Variation of peanut butter sandwich is simply appealing
Potato chips add crunch, peanut butter and honey add salty-sweet elements to the combination, and bananas softly blend it all together.
The bread enfolding this sandwich that has something for everyone can be rather special, too: Try buttermilk or potato bread, or slices from a favorite whole-wheat loaf if that's what's in the pantry. Just layer on the fillings. The sandwich takes very little else to put together, to serve as a snack at home, or to tuck into lunch boxes or picnic baskets.
Peanut Butter Honey Crunch Sandwich
1 cup peanut butter (see note)
1/2 cup honey
8 slices buttermilk or potato bread
24 to 32 potato chips
2 bananas, peeled and thinly sliced
In a medium bowl, mix together peanut butter and honey until thoroughly combined. Spread equal amounts of this mixture onto one side of each slice of bread. Top half of the bread slices with 6 to 8 potato chips, pressing them lightly into the peanut mixture, so that they adhere. Top the other half of the bread slices evenly with banana slices, again pressing them lightly into the peanut butter.
For each sandwich, press together a potato-chip-covered slice with a banana-covered slice,
Makes 4 sandwiches.
Note: A creamy, natural-style peanut butter blends in well for this recipe, but any kind you have at hand will be fine.
