According to David Adler’s book The Life and Cuisine of Elvis Presley, eating the sandwich was something of a ritual for Elvis: “Elvis enjoyed eating picnic style. However, he fastidiously used a knife and fork to eat his peanut butter and banana sandwiches.” Probably not a bad call: it’s one of the messier sandwiches you’ll find.
