I love a good PB&J with strawberry jam, but imo, wheat bread clashes with it

j/k, I'm not a fan of wheat bread.

Yep, I've been using that trick from the start CG. The problem with a lettuce wrap sandwich is lettuce doesn't absorb the yummy juices of a bread sandwich. They're just too messy to eat in public.

Then I guess you'll just have to eat them that way only at home, Kayelle.

I make mine with honey sometimes, too, Cheryl! It was extra yummy when still had some small-batch lavender honey from a small apiary in the way-western fringes of Cleveland. Sadly, I will probably never be able to remember who or where they were again.

GG, good thing there's a lot of bread choices for all of us, huh? I can assure you, though, I won't try PB&J on rye bread. And I can tell you from experience that it really isn't good on sourdough. When you really want a PB&J and that's the only choice you have, you go with the flow. Once. Only once.

Our daughter would love a chip butty! Her ideal supper is french fries as a side to a baked potato! As far as three slices of bread in a club sandwich? Whenever I've seen those, it looks like they are made out of thinner slices of bread. Maybe those three add up to two normal slices? I wouldn't know - my mouth isn't big enough to try one. :

If I had to pick the quintessential U.S. sandwich, my choice would the a hamburger. Even though they might be dressed up differently from region to region, in the end they all are pretty much a ground beef patty between two halves of a sandwich bun as the basic.


Put your meat, cheese, and toppings between two sturdy pieces of romaine lettuce. When I want a sandwich but not the bread, I take two large leaves, fold each one tip-to-base to double them up and square them off, then make my sandwich. If you want condiments, I recommend you smear them between the slices of meat or cheese because they just don't adhere to the lettuce like they would on bread. NOT a real sandwich, but still danged good.
Now wrapping in lettuce would really put the death knell on a PB&J. Low carb isn't really possible with that one.

Funny, RP. You're right - completely undoable. But it would work with something like cold roast beef or turkey, cheese, tomato, and a schmear of something dressing-like. But NOT PB&J!

I'm going to have to try that lettuce wrap burger. The hardest thing about trying to go low carb, and particularly cutting out refined carbs, is giving up hamburgers, which is a staple of my previous eating habits.

I took my wife out for her birthday dinner tonight, and I was just a twitch away from ordering a double cheeseburger... ended up with surf and turf and did eat the breaded, deep fried shrimp, but that was all the carbs I had.

I felt proud of my resistance, but none the less heartbroken over leaving that cheeseburger unloved.

Good thing I can't stand peanut butter.

I miss PB&J made with Smucker's natural peanut butter and Smucker's strawberry preserves on Roman Meal bread!

I also used to like it on a big fat toasted onion roll with a couple slices of crispy bacon tucked into it.

In for a penny, in for a pound!

We have wholewheat pita breads here in UK. Do you in US?
