No, I didn't see Elvis' face in my grilled cheese - April is National Grilled Cheese Month! You probably know Elvis' favorite sandwich - peanut butter, banana, honey and bacon. I turned this outrageous sandwich into ridiculous (and vegetarian) by replacing the bacon with extra sharp cheddar cheese and then grilling the mother lover. I was inspired by the peanut butter and cheese sandwiches I loved as a kid. It is just truly silly, but one bite and you'll think it's like steroids on crack. Just skip the nutritional information because you don't want to know - and go grab a skillet.
