOVE peanut butter, I thought I would love this sandwich. It was ok, but I wasn't crazy about it. Perhaps it would be different if I'd had this as a child and it brought back great childhood memories. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game."
