Hunka Hunka Elvis Recipes!

Ran across some postcards I purchased in Memphis a few years ago, including a couple that have recipes that are supposed to be from Elvis’ kitchen. They sound delicious. I hung the postcards in the kitchen at my old house, but the pictures went into storage in the garage when I moved. Here are the two favorites that I chose (the gift shop had several others).

Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwiches

2 large bananas

6 slices of white bread

1 stick of butter

1 cup peanut butter

Peel and mash bananas. Mix peanut butter with bananas thoroughly. Toast bread lightly and spread mix on bread. Melt butter in skillet and brown sandwiches on each side slowly until golden brown.

Sweet Potato Pie

2 large sweet potatoes

1 1/2 cups sugar

3 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 Tablespoon nutmeg

1 stick butter

1/2 cup milk

1 9-inch unbaked pie shell

Bake the sweet potatoes until tender. Cool, peel and mash. Combine the potatoes and other ingredients. Pour into pie shell. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50 minutes or until done.
