Elvis Presley grew up in the South and loved Southern home cooking. He didn’t always have the healthiest of diets and would often obsess over a certain food until he got tired of eating it.

According to Graceland archivist Angie Marchese, “Elvis grew up on good ol’ Southern food. He loved meatloaf, mashed potato, fried chicken…mac & cheese. Anything that he grew up on was some of his favourites.”

Elvis’ ex-wife Priscilla Presley once opened up about one of his meal obsessions. She said that he once ate meatloaf and mashed potatoes every day for six months. There was another snack that he would often eat so much that it has been called the Elvis sandwich by many establishments.
