Jan 8, 2011

With the celebration of Elvis Presley today, fans are sharing in the enthusiasm by eating, singing and entertainer just like the King of Rock and Roll. The best part has to be the eating with folks in Graceland enjoying the Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches.

You can easily make these at home and the kids will adore you after the first bite. The Food Network has done entire specials on the favorite foods of Elvis Presley with one of the easiest dishes being the Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches.) The series Food Nation With Bobby Flay actually gave a simple recipe to fans to bring this sandwich to the table:


4 ounces whole peanut butter, 2 slices Texas Toast or 1/2-inch thick bread, 1 whole ripe banana, 4 ounces whole butter


Spread peanut butter side to side, evenly on 1 side of each piece of bread. Slice banana in 3/4-inch slices and place on 1 piece of bread with peanut butter. Banana slices should be close together, and cover 1 side completely (usually 9 slices). Top with the other slice of bread.

Heat butter in saute pan on medium heat. Place sandwich in pan and brown for approximately 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown. Add 2 ounces of butter to the pan and flip sandwich to other side and continue cooking for 2 to 5 minutes or until golden brown and peanut butter is melting. Cut into quarters and serve very hot.

While the final sandwich is a bit messy, it is definitely a tummy pleasing way to enjoy the day of celebration. Happy Birthday Elvis Presley.
