Slashfood Sandwich Day!

Today is Slashfood Sandwich Day!

In celebration of this — I am a complete sandwich junkie — I’m going to make my favorite sandwich for Christine and I in Apple’s cafeteria.

The infamous PBLBM. Delicious. But you have to follow the instructions exactly.

  • Start with two slices of good, solid, bread. Multi-grain works well. Country style sourdough (with the big holes) works even better.
  • Put peanut butter on one slice, mayonnaise on the other. Do not let the PB and M touch in any way!!
  • On the Peanut side, add slices of banana.
  • On the Mayonnaise side, add slices of bacon.
  • Place a layer of lettuce on top of the bacon. Make sure the bacon is entirely covered (but don’t use too much lettuce).
  • Put it together as a proper sandwich.

If it is assembled correctly, the lettuce will act as a gasket between the two halves. This is the critical detail.

Enjoy. Totally delicious sandwich.

(PBLBM is Peanut Butter, Banana, Lettuce, Bacon, Mayonnaise — the order is critical).

    Gasket or no gasket…….what odd mood inspired you to take a crack at this contraption?

  4. Dad says:

    Bill, is the bacon cooked or from the package?

    one of my cousins used to make a sandwich of peanut butter & sliced tomatoes. I saw him eat it. he said he made it with left over meatballs and cold cuts(lunch meat) too.

    This has been one of my favorite sandwiches for over 50 years, except I didn’t put lettuce on it. People thought I made this up, but I think I first saw it in a camping magazine. Crunchy, gooey, sweet, salty, savory, and yummy!
    Next time I make one, I will CONSIDER adding the lettuce gasket, though the introduction of green food into a perfectly fine sandwich seems risky. I may have to make 2 sandwiches: one as God intended us to make them, and another with the lettuce. 😉
