Elvis Burger, Paleo Style

Since moving to Minnesota, we’ve learned about the peanut butter burgers Elvis so loved. It’s a thing around here, so much so, that when I travel back to San Diego for work, I’ve been asked, “have you had a peanut butter burger yet?!” I don’t eat peanuts, BUT I did try a bite of one (when in Minnesota) and let me tell you, amazeballs. It’s been sounding good ever since, so I recreated it to make it paleo-friendly and it did not disappoint! You could make them multiple ways, but this is how I made mine.

Elvis Burger, Paleo Style

  • 2 burger patties
  • Cashew butter
  • Grassfed extra sharp cheddar
  • Uncured, cooked bacon
  • 1/2 banana, sliced

Place one burger patty on your plate and slather with cashew butter (or, again, nut butter of your choice), stick the cooked bacon on top of the cashew butter, place the 2nd burger patty with melty grassfed extra sharp cheddar, cheese side down on the bacon, slather top patty with cashew butter as well. I had the sliced banana on the plate, and ate a slice with each bite of burger I had. The burger stayed together well. Nice for different, rich flavors than the usual burger staples!
