The peanut butter sandwich fit for a king.

According to Elvis’ favorite hangout, The Arcade Restaurant in Memphis, The Elvis is creamy peanut butter and sliced bananas on white bread, pan fried in butter.

The Elvis Special is the sandwich served with a side of french fries. However, there are several accounts of Elvis’ mother, Gladys Presley, making the King, Fried Peanut Butter and Banana sandwiches with the addition of crisp bacon and honey. For my first Elvis, I decided to stick with Mama Gladys and add the bacon and honey.
