I’ve paired peanut butter with some pretty strange things that turned out to be awesome. Such recipes include Peanut Butter with Eggs, Peanut Butter and Tomatoes and of course, Peanut Butter and Buffalo Wing Sauce. Along those lines, I bring you another seemingly-odd combination for the latest Express Eats installation, Peanut Butter and (cold) Cheese. This one was suggested by a reader, and while I was skeptical at first, one bite had me pleasantly surprised. This is a perfect protein-loaded midday snack or appetizer for a formal gathering (sure to start conversation). Be sure to pair the cheese and peanut butter so neither one is stronger in flavor than the other. If you really want to get fancy, sprinkle some sea salt or crumbled bacon on top.
1 tsp peanut butter (natural, with no added sugar)
1 slice mild cheddar cheese (I used 75% RF Cabot)
1. Spread peanut butter on cracker.
2. Top with slice of cheese.
