Peanut Butter and Pickle Sandwiches

by , under Sandwiches

From the kitchen of: Paul Mineart, Sr.

  • Bread
  • Crunchy Peanut Butter
  • Sweet Pickle Chips (NOT Bread and Butter Pickles)

Directions: pretty obvious; just make a peanut butter sandwich and put a layer of pickle chips in there.
The important thing is to get the right pickles, and they’re hard to find anymore. Bread and Butter pickles (the kind with the little yellow floaty things) don’t taste right. You need real sweet pickles, and they usually only make them in midget size anymore, not as chips. I like to toast the bread lightly, but it’s not necessary. The cool thing is that the pickles keep the peanut butter from sticking to the roof of your mouth, so you can load up on peanut butter if you want.
My dad used to make this for us when we were little kids. I know it sounds strange, but give it a try; it’s great. One of my all-time favorite comfort foods, second only to apple sauce and cottage cheese mixed together.

    When I was a kid we did the exact same sandwhich but we added grape jelly with crushed Doritos inside.

    I love dill pickle slices and peanut butter sandwiches. I’ll try sweet gherkins next time.

    Some good pickles to try may be the Swedish sweet pickle chips that can be found at IKEA. I purchased a jar along with some Ligonberry sauce and a Meatball Sauce packet. Yum!

    As a variation, try peanut butter and relish. I believe it is the vinegar kick that helps which is why I experimented once with Peanut Butter and Mayonaise which I also enjoy!

    I love mine simpler. Coat a piece of fresh white bread with JIF. Then wrap it around a crunchy dill pickle spear.

    When I was younger, when I asked for a snack late at night or when there wasn’t much in the fridge, my dad would serve up peanut butter, pickles (almost always dill), and cheddar cheese on a cracker. it sounds a little strange, but tastes GREAT. I agree, it is great comfort food!!
