Elvis Presley's Fried Peanut Butter and Banana is a classic. The King loved his peanut butter and banana sandwiches but with a twist - they were fried! This sandwich is so delicious, such comfort food and one of my first creations as a blooming chef when I was 12 years old! They were all I could make one sumemr! The sandwich is so simple to make, and a perfect rainy day activity for the kids. This sandwich is fried in a pan just like making a grilled cheese - except it is sweet!

Here is the recipe - try it out! It will probably bring most of you back to your youth!

Ingredients: Serves 1
- 1 small ripe banana (or half of a large banana) 
- 2 slices white bread
- 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter (don’t use extra-smooth)
- 2 tablespoons butter

- Slice the banana into thin rounds
- Spread the peanut butter onto to one piece of the bread and the layer on the banana 
- Butter each outer layer of bread 
- Heat a frying pan to medium-high heat (you are really looking for a quick golden brown toasted bread as the peanut butter will melt much faster then say cheese in a grilled cheese) 
- Place one side down in the pan and flip once the bottom side is golden-brown
- Serve and enjoy!
