My husband requested that I make him an "Elvis Sandwich" for dinner, being the awesome wife that I am I gathered the ingredients and honored his request. He came home from a long day at work to find these cute little sandwiches awaiting him. He was so impressed with the way they turned out that he requested I make a blog post about them so that other wives could indulge their husbands with a meal that is like dinner and dessert all in one.
For a Elvis Sandwich you will need:
1/3 of a banana, sliced
2 tablespoons of peanut butter, I used honey roasted
2 tablespoons of marshmallow cream
2 to 4 slices of bacon depending on your preference (you could leave this off if you are opposed to bacon but it won't be the same!)
2 slices of bread or a croissant
I used mini croissants which I warmed up in a 350 degree oven for 9 minutes to give them a flaky texture. I sliced the croissants in half. I spread peanut butter on one side and marshmallow cream on the other. I made a layer of sliced banana on the marshmallow cream side. I folded the slices of bacon in half and placed them on the peanut butter side. I drizzled honey on top of the bacon and glued the 2 halves together.
This sandwich is unique. It is definitely a treat and not your average meal, but it is worth trying. I think most people are turned off by the bacon, but it makes the sandwich according to my husband.
Have you ever had an Elvis Sandwich?
