The Elvis

The man would have been 76 this Saturday.  Here’s to his favorite sandwich: Peanut Butter, Banana, Bacon, and Honey on toasted white bread.


2 tablespoons butter, softened
8 slices white bread
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 large ripe banana, sliced
1/4 cup honey
12 slices bacon, sautéed until crispy (optional)

Spread the butter on one side of each slice of bread. On the other side of half of the slices spread peanut butter. Place banana slices on top of peanut butter. Drizzle honey over bananas. Place three bacon slices on top of the banana, then place the remaining buttered bread slices on top, butter-side-out.

Place sandwiches on a preheated grill pan or griddle. Flip them over when they become golden brown and crispy. When the sandwiches are browned on both sides, remove to plates. Slice in half and serve immediately.

  1. I always thought Elvis’ favourite sandwich was a full loaf, sliced sideways with the above ingredients stuffed in in much larger proportions? Although your recipe does make the monster of a butty more manageable for us mere mortals… still cant get my head around it though, banana and bacon? that just wrong! Add peanut butter and honey only makes it wronger!!
