Peanut Butter Hot Dog vegetarian snack peanut butter

No, I’m not making that face because it doesn’t taste good. I’m making that face because I’m disgusted with myself for not having discovered this sooner. On a recent car ride to Montreal, I had my normal supplies of peanut butter, bread and a few bananas. I was driving, so making a peanut butter banana sandwich would be difficult, even for my girlfriend, the passenger. Then, a stroke of brilliance: I asked my girlfriend Elisabeth to spread some peanut butter on the bread and place a half banana on top. I wrapped the bread up the sides and voila!, the peanut butter hot dog was born. This quick and delicious creation is a perfect snack on the go. Here is the ORIGINAL peanut butter hot dog, invented here on Jan 16th, 2008. Royalty checks can be made out to Peanut Butter Boy. I’ve also come up with a few alternatives to get your peanut butter and banana fix. Enjoy.

2-3T peanut butter (plain, cinnamon raisin or chocolate)
1 banana

Mexican Style
1 (8in) whole wheat tortilla
2T creamy peanut butter
1 banana
grape or strawberry preserves(optional)

Burrito: Spread peanut butter on one half of tortilla. Spread jelly on the other half, if using. Place banana on edge of the jelly or plain side and roll up. Consume, pack to go, or toast in a pan.

Quesadilla: Spread peanut butter on one half of the tortilla. Slice the banana into 1/4″ slices and arrange on top of the peanut butter half. Sprinkle chipotle or cayenne powder onto bananas if using. Fold tortilla over and spray the top with cooking spray. Place in a pan preheated on medium-high heat. Flip after about 45 seconds, or until toasted. After another 30 seconds, remove from pan and cut into four wedges. Dip into grape preserves or strawberry yogurt.

    I made this same discovery in my office once when all I had for lunch was one piece of bread, a banana, and some PB. I made the hot dog, but I was also able to steal some honey from another co-worker.

    One of my favorite snacks now.

    I discovered a very similar thing a while back when I came home from college one summer to find no food. All I found was some bananas, peanut butter and wheat hot dog buns. My “Dessert Hot Dog” was very similar to yours but with a drizzle of honey (ketchup?) and chopped raisins and nuts on top (relish?). I’ve told people about this and they think I’m crazy…

    Good, so I’m not alone! I made it out of desperation too but now it’s a staple snack food. Toppings rock on it, I need to explore the endless possibilities…. ~ Nick
