Gary's StoryGrilled Peanut Butter sandwiches were my staple breakfast fare through my high school years. along with a cup or two of Hot Postum cereal drink. My folks dis-allowed my indulgence in coffee. Postum is still available on the grocer's shelf.
Two and at times three sandwiches were sufficient to carry me through to lunch time. Growing boys can eat.
The addition of cooked bacon makes it doubly good. Some folks enjoy smearing a little Hellmann's or Miracle Whip on theirs.
And -- There is no reason you couldn't add a little jelly or jam. Though I don't.
My preference is to serve it on Hearty Rye Bread. Sourdough Bread could be my second choice.
For many years this has also been my preference for a late night snack, accompanied by a hot cup of Chocolate Malt Ovaltine. Soothing on the tummy and the nerves.

Wow this almost sounds like the sandwich my husband makes . . . he uses hot pepper jelly, peanut butter, and a piece of olive and pickle bologna lunchmeat. He swears it is out of this world! Must be a guy thing! LOL!
