Peanut butter Mon, 10/4/04 10:00 PM (permalink)
I am mad as hell and I am not going to take it any longer!

We have an entire generation (the boomers) that was raised on peanut butter and we are heading into retirement and we still are not offered it in restaurants. How many times have you been in a place that had nothing left but marmalade? The reason they only have marmalade left is because no one eats it!

Why don't they have peanut butter in restaurants? I want to know!

We want peanut butter!

      Peanut butter is available here...but you have to pay extra for it. You can, however, have all the orange marmalade you can eat and then some for free.

      Make mine creamy Jif.

        I was in Lake Placid NY last weekend and had breakfast at a local diner and they had a holder on each table that held grape and strawberry jelly and little containers of Peter Pan peanut butter !! I was pleasantly surprised. It was greatly enjoyed on my toast !!

          I had an Uncle that like peanut butter so much that no matter how big a meal we had eaten, he always would get the saltines and peanut butter and make him a peanut butter cracker to finish up his meal. He would pass up dessert for his peanut butter crackers.

            I could live on peanut butter smeared on bananas. I was smearing peanut butter on Hershey Bars long before Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. Looking for a great comfort food? Try Smucker's Goober PB&J concord grape or strawberry right out of the jar on your favorite soup spoon.

              We need peanut butter instead of just jelly or preserves.

              Make mine Skippy Chunky. So good on bagels or toast.

                I have noticed that some of the hotels/motels thatwe have stayed at had packs of peanut butter along with their jelly at their Continental breakfasts.
                Peanut butter taste good on a toasted English Muffin or a bagel.

                    Cakes, here is an entire restaurant devoted to peanut butter:


                    I don't know what part of the country you're in, but perhaps this idea will spread (no pun intended)!

                        Due to business, the Sundancer always stays at a Marriott location. I have never been to one of these that they did not offer peanut butter for breakfast.

                        I hve always enjoyed it with a toasted English muffin with butter and peanut butter.

                          When i was in my atkins phase, i started buying the "just peanuts" peanut butter. It took a while to find one i liked, some were awful. (how can peanuts be so different??) I finally have ended up buying Smuckers natural peanut butter, and I like it a whole lot better than the kinds I used to eat.

                          When I am out with my kids, I always hide the honey and jams otherwise they would eat only those ...

                            I like peanut butter as well as almond and cashew butters, though I wonder why the topic is listed under "Breakfast"? I have had PB for breakfast and I do like it on toast.

                              The reason you don't see the widespread use of peanut butter is the allergy thing. Its a shame. I still deep fry with peanut oil.

                              I personally like the kind from the health food or bulk stores that is just ground peanuts. The brands are full of sugar and not a whole lot of the pure peanuts.

                                I saw a different suggestion in Taste of Home this month. This mother uses her left over hot dog buns and spreads peanut butter on both on the insides and puts a peeled banana in the hot dog bun. Her children think that this is a special treat. Sounds cute and a good way to used left over buns.

                                  I have been doing that for years, sometimes add nuts if it is creamy peanut butter or use Nutella or another fruit with my peanut butter...

                                    Ever had peanut butter popcorn??? I love it!! Melt butter in the microwave then add a few TB of smooth peanut butter, mix till combined and all melted togeather and pour over your popcorn. Want it spicy?? Add some tabasco to the mixture.

                                      This is another breakfast favorite of mine--peanut butter toast! I've tried the "just peanuts" peanut butters and also find Smuckers all-natural to be one of the better tasting brands. I've also tried almond and cashew butters and find them tasty as well, though don't like them as much as peanut butter. The cafeteria at work recently started offering small containers of Peter Pan smooth at breakfast.

                                      I am going to try some of the suggestions here--I've also been eating the peanut butter dabbed on fruit as a snack (it's excellent on apples!); I'd love that hot dog roll smeared with PB and then the whole banana!

                                          Peanut butter and Bananas is the BEST! I have a recipe for a peanut butter and banana cake. I haven't made it in a while, but if memory serves, it's a yellow cake (that might have peanut butter mixed in) with peanut butter frosting, with sliced bananas on top. Yum!

