I've had this recipe for many years, and though I don't make it too often, I so enjoy it when I do. Today I had it for lunch.
Elvis Presley's Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich
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 to be truly Elvis-like, 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.
Please note: Elvis tended to eat 12-15 sandwiches a sitting (Not sure I believe this!)
I use my homemade bread.
I butter the grilling sides of the bread rather than melt butter in the pan.
I spread just one side of the bread, in this order: peanut butter, honey, and mashed banana. I don't measure, but I definitely don't use as much pb as he did, and I use just 1/2 banana.
This makes a very tasty and quick lunch that stays with you a long time.
