When it comes to Elvis, Chef High Guy thinks we should all admire how he could take control of an audience with nothing more than a white jumpsuit and a quivering upper lip. He could also take control of some food, The King being in the pantheon of junky overeating, ahead of his time when it came to high-ass eating. One of the famous creations credited to him was the Elvis sandwich, made of peanut butter, banana and bacon, totally fried, of course. This high-ass recipe simply takes the concept to oatmeal.
What you need:
1 cup water
dash of salt
1/2 cup oats
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 to 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
4-second drizzle of honey
1 dollop of plain or vanilla yogurt
1/8 to 1/4 cup honey-roasted peanuts, crushed
1 slice bacon, cooked, crumbled (optional)
Bring water and salt to a boil. While you’re waiting, slice up that banana. Don’t forget to peel it. Add oats, cinnamon and half of the sliced banana. Turn heat to low, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes.
With about a minute left, add the rest of the banana (this all about preserving texture, which actually matters when it comes to food, bro).
When oatmeal is finished, keep it in the pot and loosely stir in peanut butter, honey and yogurt. I like the timed drizzle approach to honey because half of it inevitably gets stuck in the measuring cup otherwise. But then again, you’d probably love to just stand there licking honey out of measuring cups all day long. Do whatever you need to do.
Top with peanuts and optional bacon crumbles.
Of course, beyond the water, salt and oats, add more or less of anything to suit your high-ass tastes. And make sure you’ve turned the stove off.
