I can't test those yet because of lack of proper suplies, but I'm going to pick up marshmallow fluff and sweet cream cheese and at least one caramel tomorrow so I'll be sure to try. Those sound excellent.

Banana Brain - my favorite breakfast at Grandpa and Grandma's as a kid:
creamy peanut butter and banana slices on hot squaw bread toast.
(no substitutions here!)
Melts in your mouth!!!!


Another PB, having nothing to do with sandwiches: I like to stir fry chicken in peanut butter, green onions and some spicy pepper oil. (Over angel hair pasta)
I've had bananas on creamy pb on toast and bagels, and I agree its wonderful. 9/10, just from memory. And I love the way the Thai always get peanuts into their chicken dishes. Its fabulous.

you must use dill pickles, very good.

Also, BB re: mish's suggestion - HH frequently uses tortillas to make his pbj's when we are out of bread.

We may get low on bread, but NEVER on peanut butter!

My hubby likes PB and cream cheese.
Out of cream cheese.

PB with pears: very good. It has the same good effect as the banana of being very sweet and soft with the pb, but I really like this new flavor. This almost tastes... tropical.

Peanut butter and honey has ALWAYS been my favorite , especially if you let it sit for 15 minutes and the honey soaks into the bread a little...oh, heaven!

Unfourtunatly I don't have pickles OR fluffy marshmellow creme stuff with me today, but I will get more suplies from Trader Joes or another trusty well stocked market tomorrow.
And I love PB and Honey too! It rules.

See other bacon post. I know its not fair to judge of me since I didn't use actual bacon, but I know that so far I'm bot liking the peanut butter and pig taste.

OK, I'm about to try this pb&j tortilla, which I had a lot of trouble wrapping and re-wrapping but I think I finally got right.

This is very good! What an interesting squishy texture expirience. I don't know why I had always picture pb being bad in tortillas. Because of the thinness of the tortilla, it really lets the peanut butter and jelly flavors (who are really the stars of the show) stand out bodly. I think that even though I would like the pb and apple and raison and honey tortilla better as a sandwhich for its flavors, I actually like this one better in a tortilla for such an interesting squishyness. I really STUFFED the tortilla, btw, and I'm having pleasany mouthfuls of peanutbutter with preserves.
This is a 9/10 expirience.

I like my peanut butter sandwich with just peanut butter (either creamy or crunchy) but I put lots of butter on the bread first. Yummy!!!!

But bacon tastes nothing like honey ham... I've never had either of those things with peanut butter, but bacon is one of God's great gifts, and so is peanut butter, so I may have to try this. I've always been a bit of a PB purist, and have never even tried PB & J!
