I’m a bit sad about this one. I really needed to get my butt in gear and submit a recipe to the Global Cookbook. This was a project that was put together by the fine folks at FuelMyBlog. The book is in and the are giving away 10 copies. The book was made through Blurb and if you wanted to purchase one you could do so by going to The Global Cookbook on Blurb.
The great thing about FuelMyBlog is the global feel of the site and the blog, Kevin and Sylvie are such wonderful people and as I was starting out as a blogger they helped me so much. With this book they are helping others. The Proceeds from this book will go to Stop Hunger so not only you will have a unique cookbook but you will also be helping this amazing charity.
Had I actually gotten my butt in gear and submitted a recipe I wonder if I would have given out my Fry Sauce one, My Grilled Peanut Butter and Pickle one or my Poor Man Truffle’s one.
I finally did it, I made myself a Peanut Butter & Pickle Sandwich. I had read about this on Jenn’s blog Jenn Cooks and while it kind of grossed me out, it also intrigued me a bit. I wondered, how would a sandwich of this nature taste. And I knew that if I made it I would grill it. For some reason having a crispy grilled sandwich of Peanut Butter & Pickles made sense. So I had Allison pick up my favorite Chunky Peanut Butter (It is a major brand that I love, Jif (no I was not paid to say that)). I also had some pickles from a previous Pulled Pork dinner that I wanted to use.
I got the ingredients ready…
I got my Two Pieces of Bread
Piled on the Peanut Butter
Both pieces of bread now slathered with Chunky Peanut Butter.
Add the Pickles
Add some butter…
Oh yeah I kicked it up a notch with some butter because…
… because I made my peanut butter and pickles sandwich a "grilled" one.
.. and delicious as Alton Brown would say.
Add some chips and a tall glass of milk…
My lunchtime dining concoction is complete and ready to eat!
The First Bite.
I did not know what to expect but I have to say… the chunky peanut butter and the pickles and the fact that the sandwich was grilled made a perfect taste sensation. It was delicious!
This sandwich didn’t stand a chance, I barely stopped to take this picture, it was so good.
The Last Bite
My last Bite of the Grilled Peanut Butter and Pickle Sandwich. I have to say it was surprisingly tasty and I would certainly make it again.
