The Elvis | Fried Peanut Butter, Banana, Honey & Bacon Sandwich

Today marks what would have been Elvis Presley’s 80th birthday.  In homage to “The King of Rock & Roll,” here’s a recipe for his favorite deliciously indulgent fried peanut butter, banana, honey, and bacon sandwich.  Although there have been many variations over the years, most can agree that a classic Elvis includes generous amounts of butter, banana slices, and peanut butter sandwiched between two slices of white bread… then pan-fried.  The additions of bacon and honey may have been later developments, but they make this sandwich all the more satisfying.

Fun Fact: It is said that Elvis would eat 15 sandwiches in a sitting!  (This recipe only yields 4 sandwiches)

  • 2 tbsp butter, softened
  • 8 slices thick cut white bread
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 large, ripe banana, sliced
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 12 slices bacon, sautéed until crispy


  1. On one side of half the bread slices, spread peanut butter generously.
  2. Place banana slices on top of peanut butter.  Drizzle honey over bananas.
  3. Place 3 bacon slices on top of the honey-bananas, then place remaining bread slices on top.
  4. Place butter in the skillet and let melt.  Lay the sandwiches down in the butter, allowing the bread to soak it up a bit, and flip once they become golden brown and crispy, about 3 minutes.  To do as the King would do, add more butter to the skillet once you flip your first side.
  5. Slice in half and serve immediately.

*This sandwich has the ability to be a diet ruiner, eat with caution and in sweatpants!


Happy Birthday, Elvis.
