I had an interesting bacon discovery recently!
A friend handed me a peanut butter and jelly sandwich mid-afternoon, one that his wife had packed for him as a snack. Hey, how can one refuse a PB and J , especially at such an opportinity? I took a big bite, wondering what the jelly component just might be… as variety is indeed the spice of life, with a few exceptions of course, as the married among us will most certainly attest- discovering what kind of sweet sticky goodness is nestled inside that PB&J is great fun.
There was something splendidly different, savory, and chewy in that sandwich. Bacon!!!
I had never heard of such a combination, especially in the die hard staple, the peanut butter and jelly. That is, until now. Those savory strips of pork are wonderful in there, i must proclaim.
As a cyclist, cramming all sorts of calories down my neck is routine, often to the amusement of the wife and children. As a result, plenty of novel commestibles have found their way to the Bobster. Never tried bacon in a PB&J before. Come to think of it, that American favorite, adding melted cheddar to a slice of apple pie, hasn’t either. Bringing myself to modifying that classic blend of apples, sugar, cinnamon, and flour has always seemed sacrilegious…
Well, would bacon work in apple pie? The sweetness is just about right, come to think of it.
