There is no end to what you can do with peanut butter. Years ago, I had the epiphany that anything can be mixed with ground beef to make burgers, so I grilled up a batch of delicious peanut butter burgers. I'll often put peanut butter on grilled cheese, and I've had it with eggs, bacon and jelly on breakfast sandwiches. I think its especially good in sauces for asian dishes. But, if you have quality peanut butter, jelly, bread and milk, there are few things that can match it for deliciousness. What would I do with a case of peanut butter? Find a way to incorporate it into each meal I cook for a month, then I could write a cookbook about it.

Peanut butter works well with just about any fresh fruit. My go-to sandwich combos are: smooth or crunchy peanut butter on multigrain bread with freshly sliced kiwis and strawberries smooth peanut butter on challah with an almost over-ripe sliced pear smooth or crunchy peanut butter in pumpernickel bread with alternating slices of granny smith and golden delicious apples mix smooth peanut butter with chopped raspberries and whole blueberries(kids love to make this delicious mess!)-spread on your favourite bread and enjoy!

I'm a peanut butter junkie and so are my dogs! I put some in their dog toys which keeps them occupied for the day while I'm at work.

I use peanut butter in so many ways. Of course the usual sandwiches come to mind as well as cooies and breads. One of our favorites cookie bars are peanut butter and jelly bars. I mix peanut butter in with my morning oats and snack on apple slices with peanut butter. Peanut butter is also a great thicking agent in so many savory dishes and of course there is Thai peanut butter noodles. Lastly I like to put a tablespoon in my evening hot chocolate. Yum!!

We ate peanut butter everyday, but in different ways. Daughter usually packs a 365 pb&j for school lunch. I eat two tabelspoons with raw veggies as my midmorning snack. Hubby loves peanut butter, banana and honey sandwiches. In fact, he'll sometimes choose that over ice cream!!

I would share it with others who don't know about the great nutritional value and protein packed delicious taste of Organic peanut butter. The greatest requital would be to nourish someone else as much as myself.

While I am allergic to almost every nut (e.g., pecans, cashews, walnuts, pistachios, pine nuts, etc.), I was luckily spared from having an allergy to the greatest nut of all - the peanut. And boy do I take advantage of that. In the morning, I love taking a teaspoon of peanut butter and adding it to my bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon, raison, ground flaxseed, agave and soy milk. For a mid-morning snack, I will most likely take a granola or protein bar and coat it with a shmear of peanut butter. For lunch, PB&Banana always hits the spot. A couple of slices of whole wheat bread toasted, a generous portion of peanut butter, a half a banana sliced, then 10 seconds in the microwave to melt the peanut butter and soften the banana, and boy do I get some weird looks from the other attorneys in the lunch room. For my afternoon snack, I blend myself a smoothie with 1 cup of soy milk, four or five strawberries (or often times the other half of the banana), a tablespoon of peanut butter, a scoop of vanilla or chocolate protein power, and a handful or two of ice. By dinnertime, I am pretty much PBd out for the day, and I try to get my healthy fats from other sources, such as avocado, salmon or orange roughy, although I have been known to sprinkle some peanuts onto a salad or into a side of brown rice. So, all in all, I have a two word answer to your question: "What Would You Do with a Case of Peanut Butter?" DEVOUR IT!

If I got a case of peanut butter, I would distribute it amongst my friends and family so I could eat it when I go to their homes. I looooove peanut butter but can't keep it in my place. I eat in my sleep(seriously) and have woken up choking on peanut butter! I can't keep it in my home sadly. It's delicious but it isn't worth dying over!

I do enjoy peanut butter, but for as long as I can remember, my brother has ADORED peanut butter...whether it is simply by the spoonful or between bread alone &/or with jam, with some sliced banana, on celery or in his fav cookies. As children, I clearly remember him asking our waitress at a chinese food restaurant if he could have a pb sandwich instead. He hasn't lost his enthusiasm as an adult and continues to eat it - every day, several times a day and often as a meal in itself...the tub I can barely finish before expiry, he consumes in just over a week. Its always part of my sweetest memories associated with visiting him as it is an integral part of our early morning coffee and pb toast ritual. I would be thrilled to win a case of delicious 365 Everyday Value Organic Peanut Butter for my little brother Matt! Thanks! :) Alana

I love peanut butter more than people. My favorite this week is peanut butter on top of flax waffles, or on rice cakes with bananas and/or honey. Mmmm

