I love fried bananas. Regular bananas. Baby bananas. Maduras. Tostones. Banana foster.
It might be the Puerto Rican in me. Actually, I’m pretty sure its the latina in me.
Fried baby bananas are amazing. They are like itty bitty individual mini bananas. I feel like I’m frying these bananas for fairies or gnomes.
Fried Baby Bananas
6 baby bananas, peeled and halved
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Heat frying pan to heat up oil.
Put halved baby bananas into frying pan. Fry for a few minutes until golden brown. Flip bananas to brown the other side.

Fried bananas are like golden fruity molten that explodes in your mouth when you bite into them.
Whatever you do, do not fry in butter. The buttery taste doesn’t mix well with the melted happy banananess. Also make sure they are ripe and not a little green. When the baby bananas are truly ripe the color of the bananas are a bright yellow.
If you do fry them a little green and not fully yellow, you might want to brush a little honey (even though honey is the devil) or fry them with butter and brown sugar. It would be like making banana foster, but in snack sized form.
Either way, add eggs baked in an avocado and you have an amazing breakfast.
Its almost Puerto Rican.
