Peanut Butter Grilled Cheese vegetarian snack peanut butter main course

The new year is almost upon us – so what’s your New Year’s resolution? Since the world as we know it will end in 2012, your resolution this year better be a good one. How about: “To eat more peanut butter!” If so, you came to the right place. Keep my motto in the front of your mind so every time you grab something to eat, you’ll remember “everything is better with peanut butter.” How about starting off the new year with a unique twist on a classic. Adding crunchy peanut butter to a grilled cheese adds nuttiness, good texture, and more gooey goodness.

Ingredients:Peanut Butter Grilled Cheese vegetarian snack peanut butter main course Print Peanut Butter Grilled Cheese vegetarian snack peanut butter main course Save

2 slices whole wheat bread
1 or 2 slices American cheese
2T crunchy peanut butter w/ salt
1t butter

Directions:

Spread peanut butter onto one slice of bread, then top with cheese and remaining slice of bread. Spread half of the butter on one side of the sandwich and place the other half in a small skillet. Heat the skillet on medium heat. When the butter is melted, place the sandwich (un-buttered side down) into the skillet and cover with a lid. Flip when the bottom is brown and crispy, about 2 minutes. Cover and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

    I’ve heard of this many time but never actually done… I just may now give it a try man!

    • Nick says:

      Good. Do it! You’ll like it.

  2. Melleah says:

    This looks fantastic! My favorite sandwich is a grilled PB&J, but I will have to try your PB&C(heese).

    • Nick says:

      Do it, it’s surprisingly not gross!

  3. Julia Dawn Mason says:

    After I get paid tomorrow, I will have to try it.

  4. Wow, cool idea! I’m sure my son would love it.
    Glad I found your site – I am a peanut addict myself. Let me know what you think of the peanut flour!

    Wishing you the best in 2011!

    • Nick says:

      You as well! If you have any special peanut butter recipes or uses let me know!

      I’m using the peanut flour a lot so far, mostly for protein shakes but also for crepes, a recipe I’ll post soon.

    add some banana slices and you’ve got a great nostalgic treat! love it.

    • Nick says:

      That sounds like a whole bunch of craziness Bren, I may have to try it! Now – what about a peanut butter flan?

  6. ryan says:

    eat it in 1 mouthful

    • Nick says:

      I think that might cut the roof of your mouth, but hey, give it a shot.

  7. I can imagine this being quite dreamy indeed!

    • Nick says:

      It’s quite unique – you gotta try it!

  8. yummm….
    I just found your blog today and I have enjoyed reading thru all the recipes-
    I used to eat a sandwich growing up with PB, cheese and bacon. Not too healthy but oh so good together!!

    • Nick says:

      Mmm, bacon sounds like a good addition. I thought I was the only one crazy enough to mash peanut butter and cheese together – it’s great to find another freak =)

    Honestly I loved Peanut Butter and Cheez Whiz on toast for years. Even in a Sandwich. Never buy Cheez Whiz anymore so I haven’t had it in a while. But I sometimes do english muffin topped with peanut butter and sliced cheese. Pretty good but not as good as Cheez Whiz! This version looks good too!

    • Nick says:

      Wow, Cheez Whiz? Sounds crazy enough to work! If you don’t plan to buy Cheez Whiz than I suppose this is your second best option?

      You know what kind of tastes like Cheez Whiz? Those cheese balls/logs you can get. I just got one the other day that’s a spreadable cheddar cheese and coated in sliced almonds. Tastes surprisingly like Cheez Whiz – I’ll have to make a PB&C with it!

  10. pete says:

    I like the peanut butter melted on the toast, then fresh cheese thinnly sliced in the middle afterwards – the difference in texture/temperature adds an extra dimension to a toasted sandwich

    • Nick says:

      Wait, so you’re saying that you toast the bread first, then spread on the peanut butter, then place cheese on top of the peanut butter, assemble, and toast the whole thing again in a pan?

  11. pete says:

    no, i meant keep the cheese unmelted

    • Nick says:

      Interesting.
      1. Toast 2 slices bread
      2. Spread peanut butter onto one/both
      3. Fresh sliced cheese in the middle
      4. Consume?

  12. pete says:

    Yeah, Thats the one! Not as messy or sickly as the full-on melted behemoth.

  13. Rob says:

    Been wanting to try this, do you think muenster cheese would be tasty? or cooper sharp (my fav!)..

    food for thought: I eat tuna/peanut butter sandwhiches everyday, PROTEIN! :D

    • Nick says:

      Definitely! Any cheese would be delicious!

      Just canned tuna and peanut butter on bread? Nothing else? That sounds rather dry….

  14. Anne says:

    peanut butter and cheese (especially orange cheddar cheese) on a bagel are great. Another really good one is peanut butter and cream cheese on a bagel or toast.

    • Nick says:

      Peanut Butter and cream cheese? I’ll have to try that one next!
