Peanut Butter, Bacon and Mayo Sandwich

My close friend's favorite!

She said:

Put Mayo on one slice, peanut butter on the other, fry three-four slices of your favorite bacon. drain oil. add hot bacon to peanut butter side, so it starts to melt it. chow down.

How is it? lol

Ps. with white bread

  1. I might be wrong, but if you add a sliced banana to this brilliant combo, don't you have an Elvis Death Sandwich?

    1. I don't think the "Elvis" sandwich had mayo. And the whole thing was fried, like a monte cristo. Mmmm....that's eatin'!

        I think adding mayo to it makes it a "death sandwich"


      2. For years I have put mayo with my peanut butter sandwich and my kids said "gross". Hmmmm. Now I will add bacon.

          I always make peanut butter and bacon, but never heard of mayo. But we also liked peanut butter and butter when we were kids. Either way, has to be on warm toast so the peanut butter melts a little

            Peanut butter and mayo toasted--YUM! I mentioned this childhood classic at work a few months ago and no one else had tried it. I thought it was a common combo. So very very good.

            My favorite odd peanut butter sandwich was made for me at a restaurant I worked at in college. One of the cooks took it upon himself to make new vegetarian (not vegan) dishes for me to try on break. Here it is (and I realize that this will sound horrid to many, but everyone who has tried it on my advice--all 5 of them--has loved it).

            It's a grilled sandwich (preferably on rye, but whole wheat works) with peanut butter, cheddar cheese, banana, and grilled red onions. Oh so good.

              I decided that, having posted about this sandwich after having not eaten it for years, I should try it again. So we had it for dinner, with a few changes. I had just carmelized onions today with a little thyme, so we used those. I made buttermilk white bread today, and used that instead of rye.

              The verdict after all these years...still delicious. My partner, who had never had this before, also loved it.

                1. re: LuluTheMagnificent

                  Just spread the pb on onse slice of bread, layer on the grilled or carmelized onions, add sliced bananas, put the cheddar cheese on top of that, top it with the other piece of bread. Then grill it however you would typically do a grilled cheese. Are yo going to try it?

              Dad, is that you? Just kidding. My father has always eaten peanut butter and mayo sandwiches. Sometimes he'd add a slice of onion. My sister and I never understood the appeal.

            3. A friend taught me to appreciate a BLT with peanut butter replacing mayo (which I do not like on sandwiches).

                Every time you mention this, I make a note to myself to try it. This time I will!

              2. peanut butter, banana and mayo is a fairly common combo in the south.

                i also started eating the occasional PB and cheese on toast (like PB cheese crackers).

                my grandma used to eat PB and pickles. i never got into that one, but i did give it a try.

                i've never tried it with bacon. i can't see how it would beat the flavors of a BLT with mayo, so i think i'll just keep those two combos separate ;)
