I originally tried this when I was 3. Not quite the same but the idea was almost exact. One small modification if looking for less carbs is to skip the bread. My grandma would slice a banana into 4 pieces (half both ways) and smear miracle whip and pb straight on the banana. Made an awesome appetizer or snack. Little more difficult but extremely delicious. So happy to see this on here!

I have always loved this sandwich. I like it best with mayo.

This is a great comfort food sandwich, but to really make it super good, add 2 or 3 strips of crisp bacon. I know it sounds weird, but it takes this to another level. Out of this world

Man, and I thought I was the only one! My dad made these for me back before I can remember and it is my favorite sandwich. He and my grandfather are the only other people I have met that eat these amazing sandwiches. When I tell people about this they think I'm nuts. I will have to try the bacon on it, sounds great.

Here in the south we have been eating mayonnaise and peanut butter on banan sandwiches since I was a child and I am retired now. Its pretty much evident what peanut but adds but the mayonnaise adds a creaminess and tartness to the combination. Sorry, but if it ain't Duke's, it ain't mayonnaise. By the way, this recipe is not for Elvis' banana sandwich. His was fried in butter, one ripe banana mashed and spread onto one slice of bread and peanut butter (smooth, not crunchy) spread onto the other slice and then put together as a sandwich and fried in butter until golden brown. If you try Elvis' "Fried 'Nana Samwich", be sure to toast the bread slices in the toaster very lightly before making and frying the sandwich. The lightly toasted bread holds together better when smearing everything on the slices.

My daddy used to make this for me when i was little. If you don't like mayonnaise, you won't like the sandwich. I want to try the bacon idea but I would also like to add the tomato, peanut butter, and mayo combo to the table. I like to toast my bread a just enough to get a solid spread without destroying the bread. I always like to use light Hellman's becuase miracle whip is gross and the light has a tangier flavor. I LOVE THIS SANDWICH...it makes me think of home...

This was good, but I couldn't taste the mayo as well. Maybe I need to use more or try the Miracle Whip. I'll have to make my own, as I don't buy MW anymore, bcz of ingredients. I used homemade whole wheat bread and organic PB. Was hard to keep together, due to my bread falling apart :) but tasted good for a nice easy lunch. All I had for lunch was one sandwhich and I was full for quite awhile. Made for PAC.

What a deceptively delicious dish! I used mayonnaise and organic peanut butter and it turned out very well. Not too sweet or anything. I ate it both raw and heated up in the microwave and I think that raw is the better choice of the two. I'm curious as to how it would be if fried... unfortunately I think that might make it a bit too unhealthy for me. This is one recipe that I will make use of many times in the future. Thanks for posting it ^_^

We'd never had this before and my husband thought it sounded awful -- until he tried it! I used Miracle Whip and fresh wheat bread. My husband thought it was perfect; I had to add a little salt to mine as it was a bit too sweet overall for my tastes; next time I'll make mine with mayo. Very tasty and satisfying, especially with a glass of milk as suggested. Would make a quick, easy and nutritious breakfast, lunch, snack or light dinner (maybe with some tomato soup?). Thanks!
