Or the Elvis sandwich might strike someone's fancy, but not mine. :)

No, that's just wrong.

I'm talking bread, toasted one side, smear mashed banana, sprinkle with grilled bacon, top with grated cheddar cheese and grill until the cheese bubbles.  Terminology clarification,  by grill, I mean the top element in the oven.

 

Get it out of the bucket @liuzhou:)

Well now, if you were female and pregnant I would fully understand that craving;)  And you might even want to add pickles!

True, for starters a wheelbarrow to haul all that money around.  I am slicing a banana and topping my cereal with it in your honor this morning.

The Elvis is not bad at all if you pick the right bread for it.

Didn't there used to be a popular thread on eG where you named three ingredients that are incompatible if not revolting together?. For me the Elvis would be at the top of the list: banana, peanut butter and bacon. Nothing appeals no matter how it's combined, two elements or all three. Yech. As my dad would say, with an emphasis on his inability to pronounce anything French, "Chacun a son gout."

That's hilarious! The right bread would be a cinnamon raisin bagel. Something else that should be abolished.

Elvis was in terrible health. At the time of his death, his weight was estimated at 350 pounds and he was virtually non-functional at the end, being mostly bed-ridden and requiring permanent nursing care.  He certainly enjoyed plenty of "Elvis" sandwiches ...not that that was the only factor contributing to his demise.  Probably a good idea to minimize intake of those sandwiches though ... "just sayin'"

Peanut butter and banana sandwiches happen to be very good. (Never tried them with bacon.) They're not much different than peanut butter and jelly. They were pretty standard during the seventies, on good whole grain bread, with a thin drizzle of honey. I still get a craving for one once in a while.

Proving that I sometimes make Western food; the meatarian houseguest's breakfast; homemade pork and fennel sausage rolls, with rough puff. #hostesswiththemostess

This sandwich talk reminded me of an old favorite - peanut butter and cornflakes sandwich (though it's best made open faced). I was never into crunchy peanut butter, but the flakes has a pleasant crispness against the soft bread. It will probably work with banana, but I'm not sure about bacon... 

I haven't had cornflakes in a while, I'll try to remember and buy some soon. And then I might also retry the sandwich.

I recently enjoyed a wrap of peanut butter, banana, granola for crunch, and a little honey.

A "catfish" kind of breakfast today. We had cooked up some bacon this morning and, while trying to decide what to have with it, I remembered the other half of last night's burger. So I toasted the bun, reheated the burger in the microwave, and added some onions and mustard.
