Did you know that they are predicting a Bacon and Velveeta Shortages for the Superbowl this year? Well, if Jon Stewart reported it, it has to be a National concern! Check out The Hungry Games.
This sounds gross. I can ensure you that it is totally the opposite of gross. It was gone quickly...
Elvis Pie (Peanut Butter Cream, Bananas and Bacon)
Peanut Butter Pastry Cream
3 T cornstarch
1 ½ cups milk
5 egg yolks
½ cup sugar
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
In a heavy saucepan, stir together the milk and 1/4 cup of sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg yolks. Stir together the remaining sugar and cornstarch; then stir them into the egg until smooth. When the milk comes to a boil, drizzle it into the bowl in a thin stream while mixing so that you do not cook the eggs. Return the mixture to the saucepan, and slowly bring to a boil, stirring constantly so the eggs don’ t curdle or scorch on the bottom. When the mixture comes to a boil and thickens, remove from the heat. Stir in the peanut butter until it is completely blended in. Pour into a heat-proof container and place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate until chilled before using.
1/2 jar marshmallow fluff
6 slices bacon, cooked/chopped
2-3 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced thin
1 baked pie shell (or cookie/graham cracker crust)
To Assemble Your Pie:
Lay slices of peeled ripe banana across the bottom of the pie, sprinkle ½ of the bacon over the banana and cover with ½ of the peanut butter filling. Repeat and top with fluff, remaining bacon and shaved chocolate before serving.
