Who’s tried (or even heard of) a peanut butter burger?
According to the internet, it is “a thing”, but it was not until Anthony, our director of purchasing, advocated for the odd combo that it came to my attention. Anthony is well regarded around Spud headquarters as an expert on – well – everything, TBH, but especially anything food-related. Which, I mean, is good news, considering his job. But it also means that I’d give credence to his opinion on this kind of thing over most other people.
So the basic gist here is that you’re eating a hamburger with peanut butter spread on it – but it’s not that simple. You need a well-curated group of toppings to get the right balance of savory, spicy, and sweet flavours, and to keep the texture juicy, not mushy. In the context of a hamburger, don’t think of peanut butter in it’s role as partner to jelly or chocolate, think of it more as peanut satay sauce – savoury, rich, and creamy. The jalapenos add spice, and the pea shoots add a much needed burst of sweet freshness. The chips are also essential for adding both crunch, and smoky flavour that pairs beautifully with peanut butter.
Here we present: the BEST peanut butter burger possible:

Jalapenos, sliced into thin rounds
