Happy Birthday Elvis!

Today we are celebrating the birthday of Elvis Presley. The KING would be 77 today! Can you believe it?! I have read that Elvis loved Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches. So I thought that a version of that sandwich would be a way to honor the exceptional singer, musician, and person that the world still does, and will always love.

 Biscoff and Banana Sandwich
Pretty easy ingredients!
1 Banana
Biscoff Spread
2 pieces of White Bread
Pan Spray
Spray the pan with pan spray. I mean, I know we are using butter
also, but there is no reason to put it in the pan too.
Every little bit helps!! Right?
Spread the bread with butter, and place it in the pan,
butter side down, Spread the other side of the bread
with biscoff. I used a generous amount!
Smush the banana in a bowl.
Spread that banana over the biscoff spread that is
on the piece of bread in the pan.
Take your second piece of bread and spread butter
on it. Place the bread, butter side up on the bananas
and biscoff.
Grill until golden brown on both sides.
The taste is unbelievably delicious!
I'm sure Elvis would approve.
Happy Birthday Elvis!
You are forever young!

Thanks for joining The Freshman Cook today!
Stop by again tomorrow!

  2. I started using Biscoff spread for some easy rice krispies treats..Great idea for a touch to a banana sandwich..Thanks for sharing.

  3. Great sandwich and delighted to see the Biscoff adaptation. Elvis was quite the man and would have loved this version. Thanks for sharing. Found you through Crazy Cooking Challenge. Hope you'll check out my entry #52 when you get a chance.

  4. YUM! Thanks for sharing--these sound AMAZING! Never hear of Biscoff, but will have to see if I can find it! :)

  5. I haven't tried biscoff yet. It went on sale before Christmas and I missed my chance to get it cheap. Now I am holding out for another. That sandwich would make my husband smile. He loves bananas and peanut butter, too.

  6. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Biscoff spread!!!! Will definitely give this sandwich a try. So far I pretty much just eat the stuff straight from a spoon ... but haven't quite made it to experimenting much with it in cooking/baking. I HAVE made one kind of cookie ... but haven't posted about it yet. Soon! Thanks for sharing.

  7. Hi Terri,
    Oh surely he would not have been that old, I can still remember sitting with my girlfriends on the second row at one of his concerts, just like it was yesterday, sigh. What a great celebration, the Biscoff looks delicious! Thank you so much for sharing with our 1st Anniversary Party at Full Plate Thursday. Have a great week end and come back soon!

  8. I visited Graceland with my sister in law in November and we sat at the diner and ate fried peanut butter and banana sammies! I'm a convert! But I have to say that banana and biscoff on whole wheat is a close second :)

  9. Thanks for this! I'm sure The King would have loved it! Love your site! xx
