Elvis Breakfast Sandwich

(4 servings)

  • 2 Tablespoons butter - softened
  • 8 slices white bread
  • about 1/2 cup peanut butter - smooth or chunky
  • 1 large ripe banana - sliced
  • about 1/4 cup honey
  • 12 slices bacon - cooked and crispy
Create 4 sandwiches by spreading equal amounts of peanut butter over 4 slices of bread. Top each with slices of banana. Drizzle honey over the bananas. Place three slices of bacon on each sandwich and top with another slice of bread.

Butter the outside of each sandwich. Fry on a griddle or in a large frying pan over medium heat until both sides are golden brown. Slice each sandwich in half and serve warm.

According to Elvis' longtime cook Mary Jenkins Langston, the bread for these sandwiches should be lightly toasted before the sandwiches are fried. Consider changing "8 slices white bread" in the ingredients above to "8 slices white bread - lightly toasted."

This is a favorite sandwich of the late, great Elvis Presley. The combination of peanut butter and bacon may seem weird to some, but once you try it, you'll understand why the king loved this sandwich.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank kidpancake for this recipe.
