I’m always on the lookout for good breakfast recipes and during my research I stumbled upon this “Oh So Famous” Elvis’s Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich recipe
A recipe with the legends name was definitely worth looking into and that’s when I came across this version of the recipe by Nigella Lawson , it was quite simple but I didn’t stop here and continued my search to find out the exact and authentic legendary recipe. So with a few clicks here and there I finally came across Sandy’s page where she had a similar research experience like mine and eventually found Elvis’s mothers comment regarding the recipe on Graceland website (yeeaay finally found it! 😀 )
So Elvis’s mother shares the recipe secret to be, a sandwich prepared with peanut butter, bananas, bacon, bread slices (of course) but the actual secret was frying the bananas in bacon fat. SO finally, I got to know the secret to Elvis’s Fried Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich was actually “fried bananas”
As my research had ended here and finally I knew the secret, I went for the simple version of Elvis’s Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich and trust me when you’ll have this sandwich it’ll become your favorite breakfast sandwich too!
