Passion for Pork

Recipe: Peanut Butter, Bacon and Banana Sandwiches

Dan Clapson - Friday, December 14, 2012

December is always one hell of a month. After all of the holiday parties, dinners with friends, Christmas card writing and gift-wrapping, the last thing any of us want to do is spend time slaving away in the kitchen. And, especially not for a quick bite a lunch! We’ve got too much to do, right?

Of course, you could forsake your kitchen for a lunch out at a restaurant, but the holidays are pricey too, so I think it’s best to save your dollars where you can. A wise man (me) once said that the combination of peanut butter and banana could, quite possibly, be the most delicious thing in the world. Whether that’s true or not is up for debate. What I do know, though, is that adding some slices of crispy bacon to the mix makes for one hell of a tasty lunch.

Not that this one really needs a recipe, but, nonetheless, here it is…

What you’ll need…

8 slices bacon

8 slices white bread (keeping’ it classic, old-school all the way!)

2 bananas (1/2″ sliced)

peanut butter (the more the merrier!)


Fry up the bacon in a large frying pan until they’re nice and crispy. Place onto some paper towel to absorb any excess grease and to cool slightly. Toast all bread slices until they’re golden brown. Slather each piece with some peanut butter, top with sliced bananas and one piece of bacon. Combine slices into pairs, slice in half and chow down!

Always so simple and satisfying! PBBB Sandwiches for life!
