Pain de Campagne with Crunch Time peanut butter, romaine leaves, anchovies, and croutons.
I have a small obsession with a good peanut butter sandwich. There's nothing wrong with a simple slather between two pieces of bread, but I'm always excited to jazz things up. 10 of my favorite peanut butter sandwich combos can be found over at Ohdeedoh. The fine folks over at Peanut Butter & Company have a few more ideas, too, and they're a little more, how shall we say, bizarre — but beautiful!
Lee Zalben, the founder of Peanut Butter & Co., has been doing his best to twist the traditional concept of a peanut butter sandwich while still keeping it familiar and tasty. This past year he decided to make a new sandwich a day and some of the results were recently shown at a 3-day pop-up shop gallery opening in New York City.
While some of his sandwich creations leave me running for the kitchen (or even the grocery store), others will bring you to a full stop and have you scratching your head and asking, "Huh, wonder if that's any good?"
Pictured above are five of the creations. You can see more over at the Peanut Butter & Co Tumblr. It's packed with all sorts of interesting creations including a towering honey open-faced piece and one made with donuts as bread!

Check out the captions above to find out what's in each creation. Which one looks like your favorite? I know you're all dying to try a big bite of bread coated in pixie sticks, filled with lime curd — oh yeah, and peanut butter of course!
