Happy Birthday, Elvis!

Today would've been Elvis Presley's 70th birthday. In honor of the occasion, here's the recipe for Fried Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches from Elvis Presley's Memphis restaurant on Beale Street:

4 ounces whole peanut butter
2 slices thick white bread (whole grains are for commies)
1 whole ripe banana
4 ounces whole butter

Spread peanut butter on one side of each piece of bread. Slice banana in 3/4-inch slices and place on 1 piece of bread with peanut butter. Banana slices should be close together, and cover 1 side completely (usually 9 slices). Top with the other slice of bread. Heat butter in frying pan on medium heat. Place sandwich in pan and brown for approximately 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown. Add 2 ounces of butter to the pan and flip sandwich to other side and continue cooking for 2 to 5 minutes or until golden brown and peanut butter is melting. Cut into quarters and serve very hot.

And be sure there's a defibrillator nearby.
