The Ugly American

the ugly american sandwich

The Ugly American sounds like some kind of sick joke. But I was curious. I figured that Elvis liked a freaky fried sandwich. And that guy obviously knew how to eat. So I thought I’d give it a shot.

This is the best fried peanut butter, jam, banana grilled cheese I’ve ever had. It was like there was a party in my mouth and everyone was invited. Seriously though, it was surprisingly good and it definitely hits the spot when you are looking for more than a simple grilled cheese. If I try it again I’ll probably do more cheese and less peanut butter.

The Ugly American


Two slices of white bread

Peanut Butter
Banana sliced

Butter for the skillet


Heat the pan on medium – low heat.
Spread the bread with peanut butter and jelly.
Add the cheese.
Add the banana.
