Baltimore has alot of Elvis inspired things around town. Being from Memphis I was curious as to why there are multiple spots in this city that have images and cut outs of Elvis. I can’t get an actual answer from anyone either when I ask “What’s with all the Elvis stuff?”. Most answers have been, “We’ll he was the man!”. So I’m left to wonder what’s going on with it.
Peanut butter sauce

- Cook bacon, let rest, and crumble. Slice up banana
- Add all together in a bowl and enjoy
I decided to try to mix in some Memphis into mine and Val’s breakfast after being homesick one morning. Elvis’ favorite sandwich was a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. I decided to play on that by making a peanut butter bacon banana oatmeal. Let’s be honest, what doesn’t get better by adding bacon to it? Not much.
We tried out a couple different recipes for the peanut butter sauce, but I finally found one I liked. It wasn’t easy to make such a tasteful sweet, but not too overpowering sauce. The first couple times we tried variations of milk as well and the texture/viscosity wasn’t right with almond and 2%. We love using Bob’s Red Mill Rolled Oats for this recipe. Once we got the recipe down, Val looked at me and said “Yup! That’s it!”. I knew I was right on the money.
Eating this breakfast gave me a taste of home and really hit the spot. After eating this, I’m thinking about actually doing a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. Until I actually do it I might just stick to doing variations of things that remind me of home.
Welp without further ado, we hope you enjoy our peanut butter bacon banana oatmeal. This was delicious and filling without too much of a pain to make. Val and I really appreciate you taking the time to read our post. Make sure to check out our Avocado 3 Ways too!
As always, from our kitchen to yours, cheers!
