I'm glad that some others also tried the food I think I'll start a diet tomorrow It was a little bit too much to my Hungarian stomach. Anyways I agree, the media maybe picked up this, of course he liked other foods, I'm sure. Here is a story about this candy. Maybe it's true, I read on net, on this site, where you can read many other interesting stories:
"During one party, Elvis was desperately craving peanut butter cups. When he was unable to find any in the house, he asked a young boy to go down the street to buy a carton of his favorite candy. The boy, all too eager to run an errand for Elvis, agreed. Elvis gave him $10 and told him where to go. The boy ran to the store, bought the candy, and ran all the way back. He did not want to make Elvis wait. Elvis ripped open the carton, took two packs of peanut butter cups for himself, and distributed the rest amongst his guests. After devouring the candy, Elvis approached the young boy and asked, "Can I have my change back, please ?"
Well done Betti

All this talk about food is making me hungry. I think I`ll go and make myself a little Polk Salad!
Let me know girls, how did you like itIt looks great, Betti!
Wasn't it fried peanut butter and banana sandwich? I haven't tried to make it the way Elvis liked it, but I'm sure I will..
Yes, I will let you know Betti. Yours looked really good too!
I have made the fried banana sandwiches . They are yummy! Kids love them too.
well it sure looks good but i have not gave it a try it just makes me feel a bit ill to think about eating banana with peanut butter but if its as good as you all say i might give it a go at some point also i remember reading this book about all the food elvis liked to eat and it told you how to make it but its been a while since i read it so cant remember much about what was in the book
this is the right way to make it. the only difference is that i mix the peanut butter and mashed banana together.Degree of difficulty: Low
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
2 slices of white bread
2 tablespoons of smooth peanut butter
1 small ripe banana - mashed
2 tablespoons butter
Spread the peanut butter on one slice of bread and the mashed banana on the other. Press the slices gently together. Melt the butter (or do what Elvis did and melt bacon fat), over low heat in a small frying pan.
Place the sandwich in the pan and fry until golden brown on both sides. Eat it with a glass of buttermilk.
try adding a few spoonfuls of honey to the mixture. it's lip-smackin' good, man.
I've just found another pic while I was surfing on net, this one is fried:
The cook at Graceland said the peanut butter and banana sandwich was not a regular meal it would just be something as an apetizer.
But Elvis liked southern foods, stuff he grew up on. Like he said, when he was in germany he never ate out at a restaurant not once...it was either in the mess hall or at home. He loved Creamed Potatoes, Steak, they had all kinds of steaks, BURNT bacon, all that good stuff...but not good for you health wise !!
"How do I get placed in situations like this? Ah hell, I guess it's all part of showbusiness "~ Elvis in his limo on his way to perform in Omaha, NE on June 19th 1977
That sure is interesting! I'm pretty sure the press and media would exaggerate it though.
I don't know what to think of it. I don't see how I could eat that for breakfast. In general my eating habits are different in the sense that I don't like that much meat and fat (considering American eating habits).
all the goons I left behind,
memories still linger..
Hmmm.... it's 11 PM here, so I'm getting hungry again
Here's a nice piece:
The Elvis sandwich (sometimes simply "The Elvis") is a fried sandwich consisting of peanut butter, bananas, and sometimes bacon. It was supposedly one of Elvis Presley's favorite foods in his final years.
The sandwich that has become known as the Elvis is simple to make. This recipe comes from his cook:
Toast two slices of soft white bread in a toaster. Spread peanut butter on one slice, slice banana on top of the peanut butter, and cover with the other piece of toast. Fry the sandwich in a hot skillet with melted butter.
