  • “Substituted whole grain bread.Used organic banana, natural (unhydrogenated) peanut butter.I saved time, utensils and steps by mashing the banana on the bread.So it took me less than 5 minutes to prepare.Easy.1 skillet, 1 knife, 1 paper plate.Delicious, it was.And very nutritious.The sauteeing took the dryness out of this popular sandwich.Would I serve it to guests?To the young at heart, yes.And the heating of the banana gave it a decided Deep-South flavor, almost exotic.”

  • “very good!!!!!”

  • “Sorta had this even as a kid.It’s just missing a ingredient to be what Elvis loved.How do I know this?Related to the family on his mother’s side.The ingredient that was overlooked, Marshmellow Fluff.Gotta spread that on top of the peanut butter and than sliced banana’s.It was always called a Fluffer Nutter.Don’t know why it called a Elvis Presley Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich cause as far as I know he never had it this way.”

  • “I used to love when we had these for lunch when I was a kid! I like a little honey on mine as well, but just a smidge. You can also have this at work if you just toast the bread in a toaster, make the sandwich, and then zap in the microwave for a few seconds to heat the peanut butter. Thanks for posting!”

  • “I found this to be too rich and greasy. The taste itself was okay though.”

  • “I always wondered how this would taste and now I know!It was ok, sorta salty…I’d rather eat peanut butter and banana on toasted bread w/o the butter and with the banana sliced.”

  • “This was good. However I used whole wheat bread and cut the butter in half. I think it would have been much better if I had followed the recipe as stated, but my conscience just wouldn’t allow it!”

  • “I drizzled a little honey on there too, but it probably didn’t need it.I sliced the banana into thin lengthwise slices.”

  • “If you love peanut butter & banana sandwiches – this is to die for!!Instead of melting the butter in the pan, I buttered the outside bread slices & then used chunky peanut butter with thin banana slices for the inside. This is like the royal royce’s of peanut butter & banana sandwiches….”

  • “I used sliced sourdough and it kept oozing out the sides, so I think the measurements need to be adjusted to fit the bread. I will also use only 1T peanut butter next time because it overpowered the banana and I had to pry my mouth open with milk!Overall, though, I like the concept.”

  • “Very yummy! I loved this! I loved how the peanut butter turned out to be creamy. I put peanut butter on both slices of bread since I really love peanut butter. I am looking forward im making this again!”

  • “Very nice, I buttered the outside of the bread and fried. Different from what we would normally eat.A slice of cheese would be nice too.”

  • “Good, but I’d be as chubby as he was if I ate very many.”

  • “This was a nice, different lunch! I’d been meaning to try it, and I’m so glad I did. I used soynut butter in place of the PB for dietary reasons, and grilled it up on my George Foreman, which means I didn’t need any butter. It was delicious! I’ll definitely be having this again when I want something different!”

  • “I always wondered about this……IT WAS SOO GOOD!!I used wheat bread instead, but it does make of difference if u mash the ‘naners….this is yummy.Will make it again!”

  • “I always wondered about this sandwich. Well, I know why it’s king worthy. This sandwich is awesome I love it! I am already going to have it again.”
