Colleen's notes for this recipe:
This is an unusual peanut butter sandwich that comes from New Orleans ancestors. We also have the ingredients on crackers. I grew up eating these sandwiches and crackers, my mother told me that her father made them for her... and his father made them for him...

It sounds strange... but is actually very good!

Gently spread a thin layer of peanut butter over two slices of bread. Next spread a thin layer of mayonnaise over the peanut butter.
Very thinly slice an onion and place the slices over the peanut butter and mayonnaise on the bread.
You can put the two pieces of bread together or have them as "open face" sandwiches. Cut on a diagonal and serve.

Hi Colleen! Its so funny that you posted this because I just tried a similar recipe from here, but it uses ketchup instead of mayo! I forgot to add the ketchup when I made it! lol! I liked it though! Here's the recipe Betty's Ritz Bites

I grew up eating peanut butter, Miracle Whip and lettuce sandwiches. Alot of friends think this sounds like a terrible combination, until they taste it.

Miracle Whip adds so much more flavor than mayo.

My husband has been eating PB, Mayo and Onion sandwiches since he was a little boy too!!! His family is from Canada. We both chuckled when I read your recipe because he has taken a ribbing about his "special" PB sandwiches for ever!! Thanks for sharing!
