This one is what I like to call a bachelor favorite. Joel used to eat this at least once a week before we moved in together. He made it one night during the first few months we lived together and I was hooked! Though we don’t eat it as often now. We were both kind of thinking about it the other day, so I totally had to bring it back.
I’ve gotta say, it makes a great lunch (or even dinner) stand-in for a hectic night or when I’m working.
Here’s his tricks:
Put the Sriracha sauce on before you add the tomato so that your lips don’t get hit with the spicy burn.
Use good peanut butter! Joel loves to make his own, but if we don’t have any of that good ol’ homemade stuff laying around I prefer to buy organic peanut butter. The brands I like are usually the ones that are on sale. I grew up with Adams peanut butter, so I’m used to stirring.
Wheat toast is his favorite (for this), but probably any toast would work in a pinch. I used an english muffin here, which is also one of his favs.
Add whatever kind of onion you like. Green onion is great on this, but red or white is perfectly fine too. Remember, this is “bachelor” food… so there’s not many rules here. As far as I’m concerned, these are just general guidelines. Maybe next time I’ll add sweet chili sauce. You know how much I love that stuff!
- 1 english muffin or 1 piece of toast
- peanut butter
- 4 slices of onion or 1 green onion
- 2 slices of tomato or 5 cherry tomatoes, sliced
- handful of cilantro leaves
- Toast the bread/english muffin and spread with peanut butter. Add the Sriracha, in drops or squirts, to your taste. Top with onion, then tomato, and finish with cilantro.
