Elvis, PNut Butter, and Yes, Bacon...

January 9, 2013

Had he not drugged and fed like crazy and died at 42, Elvis would have been 78, yesterday. His BDay caused NPR to come up with story of a night flight to Denver Elvis made with his best buds, in order to eat the following at the Colorado Mine Company restaurant:

"Take a whole loaf of Italian bread and slice it lengthwise. Hollow it out and slather it with margarine. Then add a whole jar of jelly and a whole jar of creamy peanut butter, creating two large boats of PB&J. Finally, add a whole pound of fried bacon. Before adding the bacon, dab away the grease on paper towels (presumably to avoid adding unnecessary fat and rendering the sandwich disgusting). Then reunite the sandwich halves, deep-fry, and serve."
