I would suggest replacing margarine with butter as surely no-one has margarine anymore.

i don't know how you've managed to make peanut butter on toast look so unappetizing but i enjoyed some of the comments!

This is easily the best recipe on goodfood. Quite tricky but after a few attempts I think I've finally got the hang of it. It's now a staple in our house, thank you.

I would like to try this recipe, but am worried, as it seems a tad complicated. On the plus side, who said peanut butter is savoury? I always add jam with peanut butter - yum!!

Try this one - skip the butter, then put golden syrup on top of the peanut butter. Makes it less 'pappy' and tastes rather yummy :0)

Can I suggest making a large pile of these, covering the exterior will peanut butter, then putting a bride and groom cake topper on the top?

Dont like peanut butter so opted for Marmite instead, it was as rockin as Arthur Fowler after he nicked the xmas club money.

Hmm, this was nice but the toaster was a bit difficult to chew!

I made my margarine piping hot as suggested but found it difficult to spread, it spat up at me and was too liquidy to get on my knife. Ended up pouring on all 500g as wasn't sure how much I would've used if it was more spreadable. You definitely need a spoon to eat this peanut butter on toast which I wasn't expecting, but lovely to try a classic American recipe at last. The ones I've found always insist on knife and forks.
This recipe i'd definitely say is more for the 'keen cook' that a beginner.

The strawberry Jam comment is definately close to the mark. But the best combination is by far Peanut Butter and Marmalade on Wholemeal. that's me done. Nearly. I'm also slightly partial to cheese with my peanut butter....

I accidentally ate all the peanut butter before putting it on the toast, so I messed it up, just had toast.
I'm trying again tomorrow.
Thanks for the inspiration.
Would like more similar ideas please!

Wait Sheppy I have another question, i found the simplicity of the recipe extremely helpful but there were factors left out. You have not suggested what I should use to spread the margarine, all i had left was the toaster and well that didn't go to plan.

Feedback please?

Sheppy mate, are you personal friends with the likes of Gordon Ramsay? Because recipes such as these excede ANYTHING that man has ever cooked. What i found so ingenius was the use of a toaster as an ingredient futhermore the simplicity of the recipe. I think I might add one for beans on toast.

Seriously Sheppy I need to know are you joking or serious, as of yet I am still unsure.

I have a peanut allergy, does this contain nuts or will I be ok...? I'll give it a go and let you know.....

You're all missing out on the key ingredient here...


Peanut butter&strawberry jam. Good enough to serve at dinner parties!

I have not rated this recipe yet as I do not own a toaster. Please can anyone tell me if it's possible to make in a microwave and if so what are the cooking times. Thanks.
