Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Sandwich

This sandwich turned out very well. It’s a lighter sandwich, made on the grill, which fits well with summertime. It is also fairly healthy when eaten in reasonable quantities.

Simple Honey Mustard


A simple recipe told to me by Jennifer which I then tweaked.

  • One third cup Dijon Mustard
  • One third cup honey
  • Two teaspoons of vinegar

Mix it up and adjust to desired taste and thickness. Very easy to make and it tastes fantastic.

Five Layer Peanut Butter Sandwich

I decided to do something different for this sandwich. I like peanut butter, so I made an all encompassing peanut butter sandwich with each layer representing an iconic sandwich. I recommend eating this with a tall glass of milk and doing some exercise afterwards.

Assembling the troops The completed sandwich

Messy but good

Layer 1: Grilled with Adams natural Peanut Butter, banana and honey. My aunt Connie called these Pooh Bears. Some people call them an Elvis or at least a variation of The Elvis.

Layer 2: Fluffernutter. Jif Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Whip. This was my first Fluffernutter.

Layer 3: Classic Jif peanut butter and Grape Jelly.

Layer 4: Nutella and Skippy Crunchy peanut butter

Layer 5: Cream cheese and Smucker’s Strawberry Jam on grilled bread

My apartment redecoration

The project that consumed my free time before I started making extreme sandwiches was my apartment redecoration. I think it turned out pretty good. It was inspired by the painting The Nighthawks by Edward Hopper.

Homemade Onion Rings

I take one yellow onion, slice off the ends and peel off the first couple layers. I then slice it into quarter inch slices. Then pop out the rings, usually toss out the middle pieces. whisk together the batter mix and the soda water. Coat the rings in dry flour and then dip them into the batter. Get a couple cups of vegetable oil nice and hot (medium-high) in a fairly deep pan on the stove. I use a wok. Toss in the onions and when the bottoms get golden brown, flip em over. After a couple more minutes, put them on a paper towel covered plate and throw in some more.

Spicy Turkey Bacon

My second sandwich, the Spicy Turkey Bacon. Cost about $25 to make and weighed about 4.5 pounds. Pictures didn’t turn out as well, I seem to have developed bloom lighting in my kitchen.
