"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."
"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."
"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!!"
"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!"
"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! :)"
"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."
"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!"
"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."
"I always get the Pop-eye squint whenever I extoll the virtues of this sandwich to non-believers! My take is this, PB must be thickly spread on both pieces of toast with at least two pieces of bacon, 3 preferably, in the middle.I prefer the crunchy version of PB. I've eaten it as stated or with honey or marmalade added. It's all good!"
"I learned about this sandwich years ago while I was at my Mamaw's house. They always had breakfast at lunchtime, and I had a PBJ. She made too much bacon and had plenty left over. I had a mouthful of PBJ and tried a piece of bacon with it, Voila' PBJ and Bacon Sandwich. It is Wonderful, and I have been eating them for over 30 years. YUM!"
"I also grew up on this recipe. My friends would think I was nuts until I made them try it. I too use more that 2 slices of bacon. I figure go big or go home! :) We introduced this at a restuarant in Bermuda and they actually put it on their menu!!"
