Peanut Butter and ... ?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Fresh ground peanut butter on my favorite whole wheat bread (Vital Vittles) is a favorite sandwich. I'll sometimes add banana, or possibly shredded carrot, maybe even some thin fruit slices or orange zest, some nuts like sunflower seed. I may try some chile peppers later today. What other combinations can you think of? I'm looking for some new ideas to kick up a peanut butter on whole wheat sandwich.

my brother in law told me about his fave sandwich and i reeled at the idea of it, but crunchy peanut butter and sliced, sweet pickled beetroot with a light sprinkle of salt is an amazing sandwich...promise

I'm a sucker for crunchy PB with wipped honey.

I also dig crunchy PB with bacon and jalepeno.

Ditto the honey.

Could try it with alfalfa sprouts....grated celery...mung bean sprouts

Bacon... bacon... bacon. What else would a nice (Reform) Jewish girl ask for? :lips: Peanut butter and lettuce sandwiches were a favorite in my school lunch box.

When I was a kid, Mom made "Hawaiian Sandwiches" which were always a fave-

Toasted whole wheat with peanut butter
a slice of pineapple
mild cheddar

then melted in the toaster oven

Yum

Besides PB and bacon, I also like an open-faced PB and raisins or PB and sliced tomato.

When I eat a banana I like to put a little peanut butter on before each bite.

Pancakes with peanut butter and molasses syrup, yum.

Peanut butter on whole wheat bread, warmed in the microwave.

Or just a big spoon of plain peanut butter.

The peanut butter itself has to be made with just peanuts and salt, otherwise I don't care for it.

Indonesians make yummy peanut sauces for lots of things, some with hot chiles, some mild. Hot red chiles go great with peanuts. Gado-gado dressing is used on salad and it's not hot--I had a variation with cashew butter as well as peanut, yum. They take some of the oil out of the peanuts for their sauces.

Peanut Butter &...

ok, we are missing the obvious... all I ate all the way through high school (a hundred years ago) was peanut butter & fluff toasted so it all melts together & has the crunch of the toast... pure heaven! Why don't I eat that anymore? Oh yeah, the sugar, fat & calories.
Sounds like tonights dinner though!:D

Tessa - you beat me to it! Crunchy PB with chopped dates - yummers!!! I just remembered that one, scrolled thru, and you already got it...too quick for me! Can add a bit of homey to that too.

My kids went thru a stage where they liked smooth PB with sliced processed cheese <shudder>...they grew out of it

DC, you like homey eh, but with peanut butter? :D
post #17 of 23
hi DC i wondered if that was a southern hemisphere thing:beer: when i read your post

i was just thinking of things that are good with pb and bread but also some more ideas have come to mind

chocolate peanut butter truffles mmmmmmmm
works well with dark choc and really well with white choc

add peanut butter (especially crunchy) to a fudgy chocolate brownie mix, or to a chocolate fudge sauce and serve with a really good vanilla icecream

soften some vanilla icecream just a little bit(so its easy to mix but not thawed) , or make icecream from scratch and add crunchy PB and a little chocolate liquer and then put back in freezer untill firm and serve with baked apples

Tessa, I like the ideas with the icecream. PB goes so well with sweet things. Gonna try that!

P.S. homey = honey (typo) NOT Homer Simpson :) not sure about the fluff

It's a marshmallow concoction used to make a "fluffernutter" sandwich.

Be sure you are on good terms with your dentist if you plan to eat these often!
