“5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. My inspiration for this recipe came from the "King". It's no secret that one of Elvis Pressely's favorite snacks was a fried peanut butter and banana sandwhich encrusted in potato chips. So I went for the banana encrusted in potato and peanut butter then deep fried it of coarse. I was surprised how well the flavors worked and the banana was just perfect. A great easy snack or what a way to dress up a banana split.”
1/2 banana per person
