I craved peanut butter and bacon toast while pregnant. Then I sampled a friend's peanut butter with chile pepper in it and loved it. The little zip made the sandwich better, and now I live on this peanut butter sandwich recipe. —Carolyn Eskew, Dayton, Ohio

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Need to cut some sugar? Opt for an all natural peanut butter.
  • Fry 2 lbs. or more of bacon at a time, drain the slices well, then freeze them. The slices don’t stick together, so it’s easy to remove a few from the bag for a sandwich or to crumble for a recipe.
  • Peanut butter lovers can't get enough of these creamy recipes.
