Today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Day and the Pnut Butter Bar food truck out of Los Angeles, CA shows there’s more to peanuts than the classic PB&J sandwich by serving up nutty dishes such as the Elvis-inspired Thank You, Thank You Very Much sandwich, made with bacon, bananas, peanut butter and honey – and grilled in butter, of course.

Thank You, Thank You Very Much Sandwich

Thank You, Thank You Very Much Sandwich

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 10 minutes | Yield: 1 sandwich


2 thick slices of brioche bread
3 slices of applewood smoked bacon, cooked until crispy
1 banana, cut lengthwise in 1/4-inch slices
3 tablespoons butter, room temperature
4 tablespoons creamy peanut butter


Generously slather butter one side of each slice of bread with soft butter.

Layer peanut butter, banana, and bacon on one unbuttered side of bread.

Drizzle with honey, and top with the second slice of bread, buttered side out.

Using a flat, non-stick griddle bring up to a medium heat (approximately 340 degrees Fahrenheit).

Lay sandwich on the hot griddle and fry until golden brown (about 3-4 minutes per side). This time will vary based on the heat of your griddle.
