In honor of Elvis' 80th Birthday, how better to celebrate than duplicating one of his most favorite dishes? It's well known how much he loved grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches.....and bacon. The picture above shows more of the beautifully browned bread....the picture below the recipe shows more of the yummy goodness inside the sandwich. I promise if you cook this one for your sweetie, you will not spend any time in "Heartbreak Hotel." See what I did there?
2 slices thick sliced bread
A few tablespoons of creamy peanut butter
1 banana, sliced
4 sliced cooked bacon
2 T. unsalted butter
Spread peanut butter on each slice of bread. Place banana slices on top of one piece of the bread and then place the bacon slices on top of the banana slices. Top with the other slice of bread, peanut butter side down.
Gently butter the upper slice of bread. In a medium skillet over medium high heat, place sandwich butter side down. Let the sandwich cook for 1 - 2 minutes until the bread is nicely browned. Gently flip the sandwich over and let the other side cook until it reaches a nice, crunchy brown. Serve immediately.
