Elvis Presley Fried Peanut - Butter and Banana Sandwich

I love trashy food: peanut butter and jelly, vol au vants, cheese and pineapple sticks and my favourite of all: Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich, made popular by the king of rock, Elvis Presely. I'm no stranger to this combination of peanut butter and banana having created my own version a couple of years ago in a pancake form
I made this sandwich one Saturday when I had a jar of peanut butter to use and some very ripe bananas, it was a decision that paid off. Although the recipe is from Nigella Lawson's Bites, I've added a couple of rashers of bacon - as some commentators shared that the addition of bacon was also a popular addition by the king himself. 

Serves 1  
1 small ripe banana
2 slices white bread
2 scant tablespoons smooth peanut butter (don't use extra smooth)
2 tablespoons butter
2 rashers of cooked lean bacon (optional) 

Mash or slice the banana.
Lightly toast the bread, and then spread the peanut butter on one piece and the banana on the other.
Sandwich together then fry in the butter, turning once, until each side is golden-brown.
Remove to a plate, cut the sandwich carefully in half on the diagonal and eat.
