This is probably so wrong.
And probably so right.
Putting meat on your favorite childhood sandwich and all.
And not just any meat. The best meat EVER.
I’ve made many more offensive recipes with bacon but I think this one takes the cake. Or at least takes the sandwich.
I don’t even get that expression anyway.
I swear though. If you are a member of the bacon-loving freak club like I am, and you love peanut butter and marshmallow, AND you love bacon on strange sweet things, this is for you.
And if you’re not, I guess we can still be friends. Just this one time. I respect it. Only because my mom, who is one of the biggest bacon loving people I know (hello giant jar of bacon grease hiding inside my childhood fridge) but also one of the biggest bacon purists I know, thinks that bacon in any sort of sugary manner or mixed with desserts is two words: dig. gusting.
I should probably question if I am her child. She doesn’t know what she is missing.
And if you think this is odd, let’s just go have a talk with my grandpa who still, to this day, eats peanut butter and pickle sandwiches.
I love me some pickles but I’d rather have the bacon any day.
I actually wasn’t that much of a fluffernutter fan back in the day. I don’t even think we really knew that it was a thing until my youngest brother started making them. Then, of course, I felt totally deprived because he got to do whatever the heck he wanted and I had to suffer the perils of being a first born.
He still gets to do whatever the heck he wants. Fair = not
With lots of leftover marshmallow fluff and zero need for more candy in this house, I needed some other excuse to finish off the fluffy goodness. Homemade fluff doesn’t last anywhere near as long as the stuff in the jar and it’s just so good that I was hesitant to waste what remained. Therefore I did what any normal human being would do… grab the peanut butter jar. And some toasted bread. If you need to know anything about me, anything at all, it’s that all of my bread MUST be toasted.
Except this time, I accidentally on purpose somehow found the bacon in my fridge and it them magically appeared in a frying pan and then oddly made a home inside of my sandwich.
But I mean, I guess I’d want to snuggle up to some peanut butter and marshmallow too. If we’re getting personal and stuff.
Toasty Bacon Fluffernutters
Yield: serves 2 appropriately, 1 obnoxiously
Total Time: 20 minutes
6 slices bacon, fried
4 slices whole grain sourdough bread
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup marshmallow fluff
Break bacon into pieces that will fit inside the sandwiches. Toast the bread either in a toaster or... in the leftover bacon grease in a skillet. Spread 2 slices of bread with peanut butter and the other 2 with marshmallow. Place the bacon on top of the peanut butter and press the sandwiches together. Slice in half and eat!
Oops? You should also maybe try chocolate peanut butter. Uh huh.
