one of the hallmarks of a great fried banana is the heavenly texture: a crispy outer layer with a creamy filling.

  1. Melt a ½ stick of butter in a frying pan.

  2. Peel 3 bananas and cut them into thirds.

  3. Prep a breading station by setting aside two bowls: one with a beaten egg and one with ½ C breadcrumbs.

  4. Dredge your bananas first through the egg, then through the breadcrumbs (note- be careful to keep your wet hand and dry hand separate!).

  5. Add bananas to butter and brown them on all sides.

  6. Remove bananas and drain them on paper towels. You can sprinkle salt or cinnamon sugar over them depending on your preference.
