Grown-Up Peanut Butter, Jimtown Spicy Pepper Jam, and Bacon Sandwich
Certainly not the lunch box offering of your youth, this sandwich made with peanut butter, Jimtown Spicy Pepper Jam, and bacon, is one of Jimtown fans' favorite guilty pleasures. With its intriguing combination of sweet, hot, tangy and smoky flavors this sandwich requires a big glass of cold milk, or a local pilsner. Makes a great breakfast too.

|4 tablespoons||Jimtown Spicy Pepper Jam|
|4 tablespoons||Natural peanut butter, smooth or crunchy *|
|12 strips||Good-quality bacon, cooked crisp and still warm|
|4 large||Red lettuce leaves, optional|

Spread 1 side of each of the other 4 pieces of toast with the peanut butter, dividing it evenly and using it all.
Lay 3 strips of bacon over each of the 4 pepper jam-covered slices of bread.
Top the bacon with the lettuce, if you are using it.
Set the peanut butter-covered slices of toast in place. With a serrated knife, cut the sandwiches in half diagonally and serve immediately.
* Variation: For a completely different but equally delicious sandwich, replace peanut butter with fresh goat cheese or room temperature, stabilizer-free cream cheese.