                                          When we were in San Diego a few years back, we went to a restaurant that served a burger called "the Elvis" which had, of course, peanut butter on it. Don't remember if it also had bacon, but it's distinctly possible.

                                            Peanut butter with marmalade is actually an excellent combination, particularly on a toasted english muffin or slice of english muffin bread, any wheat/grain variety and even pumpernickel. Similarly, peanut butter makes an excellent platform for apricot jam.

                                            It took me a long time to give up my Skippy Super Chunk, but I did it to avoid the high fructose corn syrup. Eventually I developed a taste for the natural varieties. As for cashew butter, try the one offered by Trader Joe's

                                              Sundancer, you are so right about peanut butter AND butter. Butter first, and, if it's 100% peanuts, take it outta the fridge to lose its chill for about an hour.

                                              Grilled Peanut butter? The Gizmo, a sandwich shop in the Student Union at Knox College in Galesburg, IL invented the grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Watch out for that hot jelly! The Gizmo also invented the patty melt, according to local legend.

                                              No, this surely isn't for breakfast, but please try my peanut butter soup:

                                              1 package Ramen instant noodles, any flavor or brand
                                              2 cups water
                                              2 heaping tablespoons of NON-100% peanuts peanut butter (Jiff, Skippy, or a house brand) and
                                              Miscellaneous Chinese seasonings, see below.

                                              Put 2 cups of water on to boil in a saucepan. Cut a tiny nick into the bag of ramen noodles and then crush with the base of your hand so the noodles are broken up. The nick lets air out so the bag doesn't "explode." Cut open the bag, remove the seasoning packet and add that to the water. Add the PB to the water. When the water comes to the boil, add the noodles and cook for the usual 3 minutes, stirring often and turning down the heat to avoid boilover. As the time runs out, add your favorite Chinese or Thai seasonings. I like plum sauce (about 1 tbs.) and hot chili sesame oil (about 1/2 tsp). The soup will thicken as it cooks into this nice creamy soup. I know this sounds awful, but if you love peanut butter, try it, you'll like it!

                                                I don't eat a lot of peanut butter, but when I do have some it has to be either crunchy or extra crunchy. I can't stand smooth/creamy peanut butter.

                                                My PB&J combination is extra crunchy PB and strawberry preserves or jam on white bread.

                                                I have a close friend who puts peanut butter and maple syrup on her waffles. She loves it, but just the smell of it almost drives me from the room!

                                                  I grew up on Nutella (Italian household).
                                                  The only way I can eat peanut butter is in chocolate/candy or in peanut butter cookie recipes.

                                                    I have eaten at many out of the way places-the only place I ever saw peanut butter packets on the table (beside the jelly) was at the Nugget Casino diner in Searchlight Nevada! I really enjoyed that on my toast!! Very pleasant little touch!!

                                                      my son who is 5 eats pnut butter and butter and cheddar cheese on toast for breakfast.
                                                      most restaurants that have a " kid" menus have penut butter on hand...

                                                          Hello, I'm new, but I joined awhile back. When I saw the peanutbutter topic, I had to post!!! I love JIF!!! That has been my all-time fav. I love the way it melts on warm toast!

                                                            All these posters have come and gone and nobody has mentioned the venerable Weidmann's (sp.?) Restaurant in downtown Meridian, Mississippi! This is a Roadfood destination of the first calibre! During World War II, butter was in short supply, so the eatery began serving peanut butter on tables. The tradition continues to this day. My friend Eelranch (a poster here) stopped off there twice; maybe he can be enticed to appear here (as if by magic) and tell y'all about it.
                                                            My favorite peanut butter is Kroger's Natural brand: the crunchy. If I save up an empty jar or two, I can join my local food co-op and buy crunchy natural peanut butter for far cheaper than even the Kroger stuff (which is on sale here as I write).
                                                            Another brand carried by Kroger is Carver Peanut Butter, in smooth or crunchy. While their "crunchy" is nowhere near as crunchy as I like, it contains just a little bit of dextrose, which I find adds to the taste: the level of sugars on the label indicates that it is no problem to me, unless I was to eat an entire jar in one sitting. It is made by a small independent manufacturer in Opelika, Alabama, and I am glad to see it.
