Peanut Butter, Banana and Mayonnaise Sandwich

"I don't know exactly how Elvis ate this sandwich (I think he fried it), but this is my family's way of making this sandwich since I was a little girl. I craved these terribly while I was pregnant. Edited to add-Reviewer Bev is right- Miracle Whip makes it better than mayo! I used Honey Roasted Peanut Butter on my last one and it was (with the Miracle Whip) the BEST. sandwich!!! I could eat one everyday!"

  1. I love this sandwich. Been eating this since I was a kid
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. I have always loved this sandwich. I like it best with mayo.
