It's been 30 years to the day since the King passed away. Some will claim foul play, but most know it was probably due to his fantastic diet of Fried Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches, among other fine creations. To mourn the 30th anniversary of his passing, a tribute to his culinary endeavours, a day in the life of the kitchen of Elvis. May your arteries rest in peace, oh great one. You've left us with more than just music...


Eat like a King! Enjoy Elvis’s favorite recipes for a whole day. A typical day in the King’s life:


Breakfast: Scrambled eggs (6), half a pound to a pound of sausages and heavily buttered buttermilk biscuits.
Serve in bed at any time of the day with a glass milk bottle of orange juice and hot coffee.

Morning Snack: A box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts

Lunch: Fool's Gold Loaf

Dinner: Ugly Steak

Simmer a can of peas (drained) in a broth made from half a cup of water, 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 chopped medium onion for at least 5 minutes - up to 30 minutes is okay.

Ensure that the television is turned on and serve the steak, potatoes and peas with plenty of salt, corn bread and a very large glass of buttermilk.

Desserts (Usually 2)

Caramel Cake

Banana Pudding
TV Snacks: Cupcakes, Eskimo Pies or hot dog rolls (without the sausage).

Midnight Snack: Fried Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Also recommended for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in-between.
For one period of seven weeks, Elvis ate nothing else.
