I remember Elvis Presley…

I received this jar of made-in-New-Zealand peanut butter…

…from my godson/ex-student in New Zealand and I could recall my nephew from there eating that with bananas and since I had the fruit in the house, I decided to give it a try and shared the photograph…

…on Facebook.

Goodness gracious me! The response was overwhelming and there were so many comments. A coursemate of my girl who was in Wellington, New Zealand with her exclaimed with excitement at the sight of it…

Made in New Zealand

…and said that she was so hooked on this particular brand of peanut butter those years when they were there.

Then there were a lot of people saying that they loved eating it that way with bread. I think my nephew did have it as a sandwich but I do not quite remember now…and my ex-student/lawyer friend, Louis, said that it was Elvis Presley’s favourite sandwich. Ah yes! That sure helped refresh my memory regarding that as I did come across that sometime somewhere but his had bacon in it.

There were others who said they loved it with jelly added – I think they call that Fool’s Gold Loaf and since I had the peanut butter and some jam (Chivers’ raspberry) in the fridge, I decided to have a go at it and went out and bought some bread, half loaf.

Now how do you like to toast your slices of bread? I am not fond of using the toaster – for one thing, I would have to take it out of the cabinet to use for just a few slices and then I would have to clean it before putting it away. I prefer toasting my bread on a non-stick pan…

Bread, pan-toasted

…until it is lightly crusty on the outside, still soft on the inside.

I still had my Golden Churn butter in the fridge so I applied that on both slices…


…and then I applied the peanut butter on one slice and the raspberry jam on the other…

Lastly, I added the bananas, sliced…


…before putting the sandwich together…

Oh me! Oh my! It was so very nice that I just had to have another one…

Elvis sandwich 2

…but I had to stop there as I was already so very full after the second round.

It so happened that I did have some bacon in the freezer at this point in time so no prize for guessing what I had for breakfast the very next morning…

Gosh! It sure was so so so good! I certainly would not look at sandwiches…

  1. With Golden Churn butter, peanut butter and raspberry jam, it. is good enough for me. I don’t think I like bananas added to it though yours looks great with it.

    You don’t like bananas? Very rich in potassium, we buy that all the time but will only buy this chay gay or the pisang emas when there is no kaleng chio available.

    1. I like to eat bananas on its own as in durian too. My favourite bananas is pisang emas & kaleng chio

      We go for kaleng chio mostly but so hard to buy here, often not available so we would have to go for chay gay – very cold, they say or pisang emas – the skin becomes very thin when over-ripe, so hard to peel and eat.

      Yes, I was horrified when I saw my nephew eating his banana and peanut butter sandwich but I did not mind trying anything and everything out of the ordinary and it turned out to be very good.

  2. I so enjoy peanut butter. I eat it daily – on banana too – and often on big thick slices of German bread.

    Not the usual thing here, bananas in a sandwich…like Irene above but it did taste great! Loved it!

  3. I never tried eating banana with bread, usually is eat it on its own…

    Has been a while since I had peanut butter as nowadays I had fruits for breakfast…

    That’s healthy, fruits for breakfast. Bananas are good, rich in potassium.

  4. Peanut butter sandwich. It could be so good and comforting to have. This brand is good huh? Must hunt and try it out if they have it over here.

    Bacon, banana and peanut butter in sandwich? That a bit too much for me. Haha. Banana, I like to eat it like that or fried as fritters. Lol.

    I prefer BestYet as it is more like peanut butter as we know it, just creamier and nicer. This one has the very nice roasted peanut fragrance, unadulterated but is a little bit too watery.

    I eat bananas a lot, not so crazy about most other fruits but I am never a fan of cucur pisang.

  5. I’ve done with peanut butter, honey and banana. Never tried bacon. Will do one day!

    So so good…but thankfully, that was the last slice of the bacon I got from my cousin in Melbourne, which means that I will not be making anymore Elvis sandwich, not in the neat future.

  6. My lunch is always PB and strawberry jam. Oh, gosh. You’ve given me an idea how to up it. This looks so yum. I’ve missed saying hello to your page! Sorry. Super busy lately.

    We prefer raspberry to strawberry. Give it a try – it was really nice.

    Welcome back!

  7. Oh, I see that this peanut butter is quite runny. I won’t mind getting a jar just to get a taste of it. Perhaps I’ll try that Elvis Presley sandwich too hee…hee…

    It was so good. Thank goodness I’ve run out of bread…and bacon…and bananas…or I would be having that again and again!

  8. Oh my…toast with banana & peanut butter is my favorite. I love it. Nobody in my house like it except me…hahaha!

    I tried and I loved it. Add jam, even nicer…and bacon! Absolutely out of this world!
