Let’s set the record straight: I love sandwiches. Sweet or salty, hot or cold, there’s a special appeal that this culinary creation has, the marriage of convenience and good taste. But this PB&J bacon loaf, aka the “Fool’s Gold Loaf” and a favorite of Elvis Presley’s, successfully managed to put my love of sandwiches to the test.
