I hadn’t planned on making this sandwich, but when I was browsing through Nigella Lawson‘s newly designed website, I found the recipe for Elvis Presley’s fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. It reminded me that it was always something I wanted to try but hadn’t gotten around to yet.
I’ve had peanut butter and banana together before, and in a regular unfried sandwich as well. But it tasted quite different fried and warm. I can’t say it’ll be a regularly made sandwich in our house, but at least I’ve finally tried it!

Makes 1 sandwich
1 ripe banana
2 slices bread, any kind will do
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter (don’t use extra smooth)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Cut banana into slices. Lightly toast the bread, then spread the peanut butter on one piece and layer the banana on top of the peanut butter. Place the other slice of bread on top. Fry the sandwich in the butter, turning once, until each side is golden-brown. Remove to a plate, the cut the sandwich carefully in half on the diagonal and enjoy.
