The Elvis Presley sandwich, otherwise know as the Fool’s Gold Loaf, is now a well fabled story whereby Elvis would combine a pound of bacon, peanut butter and grape jelly inside a warm loaf of Italian bread. Now, we’re not suggesting you go quite to the super-size lengths that these tales suggest, or in fact eat one of these every day, but he certainly got something right with the flavour combination. If it’s good enough for the King, then it’s good enough for us, we say.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 slices streaky bacon
4 slices white thick bread
6 tablespoons peanut butter
2 bananas, sliced
drizzle honey or maple syrup, (optional)
3 tablespoons butter, softened

Method

  1. Preheat the grill to high and cook the bacon on each side for 2–3 minutes, depending on how crispy you like it. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper.
  2. Meanwhile, very lightly toast the bread for 30 seconds, then spread with the peanut butter. Place the banana slices on 2 of the slices and add 2 slices of bacon to each of the other 2 toast slices. Drizzle over some honey or maple syrup; then sandwich together and spread the butter on the outside of all the pieces of toast.
  3. Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and, when hot, add the sandwiches to the pan. Toast until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. Cut in half to serve.
