A Peanut Buttery Wake-Up Call

Love, love, love peanut butter.  I found a bunch of breakfast recipes that have peanut butter, but honestly I just wanted one that was easy and that called for very few ingredients that were most likely in my cabinets already.  So when I found this recipe last night I got really excited to try it this morning - it was delicious.  Only thing - it is super filling so if you have big plans for lunch, try this another day! 

Rarebit was pretty common in the 1950s and 60s.  It is usually made with a beer and cheese base and poured over toast - this recipe replaces the beer and cheese with peanut butter and milk.  I decided to take this recipe up a notch and put in in the oven for 5 minutes after it was finished, but that is totally optional.  As usual, original recipe will be at the bottom if you'd like to try it instead. 

2 eggs
*  1  1/2 cups milk
*  6 tbs peanut butter
*  1 tsp salt
*  4 slices buttered toast

Makes 4 servings. 
   *** If you are choosing to put it in the oven, you'll need to set the oven to 350 degrees and grease a medium casserole dish. ***

Beat eggs slightly.

Add milk, peanut butter, and salt.  Mix.

Cook in double boiler for 12-15 minutes. 

Pour over buttered toast. 
   ***  If you are sticking to a truer rarebit recipe and not putting it in the oven, you'd be finished here.  ***

Put in oven for 5 minutes and use spatula to dish out servings.  Enjoy!
