Elvis Presley died on August 16, 1977.
He was supposedly found dead on the crapper with his pajamas around his knees.
This Sunday will be the 32nd anniversary of his death.
I'm considering commemorating his passing by cranking up his Sun Records sessions and fixing one of the things that killed him.
I've done a little research and found a couple of different versions of Elvis' favorite sandwich.
There is the classic story of the Fool's Gold Loaf from The Mine Company restaurant in Denver.
It was basically a loaf of Italian bread, hollowed out and filled with peanut butter, jelly and bacon.
That sounds kind of...well, disgusting.
Then there was the grilled peanut butter and banana versions, with or without bacon.
Of the various versions, I think the grilled peanut butter and banana with bacon sounds the most Elvisish.
Seriously considering grilling up a batch of theses decadent fuckers on Sunday to mark the demise of the King of Rock and Roll.
I'm thinking you grill up all the bacon first. I lean towards thick cut, peppered bacon.
Then you make your peanut butter and banana sandwiches, layer in the bacon, and fry those fuckers up in the bacon grease.
Might even consider going all international and substituting plain old banana slices with fried plantains...also fried in the bacon grease. Ya know, for the calories.
So, if I decided to create some of these epicurean abominations this Sunday...who's in? Who will bring the Shatto milk to wash these belly bombers down?
Feedback on choice of bread? Plantains vs. Bananas? Jelly, no jelly? Brand of peanut butter? Crunchy vs. smooth? Bacon thin and crispy or thick and meaty? Hickory smoked or maple cured?
