RECIPE: ELVIS PRESLEY’S FRIED
This is Elvis comfort food. The King enjoyed “peanut butter and ‘nanner sandwiches” at all hours of the day and night. Enjoy your sandwich with one of Elvis’ favorite beverages: Pepsi Cola, orange and black cherry soda.
1. MASH the banana in a small bowl with the back of a spoon.
2. TOAST the bread lightly.
3. SPREAD the peanut butter on one piece of toast and the mashed banana on the other.
4. FRY the sandwich in melted butter until each side is golden brown. Cut diagonally and serve hot.
As for us: We’re celebrating Elvis’ birthday with some Fat Elvis cupcakes from Saint Cupcake. Their homage to Elvis, available year-round, is a banana chocolate chip pound cake cupcake topped with a swirl of salty-sweet peanut butter fudge, garnished with a banana chip.
It’s now or never: Buy ‘em or bake ‘em.
