Peanut Butter & Pickles Recipe | Snack Recipes | PBS Food

If you're going to see a space alien anywhere, it's Roswell. While there, I got to wondering: what do aliens eat? Well, when I heard about this sandwich recipe, I thought, this has just GOT to be alien food! I mean, peanut butter and pickles?



  • 2 slices of your favorite bread
  • Peanut butter
  • Pickle slices (like for a hamburger)


  1. Check with a grownup and wash your hands before you begin.
  2. Spread peanut butter on one side of two slices of bread.
  3. Cover one slice of peanut-buttered bread with pickles.
  4. Put the two slices of bread together (learn from my mistake and make sure the peanut butter is on the INSIDE when you do this).
  5. Clean up the kitchen before you enjoy your... no, that's not right. Clean up the kitchen before you force yourself to... no, that's too negative. Uh... okay: clean up the kitchen before you take a small bite, and test it out. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised! If it's good enough for aliens, it's good enough for me!
