Chrissy & Smiley: Two people you cannot help but love. These friends (and avid readers) brought their own special bacon tribute to the party…a tribute to the king of all bacon lovers himself: His Holy Elvis. As seen in this photo, bacon pairs up with peanut butter and jelly on white bread for a scaled-down version of the famous Fool’s Gold sandwich. And of course each mini-sandwich was beautifully topped with an individual icon of His Holiness. If I was much, much cooler, I would have thought of this myself.
You’ve probably heard this story about how Elvis once flew himself and some friends to Colorado on his private jet in the middle of the night, just to get this famous sandwich from the Colorado Mine Company restaurant. I always thought that was an outrageous stunt, until I tried this sandwich. I could have gone my whole life not knowing I liked bacon in my PB&J, but now the veil has been lifted and I can never unlearn what I have learned. I am totally in love.
I guess I should just thank my lucky stars they didn’t bring the deep-fried peanut butter, bacon and banana sandwich. I would have to drop one seriously bad habit to make room for that one.
