Legend has it that the King of Rock and Roll consumed an outrageous number of grilled peanut butter, honey, banana and bacon sandwiches. As you may recall, I finally got to try this interesting delicacy when I made a trip to Peanut Butter and Co. in New York City, and it was love at first bite.
However, because I have to go prance around in a leotard at noon for my Modern dance class, I made my Elvis special a little healthier this morning. I started out by frying turkey bacon in coconut oil, and toasting a whole wheat english muffin in some lovely (healthy) coconut oil as well. Then I slathered the modest muffin with super rich chunky peanut butter and golden syrup (instead of honey). Finally, I smushed it all together and gave it a little extra brown coat in a nice bacon fat clad pan.
I was missing bananas, but this was really delicious. It went very nicely with my caffeinated English Breakfast tea... but I am feeling a little full for dance class. At least I tried to make it healthy. It was a nice alternative to my all-time favorite salty-sweet breakfast sandwich, the Mc Griddle! Plus, they kind of look alike!
