Today, April 2nd, is one of the most joyous holidays of the year: National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day! To celebrate, feast your eyes on this. No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, that’s only one sandwich. A jam-packed (literally) monstrosity, but a sandwich nonetheless. How did this happen? In short, I ran out of meat. I woke up and realized I had no turkey in the fridge, thereby unable to make a turkey sandwich. As with all things in life, peanut butter came to the rescue. But a single peanut butter and jelly sandwich isn’t a big enough meal for the Peanut Butter Boy. Two peanut butter and jelly sandwiches could work, but that’s too much bread. So I used my engineering knowledge to create this monument of a sandwich to maximize peanut butter consumption relative to the number of bread slices.
Spread the Honey Roasted Peanut Butter on one slice of bread. Spread the apricot jelly on one side of another slice of bread and put the two slices together. Spread the strawberry jelly on the newly formed sandwich and top with banana slices. Spread the plain peanut butter on the last slice of bread and place on top. Cut in half normally or diagonally if you’re feeling adventurous.
Get creative with this one. There wasn’t much rhyme or reason to my sandwich except that I wanted every layer to be unique and contribute a different texture. I’d love to see some of your suggestions/creations/pictures for the ultimate double decker peanut butter sandwich.
