Today is National Fluffernutter Day. I know you didn't know. That's why I'm here: to impart random, sometimes questionable, food news upon your docile soul.
So, a fluffernutter is a sandwich made with peanut butter and marshmallow spread. (Did you just do a gag reflex?) So, of course this has been done 8 ways to Sunday, (I mean, seriously: every which way).
There are several ways to approach a proper fluffernutter, the first being to re-record your voicemail to say, "Sorry, I can't answer right now. I'm making a fluffernutter sandwich for national fluffernutter day. I'll call you back when it's not fluffernutter day. Now, go make a fluffernutter."
That way you get to say "fluffernutter" four times (you could work in more if you tried) and other people will hear you say it (now we're in bonus round points).
I'd start with some nice whole-wheat bread, lay on some crunchy peanut butter for texture, then some of those fancy all natural marshmallows (I'm 86ing the spreadable junk). I might be inclined to add a layer of Nutella in there, but that would soil the pureness of the straight fluffernutter. But, it does beg the question, when is nutellanutter day? Well, why not?
Finally, I'd liberally butter the outsides and toast to a golden brown allowing all the flavors to coalesce. Here are eight other ways:
1. Fancy stacked fluffernutter on ciabatta bread.
2. The healthy fluffernutter.
3. Have a staring contest with your cat, Fluffernutter
4. Cookie Fluffernutters!
