Ever had a Peanut Butter & Banana sandwich?

Am I just odd, or has anyone else ever had a peanut butter & banana sandwich?

The two textures work well together. The mushy banana counteracts the sticky peanut butter.

I like to have 1 layer of generous 1/2" thick pieces of banana instead of 2 layers of thinner pieces.

As a huge peanut-butter eater I have to say of course, FarmerMike. I'lll take 'em any way I can get 'em.

I do not hold with those who prefer that marshmallowy stuff on their peanut butter sandwiches.

Grilled ... Elvis' favorite.

I was cooking a BBQ competition in Tryon, N.C. and my team's pit boss insisted that, for a lark, I make pan-fried pb and banana sandwiches for the "Chef's Choice" category. 'Course, going up against champion teams who are entering things like lobster tails and Beef Wellington, my entry didn't score well. But the judges got a kick out of it.

Actually, the sandwiches tasted pretty good!

I've been eating them since as far back as I can remember ... about 52+ years ... two slices of bread, a thick layer of PB slathered on one ... a banana peeled, sliced in half (lengthwise) and then cut to length and placed on the PB (usually - one piece top and bottom and the two stubs form the center piece) OR the banana sliced in rings - like in "Nanner Puddin'".

My Nanna never fried 'em ....

Yeah VeraBlue .... PB and Honey .... if I ain't got a 'nanner ...

I'm a huge fan of those.
