Sandwich of Shame
That is when I found the Sandwiches of Shame.
I could only bring myself to make one of them, but I will post both shocking recipes.
The first is innocently named:
Peanut Butter and Tomato Sandwich *
Toast on one side:
a slice of bread
Spread the untoasted side with:
Chopped cooked Bacon
You may top this with:
A thick slice of tomato
Season the tomato with:
1/4 teaspoon of brown sugar
salt and paprika
Put the sandwich under the broiler for 2-3 minutes.
Then, you are supposed to eat it. . . which I did. . . and . . . I . . . liked. . . it. . . .
If I were drunk I would have loved it so much I would have sat down and written a strongly worded thank you letter to Irma Rombauer and fallen asleep at the computer before I was finished.
My son liked it too, but he will happily drink his own bathwater, given the chance.
* Just so you know I made it will all organic ingredients on whole grain bread with tons of omega-3 to make myself feel less gross.
This sandwich is even more shocking, simply called:
Peanut Butter and Bacon Sandwich
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons pickle relish
1/4 cup minced bacon
Toast on one side
4 slices of bread
Spread the untoasted side with 'mixture'. Broil the sandwiches until the tops are brown. Slice them diagonally.
Irma suggest to, "try this combination on the unconverted." Ha!
I would try this as a closed sandwich, then deep fried. But again, only if I'd been drinking.
