Twist on an American Classic - The Elvis


½ cup butter, softened
¾ cup crunchy peanut butter
3 tablespoons honey
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 to 3 ripe bananas
8 slices fully cooked bacon
8 slices white bread

For the topping:
¼ cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


In a frying pan (or electric, non-stick griddle), melt 3 tablespoons of butter. Make sure butter does not burn. In a small bowl, mix together the peanut butter, honey and cinnamon. Slice the bananas into ¼-inch thick slices. Spread the peanut butter mixture on 4 slices of bread and cover with the banana slices. Meanwhile, heat strips of bacon on griddle. Once the bacon is heated throughout, position in the center of the bread. Top with the remaining 4 slices of bread. Spread the remaining butter on both sides of the sandwiches. Grill the sandwiches until each side is golden brown.

For the topping: Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow plate. Coat the grilled sandwiches with the mixture. Cut diagonally and serve hot. Use remaining banana and bacon slices for garnish.
