  • About


  • 6 Bananas
  • 2 tablespoons drippings


Peel and remove the coarse threads from rather green bananas, cut the pulp in half inch slices on the bias—thus making longer slices than if cut directly across. Roll the slices in flour and cook in hot bacon fat drippings or olive oil, first on one side and then on the other, to a delicate brown color. Serve with bacon, sausage, lamb or pork chops in the place of potato. Or, use to garnish a mound of mashed potatoes against which the sausage are laid.
