Elvis Grilled Cheese

This one is an homage to the Elvis – bacon, bananas, peanut butter grilled cheese. It’s a crazy combination, but you have to try it to see how amazing it really is.

The roasted bananas are everything in this recipe, so don’t skip that part. And definitely don’t leave out the bacon jam, it’s the savory component that gives balance to the sweetness of the bananas. Topping it all off is a schmear of peanut butter and some Fontina cheese for richness.

Of course you’ll need to layer that in between some good bread, so make sure you grab La Brea Bakery’s Rustic Country White—a simple, high-quality bread that elevates any sandwich.
