Favorite Appalachian Recipes- Fried Banana Sandwiches

Okay, technically, this isn’t an Appalachian recipe, it’s southern. But, I grew up with these sandwiches and love them. And hey, if it was good enough for Elvis, it’s good enough for me! Here’s the recipe:

Fried Banana Sandwiches

4 slices bread (I use wheat now, but the best is good ole white bread)

4 Tablespoons butter or margarine

2 teaspoon sugar, divided

1 banana

oil or butter for frying

Spread 2 slices of bread with butter on one side. Slice banana into 6 slices lengthwise (I half the banana then cut three slices from each half). Place on buttered side of bread. Sprinkle one teaspoon of sugar on banana. Spread butter on second slice of bread for each sandwich, place slice on banana, buttered side down. Place gently in oiled or buttered skillet and fry on medium high heat til brown and sugar is melted well. Makes 2 sandwiches.
