Brown Bananas Part 2

Since yesterday’s post on brown bananas was so popular, I thought I’d share one more brown banana trick. Also because I had one last brown banana and I hadn’t yet read Kim’s comment on freezing them. Great idea, by the way. Anyhow, here you are, another post about bananas. Bananas!

Recipe for Fried Bananas

What you’ll need:
A brown banana
Cinnamon and sugar to taste

First you need to melt a lot of butter in a pan. Don’t be stingy!


You don’t have to melt your butter in the shape of a little dancing man like I did, but if you do, your fried banana will taste that much better. No pressure.

Peel your banana and slice it in half lengthwise. Lay it in the pan to fry.


Let it sizzle for a minute or so, then begin pushing it around the pan with a spatula. So it will soak up more butter. Also, maybe add a little bit more butter, because butter is delicious. Flip the banana slices frequently, so that both sides will get nice and golden. As the banana fries it will get softer, and it might break up into smaller pieces. That is a-ok.

getting golden

Mmmmm. Nice golden fried bananas. Once they seem to be very golden and hot and gooey, plate them and sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar. Eat ’em up and marvel at all the wonderful things you can do with over-ripe brown bananas.

I fried up these babies last weekend, but all this talk about butter and sugar and gooey banana goodness is making me hungry! Excuse me while I go fry up anther two or twelve bananas.
