Taste Test: Elvis’ Favorite Sandwich
January 8 is Elvis’ birthday. In honor of the day, I made one of his favorite snacks: a peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich.
Elvis was known for eating tons of these crazy Southern sandwiches. They’re easy to make, but they’ve got a crazy amount of flavor.
Here’s how you do it:
Step one: fry some bacon. We can’t have this sandwich getting too healthy.
Step two: slice up a banana.
Step three: assemble the sandwich. Put some peanut butter on bread and stack on the banana and bacon slices.
Step four: butter a skillet (you don’t need much) and cook the sandwich like you would a grilled cheese.
Don’t feel like cooking this yourself? You can order a PB&B sandwich in Memphis at Gladys’ Diner at Graceland or The Arcade Restaurant in the South Main neighborhood in Memphis.
