Elvis Presley had huge appetites — for women, sure, but also for food. In 1960, James Gregory wrote The Elvis Presley Story (via the Independent) which details the Southern boy’s penchant for gigantic, heart-stopping Southern-style breakfasts. “Elvis loves enormous breakfasts complete with sausage, bacon, eggs, fried potatoes, home-baked rolls, and coffee.” In 1981, Presley’s uncle, Vester Presley, and a Graceland cook named Nancy Rooks, published The Presley Family Cookbook, which featured some of the King’s purported favorite foods, like fried squirrel and something called “Pepsi-Cola salad.”



In the 1995 BBC special The Burger and the King, longtime Graceland cook Mary Jenkins discussed Presley’s eating habits, particularly his fondness for butter-fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches, and how she once snuck Presley a bag of forbidden hot dogs when he was hospitalized. “The only thing I get any enjoyment out of is eating,” Jenkins said Presley once told her.



But back to peanut butter sandwiches because probably nobody loved them more than Elvis. In the ’70s, he discovered Denver restaurant the Colorado Mining Company and their ridiculously over-the-top food challenge: the Fool’s Gold.
