Elvis' Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches

Elvis' Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches

Nobody in their right mind would want to follow Elvis' eating regime, but every once in a while maybe you should live like a King.

This was one of his favourite recipes and I got it off an oven mitt I bought at Graceland. Sharing the secret!

INGREDIENTS

Two large bananas

Six slices of white bread

Half a cup of butter

A cup of peanut butter

METHOD

Peel and mash the bananas then mix in the peanut butter thoroughly. Toast the bread lightly and spread the mix on the bread. Melt butter in a pan and brown the sandwiches slowly on each side until golden brown.

Play Polk Salad Annie very loudly. !
