    Nif's Note:

    Please don't be hard on me when rating this! I would never make it myself and put this on here more out of interest to Elvis fans. THE STORY: On the night of February 1, 1976, Elvis was at his home Graceland entertaining Capt. Jerry Kennedy of the Denver Colorado police force, and Ron Pietrafeso of Colorado's Strike Force Against Crime. The three men began discussing the Fool's Gold Loaf sandwich and Elvis decided he wanted one right then. The men flew two hours to Denver, arriving at 1:40 AM. The plane taxied to a special hangar where the passengers were greeted by the owner of the Colorado Mine Company, Buck Scott, and his wife Cindy who had brought 22 fresh Fool's Gold Loaves for the men. They spent three hours in the hangar eating the sandwiches. When they were done, they flew back to Memphis without ever leaving an airport. (taken from Gloria Pitzer's website). Enjoy!

      I had read about this sandwich in a magazine several years ago and how Elvis liked this particular sandwich. It sounds interesting-supposedly peanut butter and bacon go well together. I didn't know that there was a recipe for this-thank you for posting it.
