The Elvis

If you know me, you know I LOVE Elvis. But not in the weird "He's still alive, he just got abducted by aliens. The King will return!" kind of way. I love Elvis because I love his music. I love the era he was a part of. I love that his music defined a generation and closed a gap between races with his music. My love was taken to a whole new level when in the 5th grade my mom and step-dad asked me where I wanted to go on vacation. Without hesitation I said Memphis, Tennessee. I got to see all things Elvis including the Mecca of Elvis fans: Graceland. On our stop in the kitchen of our audio tour I learned that Elvis enjoyed fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. So today I decided to created my version of Elvis's favorite food. Let's get started!

"The Elvis"
2 slices bread
peanut butter

Butter one side of each of the pieces of bread. I never claimed this sandwich would be good for you ;)

Spread peanut butter on the "dry" side of the bread. A good layer, not too thick but you don't want to be able to see the bread through it either.

Cut about 6 pieces of banana and place them on the peanut butter on one piece of the bread. You can cut them as thick or thin as you like.

Assemble your sandwich and place it on a hot skillet. Grill it just like you would a grilled cheese.
And this is the result. A warm, melt-y, yummy, sandwich. I know why Elvis loved these so much now! I am a believer! Simple and delicious! Enjoy!