I'm third in a family of eleven children (one mom, one dad, six girls, five boys,no twins). We all love peanut butter! My Dad used to make peanut butter & brown sugar sandwiches for us. Mom while heartily enthusiastic about peanut butter, didn't approve such liberal use of brown sugar. But she didn't have the energy to object, especially if someone else was feeding her voracious hoard. At least once, Dad spread the peanut butter on the bread, added the requisite 1/2 inch of brown sugar, then ran it under the broiler until it bubbled. Wonder why he didn't add bananas? So I came up with this recipe: Peanut Butter & Bananas Foster Sandwiches (The perfect Birthday Breakfast) 2 slices whole wheat bread, 2 tablespoons peanut butter, 1 large banana, 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 tablespoon butter 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1/4 cup chopped pecans cinnamon and nutmeg to taste vanilla ice cream Lightly toast the bread, then spread one side of each slice with peanut butter. Set the slices on a broiler pan. Slice the banana and cover each slice of PB Toast with banana slices. Mix the remaining ingredients, except for the ice cream, and spread it evenly over the banana slices. Broil just until the brown sugar starts to bubble. Watch carefully so it doesn't burn. Serve on small plates with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some dark chocolate caramel fudge, if you have any on hand. Serves 2

We love good peanut butter on hot toast with a nice jam or banana on top of it here in our house. Also high up there is peanut butter on soda or Ritz crackers, english muffins work well to.

Our family is OBSESSED with peanut butter. Let's start with my son. His favorite saying is "I would die without peanut butter". He puts it on everything to the point where some things are to gross to tell you. I catch him all the time just eating spoonfuls of peanut butter right from the jar. Then there's are dog Sheyla...she loves it too! She can be fast asleep but if you open the peanut butter jar she knows and is there waiting for her portion. My husband has a routine in the morning where he make an extra slice of toast with peanut butter for Sheyla and they enjoy breakfast together. We literally go through 2-3 1Kg jars a week. We all look like peanuts!

When I was in high school, my guilty pleasure was an omelet of peanut butter, bacon and cheddar cheese. Forty years later,I refined it. It is now made with organic eggs, peanut butter, freshly shredded Parmesan Reggiano and crispy proscuitto. I make it very often but oh man, it tastes great. And I eat peanut butter every day, usually spread on a rice cake for a great snack that provides crunch and protein. Long live peanut butter!

I would have my favourite chicken dish more often: Just before your chicken breasts are done (pan simmered) add a sauce - mixture of chunky peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, and rice vinegar stirred into some chicken broth (or water) to extend it, add garlic powder and red pepper flakes, turn the chicken pieces over in the sauce several times, while continuing to cook, - and serve, scooping the pan sauce over the top. Lovely!

My love for peanut butter was so strong that it overcame my husband's utter disdain for it. I grew up eating it with eggplant, cooked on the stove with Indian spices, and when we got married dear hubby didn't even like it with chocolate. So, one day at a time I exposed him to it...and viola...he eats it on a bagel every day for breakfast! Yay!

Our family of 5 LOVE some PB! We put it on toast, pb&j sandwiches, eat a spoonful w/ choc chips on top for a quick treat, spread it on apples, bananas, you name it! We made the switch to all natural pb when we had kids old enough to eat it and we've not gone back to the other nasty stuff since! We'd share w/ some friends too! Everything tastes better when shared! ;)

I just recently got my tongue pierced. Because I can't hardly eat anything I needed something soft to eat for a week. I swim for 2 hours everyday and crave protein. So everyday breakfast, lunch, and dinner I would heat up peanut butter in a bowl and eat if strait like a bowl of soup. And mmmmmmmmmmm it was good! I love it with yogurt and fruit also! -Katelyn

Goodness, you can make peanut butter cake, peanut butter frosting, peanut butter cookies, peanut butter dog treats, peanut butter sandwiches, eat it from a spoon, eat it on crackers, make a peanut butter pie. It tastes great morning, noon or night.

What wouldn't we do with peanut butter?? There's 5 of us in my family and we are peanut butter fanatics!!! We eat it everyday whether it's in PBJ sandwiches, on top of waffles for breakfast, in protein shakes, with apples or bananas. Sometimes I just take a spoonful to my mouth to hold me over in between meals. It's a staple in our house...we LOVE it!!!

What would breakfast be without crunchy peanut butter oozing onto a toasted English muffin? Or PB, banana and bacon on whole wheat bread for lunch. Afternoon snacks: peanut butter on celery sticks, or decadent peanut butter cookies. And dinner might be Sichuan Pork Noodles using of course Whole Foods peanut butter as a real flavor booster. Try the recipe from The Best Simple Recipes: More Than 200 Flavorful, Foolproof Recipes That Cook in 30 Minutes or Less (America's Test Kitchen, March 2010). Since we always keep a couple of jars on hand, a smart move given the weather we've been having, we'd share our case with the RI Food Bank.
