You’ve probably had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or even Elvis Presley‘s favorite banana and peanut butter sandwich! There are so many different varieties, and some sound delicious, while others sound… interesting. In the South, many people love a good banana and mayo sandwich.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has been known to eat this sandwich. It makes sense since he was born and raised in North Carolina! People in the South started eating this simple sandwich during the Great Depression. Bread was fairly cheap and meat was expensive, so people began putting whatever they had in their pantry on slices of bread.

He said that he slathers on the mayo like it is butter, coating the bread with a light layer. You can do so on both sides. Then simply slice up a banana and put it on the mayo. Generally, white bread is used. Easy and delicious! What do you think? Have you tried it before?
