Also, with the price of peanut futures as it is, it is wise to get heavily into the peanut butter market now, to protect against any possible interest in this recipe from China. See how this has affected the price of milk and cheese.

With the current financial crisis, and rations inevitable you may not want to waste your limited margarine on this, so feel free to cook this dish sans margarine. However, as a luxurious treat, margarine can be used for those special occasions particularly with friends and family visiting. Because of the popularity of this dish, we must be diverse in our ingredients as Wilbury says, to steady the market. Therefore feel free to experiment with brown and white bread, wholemeal obviously not being quite as good. To replace peanut butter, serve plain toast with a bag of peanuts on the side. Please ensure that you take a bite of toast and drop a couple of peanuts into your mouth at the same time. Crunching without one of the bread or peanut ingredients could lead to catastrophic consequences where you think that you're just eating a bag of peanuts and some toast.

the most important question is ...@ WILL IT BLEND?

Is there an easier version of this?

Sheppy, I think that you have outdone yourself with this recipe. I can see a future as a celebrity chef: writing cook books on the topic of toast-related snacks (ideal for any bachelor), appearing on Iron Chef (of course if the featured ingredient was bread, peanut butter or margarine) and releasing your own range of "Sheppy" branded toasters. What's next from your house of haute cuisine?

In light of the recent financial crisis, and the heavy losses on the stock market, many investors have moved out of stocks into other commodities
- wheat, for example, has been very strong (I hear peanuts are doing quite well also).
Clearly this recipe is pretty darn popular, but unfortunately the bull run on wheat and peanuts has driven up its cost to unprecedented levels.
Could you please suggest some cheaper alternative ingredients in these hard times.
Alternatively, if all of us use up our existing bread, marg, and peanut-butter supplies and make a mountain of delicious PB-on-T we could sell them short, flood the market and drive the price sharply down..
Who's on board?

On further review, I think maybe 'low-fat', 'low-salt' and 'less than 200 calories' might be inaccurate.

I would add a serving suggestion, 'on a plate'.

I can heartily recommend adding a banana (spread with a knife, not cut into pieces) and lemon curd. It's one of your five a day (possibly three if you count the lemons and peanuts).

Does the recipe work with any other sorts of toast? The picture makes it look like bread, not toast. I don't want to waste any wholemeal bread in case I ruin it.

I tried Leamac83's suggestion of replacing the bread with Chicken and the peanut butter with salad- but it made a helluva mess of my toaster..

This is a classic recipe - I have made it many times. A pleasing variation is topping each piece of toast with finely sliced banana.

That photo however does not do justice to this dish at its best - one must be patient and wait until the bread is golden!

I didn't have any peanut butter so I pushed some peanuts into a tub of lard (I ran out of marge as well) and grilled it (toaster broke). It was a little chewy but very filling. I'll definitely try this again when I feel less nauseous.

As a variation you could try mixing some Hartley's Stawberry Jam in with the Peanut butter before spreading on the bread. Loses points on the presentation but makes it all easy to spread. (PS: Definitely crunchy!)

hmmm that's a difficult one. I would go for red over white I'm thinking, although not sure why. Maybe a nice shiraz...

What would be the best wine match for this dish? Something full-bodied and alcoholic (like me)?

I find if you butter both sides of the toast you can easily use up a whole tub of margarine, or better still leave the toast to cool and crisp slightly and it will soak in the margarine much better, good luck White Jeans!

I was quite surprised to find a toaster in the ingredient list - it was quite hard to swallow.
