Yes, you read that right…Peanut Butter, Mayonnaise and Lettuce Sandwich. How can something that sounds so wrong, taste so right.
(Often made with Miracle Whip instead instead of mayonnaise – my personal favorite)
I grew up on this and haven’t had one since I was about 10 years old. This was one of my grandparents’ favorite sandwiches. I was told this sandwich was born during the Great Depression and became a family favorite.
I did a little research and found a great list of meals on The Survival Mom, that were born during the Great Depression. It’s a fun read.
What strange family food did you grow up with?
This afternoon I took a trip down memory lane and made one. It was pretty darn good, but could never compare to the ones made in my grandparents’ kitchen.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
