A Happy Gluten-Free Birthday to Elvis!

Gluten Free Sandwich IdeaWhile some might associate Elvis Presley with “Heartbreak Hotel”, Graceland or swinging hips, my food-loving self always jumps straight to the Elvis Sandwich. If you have never heard of this classic sandwich, then you are in for a surprise. Let me warn you, at first, you will be intimidated, terrified or maybe even disgusted by the medley of ingredients in this sandwich. After your first bite, however, the delicious sweet and savory flavors will overpower any hesitations you may have held. The Elvis Sandwich is versatile and works well for school lunches, afterschool snacks or, as I usually do, ski slope meals. There is nothing quite like taking a semi-squished Elvis sandwich out of your ski jacket and enjoying it with a hot chocolate in the lodge! So, without further ado, here is the recipe to help you celebrate the birth of the King of Rock n’ Roll:

2 slices of your favorite Udi’s bread (I prefer the White Sandwich Bread, but I bet Cinnamon Raisin would be delicious as well)

Your favorite nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew… you choose!)

1/2 banana (sliced)

3 slices of cooked bacon (cooked as crispy as you like)

The next part is the easiest. Simply spread your chosen nut butter on both slices of bread. Then, add the banana slices and bacon and smash between the bread. Now, go ahead, try it. You’ll thank me later!

    Might try it, it’s definitely not health/heart friendly and yes, we still enjoy Elvis’ songs. My favorite sandwich on Udi’s bread is a BLT but with a couple of slices of avocado. Finally, manufactures are seeing the need for products that are celiac/DH friendly. Made a wonderful Carrot Cake the other day currants, pineapple, finely shredded carrots, along with a thin buttercreme frosting, yum. Not only could I eat it but I only got two small pieces because my hubby ate the rest. Our kids say dad will eat anything and even mom’s speical diet. Keep up the good work and your products are in my fridge right now!

    YUM!!! This is my favorite sandwich. As a kid I was obsessed with Elvis, so I made myself one and fell in love. I done some variations on it, but the original is best!
