Most people who know me are well aware of the fact that I collect cookbooks. (and jars but that’s a different post:) Some of you may have even helped me move my collection of over 300 cookbooks from time to time. ‘Ouch’ You might be wondering about right now, “Why?” I just have a thing for cookbooks! I can’t explain it either.

Gas Company Cookbook

I found this recipe for peanut butter bacon tidbit sandwich in a Wisconsin Gas Company Cookbook from 1971. The recipe was listed in the ‘appetizer’ section of the cookbook, which I thought was odd. Even though I was only around 13 in 1971, I never saw peanut butter bacon tidbit sandwiches on the buffet at a family party my parents dragged me too. Come to think about it, I’ve never seen peanut butter bacon tidbits on any appetizer table ever.

The Original?

My grandkids love those little peanut butter and jelly “uncrustables” sandwiches. I mean they flip over them. When I decided to make peanut butter bacon tidbit sandwiches and started to assemble them, the first thing that came to mind were those round uncrustables that my grandkids love so much. They’re basically the same thing, except for the opening in the top of the bread of the tidbit sandwiches. I wonder if the person who shared this simple sandwich appetizer knows that they may have possibly been the inventor of the original uncrustables.

Peanut Butter

Anyone who has read Turnips 2 Tangerines knows how much we love peanut butter. So it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that we loved these tidbit sandwiches. After all, what’s not to like? Peanut butter, bacon and honey equals yum. Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. Another favorite recipe made with peanut butter is this recipe for Ants on a Log Bagel Spread. My hubby and I love this dip/spread with apples, celery sticks and cinnamon raisin toasted bagels.
