I know this sounds totally bizarre, but it is soooooo yummy and fattening...but yummy

slice the bananas length wise and dip into tempura mix, and fry in a little oil, until crispy, drag through some cinnamon and sugar and eat em warm...or if you really want to up your calorie intake, serve them with vanilla ice cream

super ripe bananas are good for cooking, like banana bread and what not or cookies that use bananas in them.

revolution gets me hot.

I make baby foood, but I am sure that is not what you were looking for  Grin

Slice the, toss them in a pan with a little vanilla, brown sugar and water.  I use that to top waffles, but you could eat plain or top with ice cream.

you can throw them in pancakes.
my favorite is banana, milk, honey and ice in the blender.  The honey is key.

yes yes BANANA BREAD! freezes well, too. Or, since you said you're sick of eating b-bread all the time, you can give it away as gifts! pretty if you make it in mini-loaf pans, & wrap in cellophane bag tied w/ ribbon.

ok, this might sound weird, but i like this curried banana corn salad. it's really yellow.

also, ripe bananas mixed with lemon juice and cinnamon are a great toping for curried peanut soup, or sandwiched between peanut butter cookies!

i second the pancakes!

I take the ripe banana, toss the peel, saran wrap the whole banana and freeze it.  Then I eat it like an ice pop - They taste just like those Froze-n-fruit ice pops you buy in the store.

My favorite banana recipe is from camping many moons ago. The riper...the better...

Take a banana and slice open the top of the skin...making like a "door" (I know that's wierd way to put it, but its the best i can do  Wink)
Scoop out a little of the banana and fill with chocolate chips and marshmallows. Replace the skin and wrap the whole thing with tin foil. Stick it in the fire (or on the bar-b-que) for about 5-10 minutes, turning frequently. When it is all done, open up the foil, but dont get rid of it. Its a messy treat and the foil acts like its own bowl....Yum.....I need a campfire.

if the bananas aren't too ripe - meaning - you can still slice them into pieces and they aren't mealy yet - banana pudding with nilla wafers is always amazing.  when i go to a party - i'll put it in an inexpensive trifle bowl - and then leave the bowl behind as a hostess gift.

banana pudding with nilla wafers

1 1/2 cups cold water
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
2/3 cup instant vanilla pudding powder
3 cups heavy cream
one box nilla wafers
3-4 medium bananas sliced

on the low speed of an electric mixer, blend the water, milk, and pudding powder until thoroughly mixed, about 1 minute.  refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or overnight) until firm.

in a seperate bowl, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form.  gently fold the pudding mixture into the whipped cream until well incorporated.

in a large bowl, starting with the wafers, make five to six layers with nilla wafers, sliced bananas, and then the pudding mixture, until all of the pudding mixture is gone.  end with the pudding and decorate with crushed wafers on top if desired.  refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.
