But which brand properly marks the inside and outside of the bread other than on the first and last slices? Every time I make PB&J, I’m running the risk of using the wrong side 50% of the time. On top of that, they also don’t indicate which one gets PB and which one gets J, reducing my chances of getting it right to 25%, unless I use only a single piece and fold it in half. However, then I have to wonder which half is which, making it 12.5% and by then I’m starting to think maybe grilled cheese would be less risky. But then I start wondering why it’s called grilled cheese when it isn’t the cheese that actually gets grilled? These are just a few of the great mysteries of the universe one contemplates when they get the munchies in the middle of the night while waiting for the next deal of the day to go live. And wouldn’t you know it, I’m all out of J so now I have to decide if I want to make a grilled PB & cheese.
@kuoh I think the “grilled cheese sandwich” is a cheese sandwich that’s been grilled. (it’s only thanks to the ambiguity of English that it sounds like the cheese has been grilled)
Sorry, I’m only able to answer one question. Not because I’m artificially limiting things (like Irk), but because I know only that one thing.
But if you went ahead with the grilled PB-&-cheese, I’d like to know how that turned out.
@kuoh@xobzoo I know someone who made a grilled pb-n-cheese. They said it was a little odd, and the PB got completely sopped into the bread so that the sandwich was kind of squishy on that side, but it was better than a lot of other experiments. But not as good as a grilled banana-slices-with-mayo sandwich. (I have some friends who have had to make do with very little at various times in their lives. This results in “desperation cuisine”.)
@werehatrack I could probably handle a grilled banana-slices-with-mayo sandwich. I would just leave the mayo out, and skip the grilling step.
(In other words, I think mayonnaise would be a lousy substitute for peanut butter in a banana sandwich.)
