    Priscilla Presley has publicly stated that Elvis Did Not eat bacon in his PB & Banana sandwich! This was added by folks mainly after his death to poke fun at his increased weight.

    I've been wanting to try this sandwich for years, and I finally got around to it!! I found it to be very tasty but I wouldn't make it again. I'd eat it again if someone offered it to me, but it's just not my preferred type of sandwich so I probably will never make it again. It is such a fun sandwich, though, and I did really enjoy it while it lasted.

    I always loved Elvis when I was growing up. I think mostly because Mom did. I knew of this sandwich but never knew about the bacon. It taste really good and there is nothing wrong with it the way it is, but I think I will have the bacon on the side next time, if I have bacon at all. My 4 year old seems to really like it too! Thank you sunshine-for the keeper!

    I've never had anything like this before, though I've heard of peanut butter and banana sandwiches. It was really quite tasty. I think the only thing I would change would be to break the bacon up into bits to make it easier to eat. Thank you sunshine!!!


I have two grown sons;Brandon and Zach and three granchildren,Laurel 12y/o;Shelby 6y/o; and Tyson 3,and as of yesterday;Dec 11,2007 I have a new granddaughter AVA GRACIE EVA FISHER.They live in Nebraska. I am 58 y/o and retired and collect giraffes and snow globes;as for snowglobes I preferring the plastic ones with advertising.I have over 100 globes and nearly that many giraffes. I have a kitty named Cyrano(5 y/o) that is the most affectionate cat I have ever seen.He just won`t stop rubbing up against my chin or legs and he is a "head butter".He follows me around the condo like a puppy.He needs to be in my lap every time I sit down and sleeps with me.He lays beside the computer when I am on-line and keeps tapping the mouse.I am sure he knows this messes up the page because he has a smirk on his tiny,little face. . I have been collecting recipes since I was first married and love to cook and recently learned I do like to bake; although; I never did when my kids were young and never thought I would. My grandmother and father collected recipes and wanted to publish a cookbook.Dad would make me make the recipes and taste them to see if he thought they were up to his standards.After they both passed away my sister and I decided we would take up the call and publish individual cookbooks like you see in grocery stores.We would call them."Dad Made Me Eat It." I have an old"Easy Cooking For Today" cookbook from Chef Pol Martin published in 1986 that must weigh 3 lbs and and I learned more from that book than any other.It has 608 pages.
