Peanut Butter-Banana Sandwich #recipe—Southern Style

Beloved of Southern folk—a quick, lunch staple

pbbansandw1. Slice then mash 1 banana.

2. Add a tablespoon of peanut butter—this is to taste.

3. Mix—here’s where it varies from Southerner to Southerner.

I add a tablespoon of mayonnaise into the mix. Why? Because that’s how my mother and grandmother made it. My aunt Grace doesn’t add this step. So again, this part is up to you.

4. Spread mixture on bread or just eat as-is off the plate.
