If only they were plantains. You could use them green or let them go soft with pitch black skin. Lots of uses.

I would let some of them turn black and put them in the freezer for banana bread and banana bread muffins later.

For Valentine's Day, I made buttermilk waffles and topped them with sauteed bananas. I put a bit of butter in a skillet, some maple syrup, and then banana slices, topped with whipped cream, a drizzle of my dad's maple syrup, and some crushed walnuts. My parents have been married for 58 years next month, and this was their Valentine's Day breakfast (with a side of bacon, orange juice). I hate bananas, but because they eat a banana a day, I incorporated the bananas in their V'Day breakfast. They ate it up.

It seems like bananas are only breakfast, lunch (PB w/banana sandwiches) and dessert food.

You could make a Waldorf salad. I'm pretty sure some of these recipes use bananas.

I work in a French restaurant and have made this dish countless times. It is my favorite dessert. So good! I don't use cinnamon (not a huge fan). I just sauté the bananas in the butter with a pinch of salt til the butter browns a bit, add the brown sugar til it melts, and a healthy splash of brandy, pour over ice cream. The sauce crusts onto the ice cream, so you get this fantastic mixture of textures. Now I want some...

Not yet. SO is not a fan of cooked banana dishes so I'd be making it for myself.

Brennan's is where the dish originated.

I've done something similar, except used a liqueur and then flambéed it. It's funny how ridiculously simple and easy the recipe is, and yet how showy and tasty it comes out.
