Fatty foods may have helped contribute to the King’s early demise, but if he ever comes back, this could finish him off a second time. It’s a burger topped with peanut butter, fried bananas, bacon, a sunny side up egg, mayo and American cheese. You can also add extra burger patties for $2 each to increase this burger’s killing power.

Peanut butter pasta
“Sounds crazy, but just wait.” That’s from Oddfellows’ own description of this dish on its menu. Peanut butter pasta is made with penne pasta tossed in a spicy and sweet peanut butter sauce with some cream, roasted red peppers, grilled chicken and goat cheese.
Where: Oddfellows, 823 Wheeler St., Ames.
Grilled peanut butter and jelly
This sandwich marries the concepts of childhood favorites grilled cheese and PB&J. Peanut butter and grape jelly are grilled between two slices of bread until they’re nice and gooey and ready to drip out all over your shirt. The sandwich is served with a bag of chips, furthering the childhood connection. Balance that out with a beer if you want to feel a little more grown up.
Where: Quinton’s Bar & Deli, 506 E. Grand Ave.
