I am 66 and have been eating this all of my life.. When I was a kid and was sick my Mom would grill a crunchy PB and mayo sandwich on plain ole white bread and serve it with a glass of icy cold milk. Today whenever I make one I want to put on my flannel jammies and wool socks so I can have this extreme comfort food.


I'll try anything with peanut butter because I love the stuff so much, but this just wasn't so good. Don't get me wrong I love applesauce too but I think these two things are best off separate....

The Hyphenated Cook

This is good, especially toasted. I kind of prefer apple butter (you can get it without sugar), but my kids liked this. They also liked having a little extra applesauce on the side to dunk the sandwich in. For those with wheat allergies, this translates well if you are using spelt bread--the spelt bread is able to withstand the extra moisture from the applesauce better than wheat bread.
