"Jenkins recalled the time Elvis phoned her at Graceland requesting "kraut-and-wiener sandwiches." She reminded him of his strict hospital diet but he said, "Mary, I got to have some of those sandwiches." Then he told her exactly how to make them: "Boil the kraut and wieners together. Take the wieners out, put them on a hot dog bun, and pile the kraut on top. Then fill them full of mustard"
