You’ve got peanut butter on my…

24 May

It’s the Memorial Day weekend and many of us will be cleaning off the grill and firing it up. But what will you have that you haven’t had last year? And the year before that? Cheeseburgers. But not any cheeseburgers. It’s true, we all love burgers but somewhere, in the dark recesses of our minds, we secretly crave something more. A new twist to an old favorite. And, ironically, its in an old cookbook that I found the answer.

From Good Housekeeping’s Keep Cool Cookbook (published 1971) I found this…

Peanut Butter Burgers

Lean chuck, ground

White-bread slices

Peanut Butter

Cheddar-cheese slices

Shape hamburgers; then grill to desired doneness

Meanwhile, take 2 slices of bread for each hamburger; spread one lightly with peanut butter; top the other with a slice of cheese. When hamburgers are done, put together with hamburger as filling.

I used a Trader Joe’s Chicken Burger with my peanut butter this evening and can honestly say I’ll be pb-ing my burgers with consistency this summer.

And, while we’re on the topic of peanut butter, Vermont Peanut Butter is making some amazing pb concoctions. I’m ordering some Good Karma (dark chocolate with pb) at this very minute. Of course they do Creamy and Chunky for those peanut butter purists out there, but for the more adventurous types, you can also get Maple Walnut, White Chocolate or Cinnamon Raisin.

    Sounds REALLY good! I’ll have my Pb-burger with slices of banana instead of pickles. Thank you Elvis.
