Peanut Butter N Banana Fried Sandwich

When the ghost of Elvis Presley visits our home I shall make this for him. I am prepared to treat The King.

This is the first time I made this sandwich actually to test and blog the recipe here for friends who are seeing so much peanut butter in the US that they requested for this recipe. It is a recipe ideal for bachelor cooks.

Legend goes that Elvis would eat 12 of these sandwiches when he was depressed and it is also one of the things that killed him. Overeating caused obesity related problems and a swollen heart. So caution !!!

Moderation is the Mantra of Good life.
1 very ripe banana
2 slices of bread
2 teaspoons peanut butter
(mine is homemade so unlike American bottled ones I make without sugar)
1/2 teaspoon butter
1 tablespoon honey/ maple syrup

Apply peanut butter to both the slices of bread. Slice and place banana on one slice of bread and cover with the other. Fry this sandwich on a gridle till golden. My touch, drizzle with honey or maple syrup!

I had loved Asha's post on ELVIS'S PEANUT BUTTER-BANANA SANDWICH!:) .

PS: Guys enjoy the fragrances and eat well. Eat a lot of fruit instead of the junk thats easily available there. Enjoy your trip!


  1. Oooooh...I couldn't! Rather, I shouldn't! :-D

  2. Who said we have to walk the talk? LOL

  3. anjali, just a note for your friends. the peanut butter in the u.s. often has gobs of sugar and partially hudrognated vegetable oil. in many stores, there's a machine from which you can extract fresh peanut butter directly from the peanuts. or almond butter. they sould get that. or chandrika of akshayapatra has just posted a homemade peanut butter recipe.

  4. Paula Deen will be very happy with this recipe :)

  5. Hi Anjali,

    Peanut butter has become one of favourite item after coming here....oh i liked very much the recipe...looks great.

  6. Bee thanks for the tip. I made this peanut butter at home and so sweetened the sandwich with a drizzle of honey. I had tipped them on buying unsweetened peanut butter when we talked but it slipped here. They won't be doing elaborate cooking in this trip though.

  7. Suganya Paula Deen might ask the P.S to be removed ;).

  8. these are soo good :) i started making them after watching an elvis documentary, but can only have them once or twice a year... moderation, definitely! :)


Thank You for taking the time to leave your thoughts here.
