My inspiration for this beautiful brunch dish was classic Eggs Benedict: an English muffin topped with ham, poached egg, and Hollandaise sauce. This egg-free version makes fun use of apricot instead of poached egg, and a deliciously creamy peanut sauce instead of Hollandaise. Be sure to taste an apricot from the bunch you’re using to make sure they’re sweet; otherwise, to make the dish a bit sweeter, you could spread a layer of Peanut Butter & Co. Awesome Apricot Preserves onto each English muffin half before topping with roasted apricot. And if apricots aren’t in season, you can use canned, drained apricot halves instead (no need to roast them!).
These veggie burgers get a dose of protein from both the black beans and The Heat Is On peanut butter pureed into the patty mixture. Mixed with mashed sweet potato and an assortment of spices, these southwestern-style burgers have lots of flavor and pair wonderfully with avocado, chipotle mayo, and even salsa!
Summer rolls are a big favorite of mine; they’re healthy and packed full of fresh flavors. Though they’re fiddly and time consuming to make, it’s worth the wait and you only get better at it once you have the hang of the rolling and folding. The crunchy, peanutty sauce gives it a bonus richness which contrasts those summery flavors well.
These golden brown corn dogs get a peanut butter makeover with the addition of Mighty Maple peanut butter to the corn bread batter.
The fried crunchy breading, the sweet peanut butter flavor, and the saltiness of the dogs can make you feel like you’re eating a fun treat from a carnival concession. Dip them in a peanut butter mustard mixture for even more flavor.
These soft and sinful pull-apart muffins technically aren’t muffins at all. They’re made from sweet yeasted dough which is rolled into strips and layered to create irresistible peelable layers once they’re baked. I’ve made other versions in the past, but this one is for true peanut butter lovers and it’s my favorite recipe yet. Old Fashioned Smooth Peanut Butter has been worked into every element of the recipe: kneaded into the dough, spread between the layers, and drizzled on top in a cream cheese peanut butter glaze. Paired with a mug of hot coffee, it’s peanut butter heaven.
