In honor of the second season of Man Vs. Food (http://www.travelchannel.com/TV_Shows/Man_v_Food), I made the famous Elvis Presley Fool's Gold Loaf last night!

For the uninitiated:


I couldn't afford Dom Perignon, so we went with a nice Prosecco, but the rest of the ingredients were the same.

(toasting the king before the sandwich is done)

cooking the bacon took FOREVER and made like a gallon of grease (that popped, burned my arm, and destroyed my bf's shirt)

A pound of cooked bacon

The first step is to hollow out the bread.  Yes, my cookie sheet is black from use..  I hope I'm not the only one that has one of those Wink

Step 2:  Add a little peanut butter (and not the natural non-hydrogenated kind either!  That's not the Elvis way Wink)

Step 3:  Add some more peanut butter

Step 4:  Add so much peanut butter you can't lift the bread

Step 5:  Add a whole bunch of jelly (even if you hate jelly and don't think grape will go with bacon)

Ready for the bacon!

Step 6:  Resist the urge to use the delicious bacon on something tasty like a BLT and add it to the sandwich

Step 7:  Assemble and put it in a 350 degree oven until the bread is warmed but not crisp

Step 8:  Get the sandwich all over your face, hands, and floor

So the verdict was mixed.  The BF (who I think might have just been cranky about the shirt) said it was inedible and had chips/salsa for dinner.  I thought it was ok, but you really REALLY have to like PB&J sandwiches.  I thought the bacon got completely lost in all of that peanut butter.

My sister's verdict:  Best hangover food ever!

Man, she loved this sandwich like none other!  Which leads me to my ultimate conclusion..  If you really want to enjoy the Fool's Gold Loaf, you have to live like Elvis..  or at least be as hungover as Elvis Smiley

I'm looking forward to the next Elvis recipe a lot more than this one:

for me at least, the first few bites were really tasty, and then the richness completely overpowered the taste Wink  Supposedly Elvis ate a WHOLE ONE HIMSELF!!!  I can't even imagine..  we split it into 3 and nobody finished even that much Cheesy

I never actually realized until now that the sandwiches my dad made when I was little and the fool's gold loaf were the same thing!  Every now and then I get a wild craving for this sandwich only with strawberry jelly instead of grape.
