I was making a PB & J and I buttered my bread - jelly side.

Do you butter your bread when you make a sandwich???

All sandwiches or just some?

Never on a regular sandwich.

The only time I butter bread is when I'm making garlic bread, toast, or grilled cheese.

I vaguely remember buttering the bread when making sandwiches as a kid, but now it's only when I make grilled cheese. I know my mom never put mayo on sandwiches. I guess she used butter so the bread wouldn't dry out, and I learned to do it from her.

My mom never did this, but my step-dad did... he buttered every sandwich he made...

That's how I came to butter my PB & J... I don't do it on bologna or salami or anything else...

FWSO was curious, because he's seen it done, but never knew why.

I never liked sandwiches when I was growing up. I had to take them to school, but I never ate them (shhh-don't tell mom... ) If I recall, though, I think my father always buttered his sandwiches. I don't think mom did. However she used to send us to school with such disgusting things like sardine sandwiches and cream cheese & olives Butter would have been the coup de grace

Parkay(or Nucoa at Grandma's) on both pieces of the white bread helps keep the mustard and sweet pickle relish from soaking through and keeps the 'Merican cheese from sliding. Just add baloney(rich kids had bologna), salamie or processed ham product and life is complete.

Careful!

That's a patented technique. Seriously.

They figured out how to put PB&J sandwiches in vending machines. The problem was the jelly bleeding through the bread.

They butter the bread, and it stops it.

That's what I heard, anyway.

But but but - all you have to do is put a thin layer of PB on BOTH pieces of bread, and then the jelly goes in the middle.

Why sully the perfection of a PB&J with another B???

What's wrong with Parkay Empress?

...all you have to do is put a thin layer of PB on BOTH pieces of bread...

With all due respect my Lady, your logic is flawed since a proper PBB&J absolutely requires at least a half of a jar of PB, B and J per sandwich.

Heresy. Next thing you know, you'll be saying you use crunchy PB.

I have no words to describe the pity I feel for your never having experienced a *proper* PB&J.

Oh, I have to jump in now, NIK! Proper PB&J include EXTRA crunchy PB. Anything less is...well...saddening.

It beats me how you guys can eat PB & J sandwiches.

In Oz we don't do that. We CAN'T do that.

Me I'd just go with the butter and jam

OR

The butter and peanut butter

Not much help am I??

I agree with Heart. Extra crunchy PB is the way to go.

I put butter on sandwiched that get butter such as frilled cheese or fried eggsandwiches or something like that. I never thought of buttering a sandwich to spread something else over the butter (although I will add jelly to my already buttered toast that I get from a restaurant).

Peanut butter, jelly, butter and bacon....

I do not, but know a lot of people who butter the jelly side to keep it from seeping thru.

I use butter for grilled cheese, PB&J, and leftover Thanksgiving turkey sandwiches. Almost all other sandwiches require mayo.

No Miracle Whip, either. It's just not the same as mayo.

See, the problem is that ALL of y'all are doing it wrong.

There is no "jelly side" if you make a PB&J properly. We mix the peanut butter and jelly and then glop it on the bread. You can get more of the good stuff that way.

I will say that I think I'm the only person who does this though. I've never met anyone else who mixes before spreading.

Aw hell! I did say that. Now I gotta come up with a frilled cheese sandwich design. And I can't even blame my i-Phone autocorrect for that one. I wrote it on my computer.

I agree with you jrc - Miracle Whip is way better than Mayo.

Did anyone else grow up eating "ham buns"? Basically a ham and butter sandwich on a dinner roll. It's about equal parts ham and butter (or rather margarine).

My mom used to wrap them in tinfoil. I don't know why, since we ate them cold.

Nope, but I do like the BBQ pork buns on the Dim Sum menu. They are kinda like Boston Creme made with a bun instead of a donut, and filled with BBQ pork instead of creme, and without the chocolate because I am sure even the wimmenz will agree that chocolate would be inappropriate.

The only time we ever put butter on a sandwich was for a tomato sandwich. Basically just bread, butter and slices of tomato with salt.

I thought it was weird the first time I saw my mom make one, but I have to admit, I love them.

Oh gosh I have a semi funny story about butter on a sandwich. I don't eat mayo, mustard or miracle whip. I love butter on a sandwich. We went to this great Italian deli and I ordered salami, prosciutto and provolone with lettuce on a hero. Then I said I wanted butter on it. The following is what happened (you must imagine this in a NY Italian accent):

Deli worker 1: Butter!? Butter? Do we have butter?

Deli worker 2: what do you need butter for?

Deli worker 1: she wants it on her sandwich. She wants butter!

Deli worker 2: Butter!? Butter!?

Deli worker 3: (coming out from the back) What's going on?

Deli worker 1: She wants butter on her sandwich!

Deli worker 3: Butter!?

At this point according to SO I was hiding behind him, cheeks bright red. He asked if they had pesto, which they did and thus my love of pesto on a sandwich was born. I was teased mercilessly by SO and his cousin saying butter with bad imitation accents...sigh.
