It has been said that Elvis Presley’s favourite food combination was peanut butter, bacon and banana.
And I’m not gonna lie, I can see why it was. Sometimes the weirdest combinations are the best. Add this combo to a burger and you have the king of burgers!
This burger is probably nowhere near as bad for you as it would have been if Elvis had made it himself, after all he wasn’t well known for his healthy diet! But healthy food doesn’t have to taste bad and you can definitely make a healthy version of this.
This burger is part veggie, I like using Quorn burgers because they actually don’t really taste any different from real beef ones and they are super low fat, which always wins for me. Here is my (as always) super easy burger recipe.
Quorn burger (you can use beef burgers or make your own, see my recipe here)
2 slices of bacon (with the fat cut off before cooking)
half a small banana
1 tsp peanut butter
1. Cook the burgers and bacon, these can be cooked under the grill or on the hob. If you use Quorn burgers there will be no fat dripping out them during cooking so I normally do these on the hob.
2. If you fry the bacon, remove from the pan once cooked and dab any fat from it with kitchen roll.
3. Spread 1 tsp of peanut butter on the lid of the roll and slice the banana.
4. Assemble your burger, with the banana on top. And you’re good to tuck in!
I had home made healthy chips and cauliflower and cheese fritters on the side. You can find my easy healthy chips recipe here.
There you have it, a healthy, quick and ridiculously tasty burger! Let me know what you think if you try it.
