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 ...

My Dad had a friend (Brig Gen. in the Air Force) who used to swear that a sandwich made from French's "prepared yellow mustard" and peanut butter tasted just like potted meat.

As far as I know - Dad never tested the theory.

Do I LOOK crazy? Heck no - I've never tried it, either!!!

LOL ... Jan - as everyone in Atlanta knows ... anything taste a little better with a little pig fat on it!

I like banana sandwiches with just enough mayo to make the banana stick to the bread, and I like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but none of it together. I found that if you work hard in the yard (long past the time to come inside and rest) a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a glass of milk will restore energy faster than most anything.

My daughter swears she uses the authentic Elvis recipe for peanut butter and banana sandwiches. She puts PB on both slices of bread, slices a banana in coins and sprinkles brown sugar over the lot. THEN, she puts the slices together, butters the outside and grills it. I've tasted it once. It is sinfully good. Yes, she is a little "gordita." But she has fun.
