Some of you may remember a little while ago when I made a Strawberry, Banana and Peanut Butter cake dubbed by my husband as The Graceland Cake. At the time I also mentioned making another Elvis Presley creation featuring regularly on the menu - The Elvis Bagel!!! Well as promised, here it it in all its glory. Unlike other bagels that are toasted, this one is baked in the oven for a few minutes. I think it makes the bagel more doughy and chewy which I like. Then the bottom half of the bagel is spread generously with smooth peanut butter, the top half generously with good strawberry jam. Before both can kiss, the middle is packed in a domino fashion with sliced banana for height and visual impact.
Then put together on an oval plate and served with salted popcorn, sometimes some pretzels and when in season - fresh strawberries. Its truly rich and filling.
This is one high octane of a Bagel.
Yes it can only be the Elvis Presley Bagel - A flaming star of a bagel with sliced bananas, strawberry jam and peanut butter - the 1970s look on a plate. WARNING: You may need to add coffee to your order!!!
Now get your gnashers into that bagel!Do you have a favourite bagel filling, I'd really like to know?
