Kinsey Millhone’s Famous Peanut Butter & Pickle Sandwich (Sue Grafton)
I’ve received letters from readers who are completely aghast at the notion of eating this culinary wonder. Others actually try it despite their misgivings. Once recovered, these same readers confess that it’s not half bad. Strangely yummy, they say. Some take a jauntier attitude and begin to try improvements, which Kinsey and I are quick to discourage.
I should point out that Kinsey eats more of these than I do since she’s (almost) entirely fictional and doesn’t gain weight.
The following is the actual, true, uncensored recipe.
YIELD: 1 SANDWICH
Jif Extra Crunchy Peanut Butter (no substitutions, please)
2 slices Health-Nut Bread, or some whole grain equivalent
6 or 7 Vlasic Bread & Butter Chips (again, no substitutions or we can’t be responsible for the results)
1. Spread gobs of the peanut butter on one slice of bread
2. Place bread and butter chips on the peanut butter.
3. Top with second slice of bread and cut on the diagonal.
