Peanut Butter and ... ?

Recommended Posts

Fresh ground peanut butter on my favorite whole wheat bread http://www.vitalvittles.com 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.

right now i'm eating a peanut butter sandwich on home made whole wheat/rye sourdough toast... with the strawberry/green fig jam i made this afternoon. the added orange peel and crysallized ginger really kick up the jam. all o' that and the crisp romaine lettuce elevate the pbj beyond the mundane.

i like your idea of the chiles. about any variety of roasted peppers would be my suggestion. i may have to try that with some anaheim's i roasted recently. :biggrin:

fruit chutneys are really good paired with peanut butter and whole wheat/whole grain breads also.

How about sour green apples, or fresh berries?

When I was a kid, my best friend use to eat fried balogna and peanut butter sandwiches, though I wouldn't recommend it.

This sounds like an odd combination, but suprisingly, it's excellent!

Peanut butter with sundried tomato pesto (I like this on curry-naan from Trader Joe's).

We used to make sandwiches with peanut butter and nectarines. Your idea with chilis sounds like it would go well with this combination.

My husband says his dad used to eat peanut butter and mustard sandwiches. Sounds utterly revolting to me, but I know this is probably the only thread in which I'll have occasion to mention it, so there it is.

My mom used to do peanut butter with very thinly sliced sweet onions. I was never willing to try it, though.

Peanut butter and...

...mayo and sliced bananas

...thinly shaved red onion, and a bit of Sriracha

...chunky apple sauce (homemade, preferably, the stuff in jars is too smooth). Even better sprinkled with chopped salted nuts.

... sliced banana sprinkled with wheat germ, crushed cereal, or granola, great textural appeal, drizzled with honey, for awesomeness.

...bacon, honey. or Bacon and tomato slices. Or spread one side of a BLT with PB instead of mayo, but mayo the other side.

If you're tired of wheat bread, peanut butter on a hot, toasted onion bagel is one of my favorite weekday breakfasts. If you want to die a little sooner, butter the bagel lightly first, then layer on the PB.

Or, one I haven't tried, never will, but would be curious to see someone besides my stepmom eat: Peanut butter and spicy brown mustard on toast.

Stoner food: Peanut butter, Cocoa puffs, and marshmallow fluff. If you put it on wheat bread, you can call it healthy!

I love crunchy things with peanut butter, and crunchy peanut butter.

Duck confit and Tabasco pepper jelly.

It started as a home version of a sandwich at Bayona, and kept changing according to what I had in the house, and became ... peanut butter, duck confit, and Tabasco pepper jelly.

Peanut butter and cheddar cheese. Follow each bite with a swig of cold milk.

I like peanut butter and popcorn, though I've never had that combo with bread as a sandwich. The popcorn would add a nice bit of crunchiness, though!

Extra crunchy peanut butter and thinly sliced dill pickles on whole wheat bread

I read about these in Sue Grafton's mystery series 'starring' Kinsey Milhone, who eats them. Really rather good!

Has to be PB with 'nanas and honey.

Lightly toasted...even the King would approve. Some things can't be improved.

I adore Peanut Butter and Spanish Onion, as well as Peanut Butter and Bacon. Both, quite honestly, two of my favourite sandwiches. Try 'em if you haven't!

salty unsweetened peanut butter with orange marmalade. you must however, smear the marmalade side-with cold unsalted butter.

Nutella, baby! Are you in the East Bay? PB & N on Arizmendi Wednesday loaf. And it travels very well.

Crunchy peanut butter with marshmallows or marshmallow fluff and toasted coconut. Lightly grilled, if you have time. More of a dessert sandwich than a meal, but a delight any way you slice it.

Flutternutters.


I don't understand why rappers have to hunch over while they stomp around the stage hollering.  It hurts my back to watch them. On the other hand, I've been thinking that perhaps I should start a rap group here at the Old Folks' Home.  Most of us already walk like that.

Everyone once in a while I go for a Peanut Butter and Vegemite sandwich :sad:

It's a memory from my childhood, when we didn't have alot of money, and you did what you had to do ..... I guess in some ways it's comfort food :biggrin:

I would have to use unsalted PB with either Marmite or Vegemite.

Are you near a Trader Joe's? If so, pick up a jar of their Tomatoless Corn Salsa, which comes in a clear, kind of retro-label container. It's more of a sweet relish than a salsa, and it's crunchy and sort of spicy.

Perfect with peanut butter. Last year I was totally addicted to the combo.
