When I was young, my mom got me a recipe box and some recipe cards for my birthday. I went to town copying many of her recipes onto my own cards. This banana breakfast is one of those recipes.

I don't remember my mom making this, but after I got married, I found it in my box and tried it. And I REALLY like it.
