Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches

Makes 5 sandwiches. Recipe is from “Fit for a King: The Elvis Presley Cookbook” by Elizabeth McKeon, Ralph Gevirtz and Julie Bandy (Rutledge Hill Press, 1992).

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

2 very ripe bananas

10 slices buttered bread


1. Blend the peanut butter with the banana until creamy. Spread the mixture over 5 slices of the bread. Top with the remaining bread.
