Intro: How to Make a Peanut Butter & Pickle Sandwich
I know what you're probably thinking right now; "Ew! A peanut butter & pickle sandwich? GROSS!" However, all I have to say is, don't knock it till you try it. Peanut butter & pickle sandwiches are actually quite delicious. I will now show you the proper way of making this awesome sandwich.
Things You Will Need:
- Bread (whichever kind you prefer)
- Peanut Butter (crunchy or creamy; doesn't matter)
- Pickles (whichever kind you prefer)
- Butter Knife (for spreading the peanut butter on the bread)
- Sharp Knife (for cutting he pickles)
- Toaster (optional; if you want to toast your bread first)
Step 1: Toast Your Bread
Technically, this step is optional (but I highly recommend doing this step to optimize the deliciousness of the sandwich).
Before you begin, you want to make sure that your toaster is plugged into a working outlet. And if you would like to butter your bread, make sure you do that after you toast it!
Now you are ready to toast your bread. Grab both your slices and place them in the toaster. You can toast your bread whichever way that you prefer. Unless you like to burn your toast. Don't do that, it's gross.
Step 2: Lay Your Slices Side by Side
Now that you’ve finished toasting your bread (unless you for some reason skipped that step), grab it from the toaster. Make sure you use caution; the toast can be very hot. Place both slices on a flat surface (i.e. a plate) side by side.
Step 3: Spread Peanut Butter on Both Slices
This next step is super important; unless you just want to make a pickle sandwich, then I guess you can just skip this step. It is time to put some peanut butter on your bread. Open the jar of peanut butter and put as much peanut butter as you would like on your butter knife. Now spread the peanut butter across one slice of bread. Once you are finished, repeat for the second slice.
Step 4: Prepare Pickles for Your Sandwich
Put your sandwich off to the side; we’ll come back to it in a minute. This step is when you’ll need the pickles and the sharp knife. Grab a few pickles out of the jar (pro tip: I usually end up using about 4 pickles), and place them on a surface to cut them (pro tip: I use the plate that I use for my sandwich). Then, using the sharp knife, you need to cut the pickles in half (I recommend cutting them the same way shown in the video; otherwise, your sandwich will be lumpy and weird).
Step 5: Place Pickles on Your Sandwich
This is another really important step; your sandwich won't turn out right if you do this wrong. You need to carefully lay your newly sliced pickles on top of one of your peanut butter covered bread slices. With this step, it's kind of like you are playing Tetris™, you need to fit the pickle slices together so they don't hang awkwardly over the side of your sandwich.
Step 6: Complete Your Sandwich
Now for the final step. When you finish this, you will have a delicious peanut butter & pickle sandwich. You need to grab one of the slices of bread (I recommend grabbing the one that doesn't have the pickles on it; it'll make this a lot easier). Flip it over so the peanut butter side is down. Now gently place it on top of the other slice of bread. And voila! You now have a completed peanut butter & pickle sandwich. Enjoy!
