Peanut butter, pickles and potato chips sandwich. A combination that is weirdly delicious and addicting.I KNOW. I know. It's weird. But if you are an adventurous foodie at all, add this to your bucket list. And yes, you read it right… peanut butter… pickles… and potato chips. In a sandwich. This is why my blog is called trial and eater, no?

Also, I have an excuse for sharing it today because it is National Potato Chip Day (March 14). I'd say this is a creative way to celebrate.

Several months ago, I found a buzzfeed article with easy lunch ideas for work. I sent it to my then-boyfriend, and as we were scrolling through the list together we found ourselves secretly intrigued and drawn to this peanut butter/pickle sandwich concoction, originally published on Wonderland Kitchen. After admitting to each other that we both were curious to see what the fuss was all about, we promptly went to the grocery store to buy the ingredients.

All I know is the pickle jar was empty a couple days later, and I think we each had this sandwich 3-5 times in the following week.

Now, there is a guideline to what type of bread (rye, seeded, toasted), peanut butter (smooth), pickles (dill slices/chips) and chips (thick ridged variety) you buy, but I have tried it in several variations. Try it the main way and then branch out as you see fit.

There are several things that play off of each other here – the warm toasted bread with the cold pickles, the sweet and salty combination, and the crunch from the chips all make this a very unique meal, to say the least.

I also had to make this a few times just to get a decent picture out of it. It's surprisingly difficult to get a picture that makes this look as good as it tastes. But really just trust me. Maybe it won't end up being your absolute favorite thing, but at least you'll have a good story.

Peanut butter and pickle sandwiches were my second favorite sandwich as a kid and now, putting chips in my sandwich is a must. I can't wait to try this!
