In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make her version of Elvis Presley's famous Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana recipe. It is sweet and salty, crispy and chewy--a delight, with even a luscious side dip!
  Whole wheat bread slices/White bread slices 2
  Butter 4 Tablespoon, softened to room temperature
  Ripe banana 1 (Not Over-Ripe)
  Mayonnaise 1 Tablespoon
  Peanut butter 2 Tablespoon
  Crispy fried bacon slices 2
  Brown sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

Spread one side of each of two slices of bread with butter. This will use about 1 tablespoon butter. Place both slices of bread, butter side down, on a hot grill or skillet, and let it brown on the under side. Place the two slices of bread, browned side up, on a sandwich or cutting board. Spread one slice of the browned bread with 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise. Spread the other slice of browned bread with 2 tablespoons peanut butter. Peel a banana, and cut it in half crosswise. Cut each half into long, even slices of banana. Arrange these slices of banana on top of the spread peanut butter. Break the two slices of bacon in half, and arrange the four halves on top of the sliced banana. Now, cover the peanut butter-banana-bacon side with the other slice of bread, with the mayonnaise against the bacon. Spread softened butter on the upper side of the sandwich, place it butter side down in a skillet, and spread softened butter on the last of the four sides of the bread. Turn on the heat under the skillet, and cook slowly, until all flavors are blended, and the sandwich is brown on both sides. Remove from the skillet, and place it on a cutting board, and cut semi-diagonally into two pieces. Place on a serving dish.
