Who Knew a Bacon, Jalapeño, Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Could Be Good? Patachou Does.
She was excited because of the unique sandwich, but also because of the related non-profit foundation the proceeds from the sale of the sandwich support. The Patachou Foundation was formed in 2013 with the primary goal of feeding children affected by homelessness. A laudable cause, for sure.
The sandwich ingredients themselves aren't unusual. Ample layers of peanut butter and jelly on wheat bread surround the plenty of bacon and thick cut slices of fresh jalapeños. Yes, there's a bit of heat to this sandwich, but the PB&J cools things down a bit. The couple glasses of water also helped. The sandwich also benefits from the classic sweet and salty combination created by the jelly and bacon.
I've never felt compelled to write about a sandwich before. But this Full Bellied Pig was a really unique experience. It was a surprisingly delicious experience. I hope it becomes a mainstay on their menu and I hope you try it.
