What Elvis Presley Ate – Sunday Meatloaf. The King of Rock and Roll was born 77 years ago on January 8, 1935. What better way to celebrate than with a recipe from the Presley Family Cookbook? But first, a little history! Though not an observant Jew, Elvis was aware of his ancestry. As a child, he was told to hide his Jewish roots because of existing prejudice against Jews. Even though they hid their family history, Elvis’ mother Gladys was apparently proud of their Jewish heritage.
