Banana Sandwich

Thirty Four years ago I brought my young Bride from Denver, out to live with me on the farm. It took some getting used to each others traditions.
One morning she set a toasted sandwich in front of me. A banana sandwich. Not wanting to call into question her upbringing. I ate it as though it was a normal occurrence for me. Pretty good. We've had them, from time to time, since then.
Take two pieces of toast. Put mayo on one, with bacon. Put peanut butter on the other with long slices of banana on it. Slap those two together and enjoy. Weird, but good.

Weird is right. It's a downright sin to desecrate a perfectly good sandwich with mayo. The bacon, PB, and banana combo might not be so bad. I will give it a try SANS the mayo.

OK love the peanut butter and nanna but I am not sure of the rest!

That's a wacky combo

I'm not much of a sandwich eater but that combo doesn't sound good at all! I prefer pure unadulterated peanut butter right out of the jar on a spoon. Now that's good! Add a glass a milk and you gotta meal.

Bridgesetter: Why do you need a spoon? I find nothing wrong with scooping peanut butter out of the jar with a finger.

JD, sorry about the mayo, I shouldn't have mentioned it.
Dan, you know us too well.
To the rest, Try it, You'll like it.

Cliff, I have eaten a peanut butter and nanner sandwich for years. It's actually a breakfast staple for me when nothing else is around. But MAYO too? Yicckkkk. Toasted is cool.

When I was little my mom also added marshmellow whip to it (yummy then, really gross as an adult!)

I do believe it's a fine Southern, Elvis sort of food!

My dad used to eat PB and MW (Miracle Whip, not mayo) sandwiches and sneakily indoctrinated us kids into the cult, without telling us that whenever we were at a friend's house and asked for that for lunch, we'd get the weirdest looks. I mean *really weird* looks. No doubt that was one of the early causes for some of the current jiggles in my personality.

You could probably draw a line between MW and mayo people that no one on either side would ever cross.

Darn him anyway.

I bet if you check real close, your wife grew up using only mayonnaise without the peanut butter. This is the way a real banana sandwich should be made.

REAL southern backwoods nanner sandwiches are toasted bread, Miracle Whip or Mayo and banana, bacon optional. trust me they're the BEST. PB is good, but that's the yank way.
