• 2 slices of bread worthy of a masterpiece, preferably something slightly sweet and multi-grainy.
  • 1/2 cup (If no one is looking, make it more) freshly ground crunchy peanut butter, with salt.
  • 3 or 4 fluffy white marshmallows. Do NOT be misguided enough to use chocolate or strawberry; sometimes simple is better.
  • Enough Pickled Pink sweet pickle slices to cover one side of the sandwich, with a little space between each.


If you’re really lucky, you’re making this sandwich by a river in the woods, or on the beach, with a raging bonfire right in front of you. If you’re stuck in the kitchen, however, you can still roast your marshmallows by placing them on a baking pan and broiling them on the top rack of your oven. Turn marshmallows as they brown, being careful not to squish them. In the meantime, toast your bread. Spread peanut butter on both slices, then spread the gooey marshmallows on one side. Cover the other side with pickles and close. Trust that Elvis would be jealous.
