Elvis loved a good BLT, probably because two of the ingredients were at the top of his roster of favorites: bacon and big old juicy beefsteak tomatoes. He loved tomatoes. While you’re assembling this sandwich, you may want to put “Just For You” on the record player. And remember: Elvis preferred well-done bacon, not actually burned to charcoal, but cooked very crispy.

Plan a party the way Elvis and his boys would have done it in the good ol” days. Fry up some breaded onions, rewind the tape to See See Rider and rock ”n” roll!

Skillet Almond Pork might seem to be a far cry from pork chops, but the basic ingredients is clearly the same. Elvis’ taste seldom departed far from Southern-style home cooking, but he was willing to try a new dish if the main ingredient was familiar.

What is more indigenous to American culture than apple pie and the King of Rock ”n” Roll? Nothing. Not even burgers. Walk through any small town from Washington to Wisconsin and there’ll always be pies cooling on windowsills, and you can bet that many of them will be apple pies. And there were always apple pies cooling on the sills in Tupelo and Memphis.
