I have been eating pickle and peanut butter sandwiches as far back as I can remember. I tried finding out when the sandwich was first created. The closes answer I found was during the Great Depression. It may go back further than that. I did find find out Elvis Presley and Hemingway liked to eat peanut butter and pickle sandwiches.
I love eating peanut butter and pickle sandwiches so much that I added and mixed up the ingredients. The original peanut butter and pickle sandwich only had three ingredients. Which are Pickles, peanut butter and your choice of bread. I like to add cheese or turkey bacon. Sometimes I like to fry my sandwich to add a buttery taste on the outside of the bread.
One question I get asked a lot when eating peanut butter and pickle sandwiches in front of friends is what kind of pickles do you use dill, sweet or bread n butter. The answer is simple. Use your favorite kind of pickle. I suggest trying different flavors of pickles to figure out which you like best.
This how I make a peanut butter and pickle sandwich :
First thing I do is choose which kind of bread I will be using. I like the "Sandwich Skinnys", as they are thinner than most breads.
Next I spread a healthy serving of peanut butter on both slices of bread. The peanut butter holds the ingredients on to keep from falling out of the bread while eating.
Next I add a slice of cheese. This slice of cheese is Gouda. Really any kind of cheese will do. Choose our favorite or what is available.
Next I add as many pickles as I can get on one layer. I top it with the other slice bread with peanut butter.
If I have turkey bacon, I will add it between the slice of cheese and peanut butter on the piece of bread.
