Peanut Butter, Banana, and Bacon Sandwich

The title says it all. It’s a mouthful of awesomeness. I have been wanting to make a bacon and peanut butter sandwich for my oldest kid for some time. I only wanted to make it because peanut butter and bacon are probably his two favorite things to eat. A peanut butter sandwich is packed in his lunch on a daily basis, and he probably dreams of bacon, he loves it so much. Unfortunately my oldest kid is going to have to wait for this sandwich to come around again, but my daughter, on the other hand, was fortunate to see this sandwich be created.

See, last week it was my turn to stay home with her as she was coming off a pretty bad cold. As she watched Strawberry Shortcut on television, and I worked remotely on my laptop at the kitchen table, lunch time was growing near. As I often scan the pantry and refrigerator for things to create, I remember how I had been wanting to make this sandwich, and I thought it would be a nice pick me up for my daughter. After all, she loved the classic peanut butter and banana sandwich, and she likes bacon (who doesn’t), so I decided she would be the one to devour this treat.

Peanut Butter Banana Bacon Sandwich

Let’s get started.

Ingredients:  [Print this Recipe] (Serves 2, or 1 if you are totally hungry)

  • 2 slices of good country white bread, 1/2 thick slices
  • 4 slices of Nueske’s bacon, cooked
  • 1 whole banana, sliced
  • Creamy peanut butter
  • Reserved bacon fat

Begin by taking a slice of the white bread, and brush on some of the reserved bacon fat from the cooked bacon (yes, I said it) on the outside of the slice.

Place one slice of the bread, bacon fat side down on a large skillet. Spread a decent amount of the peanut butter onto the slice of bread. Top with two slices of the cooked bacon, add the sliced banana on top of the bacon, then top with two more slices of bacon. Take a bit more peanut butter and spread on the remaining slice of bread, and place peanut butter side down on top of the bacon. Brush a bit more bacon fat on to the top of the bread.

On medium heat, begin making your sandwich. Keep an eye on the bottom by gently lifting it up to make sure you get a nice golden brown exterior. Once you achieve that, carefully flip it over, and cook on the other side until golden brown.

Remove it from the skillet, and plate it up.

Now if you have ever had a peanut butter and banana sandwich, well, this one tops that. For one, it is warm and creamy, and two, it has some wonderful, smoked Nueske’s bacon.

Biting into this sandwich yields nothing but excellence. An awesome  and crunchy exterior unveils this warm and creamy interior that when paired with the fruitiness from the banana and the smokiness from the bacon, well, make it, and you can see where I’m going with it. It’s just wonderful. A bit messy to eat, it is a great one to enjoy with a kid, and I believe this sandwich really cheered my daughter up.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.

  1. My goodness! I made this guilty treat for myself tonight after the kids went to bed. I used whole wheat bread, crunchy peanut butter, low sodium precooked bacon and ripe bananas. Since i had no bacon grease, I had to use liquid butter spray. This was sooo good. Thank you for sharing!
