Recipe: Fool's Gold Loaf


This sandwich was rumoured to be the King of Rock 'n' Roll's absolute favourite. He once boarded a 3 hour flight to Denver just to eat the sandwich with friends before returning home.

Except our version is a little neater, with multiple layers of bread, peanut butter and Jelly.
