The King's Fools' Gold Loaf Sandwich

This was Elvis Presley’s favorite meal. Legend has it that on the night of February 1, 1976, Elvis was at his home Graceland entertaining Capt. Jerry Kennedy of the Denver Colorado police force, and Ron Pietrafeso of Colorado's Strike Force Against Crime. Knowing of The King‘s love of peanut butter sandwiches, they told Elvis about the Fool's Gold Loaf sandwich: an Italian loaf stuffed with peanut butter, jelly, and bacon. Elvis decided he wanted one right then and there. The men flew two hours to Denver, arriving at 1:40 AM. The plane taxied to a special hangar where the passengers were greeted by the owner of the Colorado Mine Company, Buck Scott, and his wife Cindy who had brought 22 fresh Fool's Gold Loaves for the men. They spent three hours in the hangar eating the sandwiches. When they were done, they flew back to Memphis without ever leaving an airport. Truly a sandwich fit for a King!
