    Peanut butter on a hamburger is just satay sauce.

    Fried eggs on hamburger are standard fare in Aus.

    And as to salty and sweet not meeting, that's what peanut butter is! Salty and sweet. Its loaded with salt and sugar.

    See my post upthread, #14. REAL peanut butter DOESN'T HAVE SUGAR!

    Peanut butter on a burger sounds horrific. Ew. Ewewew.

    See also: chocolate covered pretzels. Even better: chocolate and peanut butter covered pretzels.

    I reject your statement because Reese's. :D

    Most people's idea of peanut butter is sugarry though. When peanut butter is used in cooking as satay it often has coconut cream or some other sweetner in it so it is also sweet there. I do like the fresh ground real stuff though.

    If you don't like salty and sweet together better avoid Asian food where that's very much a flavour in itself.

    this sounds like something absurd Michelangelo from Ninja Turtles would eat.

    I really can't believe that more people aren't into this. Pretty much all the local joints offer it in Lincoln now, and judging by my Friend's facebook pictures, gaining popularity in private kitchens.

    Hot chocolate with a bit of chili powder (or just cayenne pepper) is heavenly! Chocolate with a kick. You don't really taste the pepper, just feel it.

    Better yet, no sugar or salt, like Crazy Richard's. :drool:

    The only way to eat peanut butter is on toast. :)

    If I wanted to feel a kick, I'd go into Mixed Martial Arts, or just visit Philadelphia. :lol:

    Peanut butter is awesome in all its incarnations, and should be consumed with all due reverence. Though I don't like the idea of it on a burger.

    I do like it on chicken, though. Or sweetened pb to dip apples into -- that's the best snack!

    It never occurred to me before, but I don't see why not. I'll try it next time I have a burger at home. Seems like it could use something else, too, like... coleslaw-style shredded cabbage (without the coleslaw dressing, of course).

    If it's a regional thing to Nebraska, that would explain why large chains haven't latched onto it yet.

    I have an Indonesian Beef recipe with a sauce that is mostly peanut butter with garlic, crushed red pepper and a few other ingredients I can't remember off the top of my head. It really transforms the peanut butter to something sweet and spicy and would probably go very well with the burger.Obviously leave off the mustard, ketchup, pickles, etc.

    If it is regional, it's not this region...I live in Nebraska and it's definitely not on any menu I've ever heard of.

    Same here. I occasionally try it to see if I'm still allergic. My ex liked peanut butter and banana sandwiches so I tried a little slice of banana when I was making him a sandwich a year ago. Yep, still allergic.
