A Happy Birthday And The Elvis Sandwich

Did you know it’s Elvis’ 78th Birthday today? I’m not sure if I’m on the ‘Elvis is still alive’ bang wagon (if that wagon still exists?), but I can’t argue that the man had taste. Rumour has it that his favourite dish in the whole, wide world was a Peanut Butter, Bacon and Banana Sandwich.

I shared a recipe for this guilty pleasure sandwich in a blog entry on this site back in December as a quick and easy lunch for a day when you don’t feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches have always been a favourite of mine, so adding in some crisp bacon just takes it to another level.

Not that this one really needs a recipe, but, nonetheless, here it is…

What you’ll need…

8 slices bacon

8 slices white bread (keeping’ it classic, old-school all the way!)

2 bananas (1/2″ sliced)

peanut butter (the more the merrier!)


Fry up the bacon in a large frying pan until they’re nice and crispy. Place onto some paper towel to absorb any excess grease and to cool slightly. Toast all bread slices until they’re golden brown. Slather each piece with some peanut butter, top with sliced bananas and one piece of bacon. Combine slices into pairs, slice in half and chow down!

Always so simple and satisfying! Happy Birthday Elvis!

Serves 4

Total prep time…10 min
