The ‘Elvis’ — Fried Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Elvis Presley's Fried Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich Recipe

This Peanut Butter treat is not for weight-watchers!

''It'd be just floating in butter,'' said Elvis's personal chef, Jenkins Langston. ''You'd turn it and turn it and turn it until all the butter was soaked up; that's when he liked it.''


  • 2 slices white bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small ripe banana
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter


Place 2 the bread in a toaster on a light setting and lightly toast. Mash the ripe banana with a fork until creamy.  Spread the peanut butter on the toasted bread with a knife, and top one side with the mashed banana. Make a sandwich with the two slices. Heat pan over medium heat with all the butter and fry the sandwich,  browning each side, flipping regularly until all the butter is soaked up. Slice Diagonally and enjoy!
