Recipe Flashback: The Elvis Presley

The Elvis Presley Sandwich

Tuesday was Elvis Presley’s birthday, and what better way to celebrate than with a stomach ache? I mean a sandwich! A decadent, sugar-laden sandwich.

When I first made this sandwich, I dubbed it “The Tummyache,” because it’s so rich, and I devoured it way too fast. This thing is far from health food, but Elvis wasn’t exactly known for healthy eating, right?

The Elvis Presley


  • 2 slices whole-grain bread (this is my half-ditch attempt to keep things semi-healthy)
  • 1 tablespoon crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon Ricemellow Creme
  • 1  banana
  • Earth Balance for the pan
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg

Cooking Directions

  1. Use the palm of your hand or a rolling pin to flatten your two pieces of bread, and spread one slice with PB and the other with Ricemellow Creme.
  2. Cut the banana into slices, and arrange them on the bread – this may not use the whole banana. It depends on how big the banana is and how much you flatten out your bread.
  3. Gently mash the pieces of bread together.
  4. Heat the Earth Balance in small skillet over medium heat and let it melt, then put the sandwich into the pan.
  5. While that first side grills, mix the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl.
  6. Flip your sandwich over, and grill the other side for just about a minute.
  7. Dredge both sides of the sandwich in the cinnamon/sugar mixture, and serve it up while it’s still warm.

    • Right? Not so healthy, but so delicious! My parents wouldn’t buy us marshmallow cream, but I remember loving when we had lunch at my one friend’s house, because it often meant fluffernutter sandwiches.

  2. Mmm, I want that in my mouth right now. I’ve never actually had Ricemellow Creme. Is this something I can pick up in Atlanta? I might have to try this out this weekend….to balance out all these veggies I’m eating :-)
