Sweet and Spicy Peanut Butter-Bacon Sandwiches

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.

      New favorite breakfast sandwich, minus the cayenne pepper. I love spice but 1/8 tsp was too much for four slices of bread (in my opinion) so If you want the spice I'd recommend using half of the 1/8 measuring. Absolutely delicious, even though Thomasville Cinnamon Raisin bread will forever be in my house now lol.

      Throw it in a skillet with some butter to crisp up the outside then sprinkle a bit of dark brown sugar on it as it comes out.

      I didn't have cinnamon-raisin bread, so I improvised! I usually sprinkle my peanut butter toast with cinnamon and hot pepper so I just sprinkled on a few raisins after toasting some sprouted grain bread. I had some leftover cooked bacon to use, also. Oh, my was a mouthful of pleasure. I made the toast "open faced" so cut down on the bread. Will definitely keep this method of peanut butter toast!
