Recipe: Vegan Elvis Sandwich

recipe - sandwich - vegan

Happy (Belated) Birthday, Elvis!  I’m not a superfan by any means, but I have been to Graceland (twice!) and I know what the man likes to eat.

I also know what MY man likes, and it’s not bacon.  This is Phoney Baloney’s Coconut version, which I picked up at Urban Radish and stuffed in Abe’s Chrismukkah Stocking.

…with a hunka hunka Creamy Peanut Butter.

You could fry it in butter (or Coconut Oil to keep it vegan) but we found this to be pretty tasty straight up.  Or, as Abe described: “Weird but good.”

Sprinkles Ice Cream

They say cupcakes are going out of fashion, but you wouldn’t know it from the line that still piles up outside Sprinkles in Beverly Hills.

Of course, this particular store also has ice cream…

…in addition to their frosted delights…

The above is a mini red velvet with salted caramel – a winning combo concocted by my brilliant cousins Mark/Jen.  I opted for “plain old” peanut butter cup, which contains TCHO Chocolate, but am fantasizing about the day I return for a red velvet cone or cookie sandwich.

I’ve been familiar with McConnell’s Ice Cream for a few years – via their pints at the grocery store…

…now they’ve got a shop in LA – and I can see them “in person!”

They just opened at Grand Central Market and were giving out free scoops; you can imagine the line was a bit crazy…

…to keep it moving, I stuck to a cone and didn’t order any toppings…

…but I did try a sample of “Churros Con Leche” – filled with cinnamon/buttery flavor.

Double Peanut Butter Chip and Salted Caramel, both equally awesome!
