This is a big, messy sandwich that sounds quirky but is delicious! Great for warming up in the fall and very kid-friendly. The proportions of this recipe are approximate, and feel free to change them to suit your needs. The bacon provides saltiness, the jelly provides sweetness, the apple provides tartness, and the cayenne pepper the spiciness. However, including all ingredients provides a more complex range of awesomeness.

  • Spread the peanut butter onto two slices of bread; set aside. Spread the apricot jelly onto the remaining two slices of bread, and sprinkle with cayenne pepper to taste. Arrange half of the cooked bacon and half of the sliced apple onto each apricot jam-covered bread sliced. Top with the peanut butter smeared pieces of bread.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spread the butter over the outside of the sandwiches and place into the preheated skillet. Cook until golden brown and crispy, then turn the sandwiches over, and continue cooking until golden brown on the other side, about 4 minutes per side.

It was okay. Even though my kids like all the elements that went in it they didn't like them together. They said is was all squished together. Read More

Very good. A husband pleaser for sure. We used Dave's blues bread to make it a little healthier and I think that made it even yummier! I liked the spicy after-taste. Read More

OMG! I love apples bacon and especially peanut butter but never would have thought of this combination in a grilled sandwich! This was oh so goey and good. It was a great blend of sweet and salty with just the right amount of spice from the cayenne. It definitely gives your taste buds a work out. I used thick sliced whole grain bread but whatever bread you use this is bound to be delicious. This is definitely a case of don't knock it 'til ya try it! Read More
