That’s right. I went there.

A wild banana split with caramelized bananas, peanut butter drizzle and crispy bacon.

So what makes up the Elvis banana split?

Caramelized bananas are the first layer. I simply sliced a banana and caramelized it in a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. I topped it with 3 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream, a good 1/4 cup of melted, creamy peanut butter, and 2 slices of crumbled bacon.

You heard that right.

2 slices.

I am posting this fantabulous banana split for a great cause.

To help spread the word and raise funds for ovarian cancer research, Foodbuzz is sponsoring a blogging challenge that revolves around banana splits. Foodbuzz will also donate $50 for every banana split posted by a Featured Blogger.

You can help too! To help raise money, check out the Kelly Confidential website. You can make your own banana split!


I know I don’t participate in things like this very often, mostly because I am a rebel without a cause and don’t like being told what to do or what to cook.

However, 1.) it is for an excellent cause, and 2.) my knees went weak at the thought of a bacon banana split.


Can you blame me?


So what do you think?

Can you handle the Elvis banana split?

      No wonder Elvis was so fat and died so young, eating junk such as this! Shame on him!

    Ha! My husband is pissed because when we were brainstorming for what to do for this challenge, he wanted to do an Elvis-themed split, but I insisted on my idea instead :-)

    He just said, “Bacon…man, I didn’t even THINK of bacon.”

        It’s a bacon pineapple jalepeno margarita! They also have a BBQ bloody mary that gets served with a rib – no joke! It’s a comfort food restaurant!
