When is a banana a vegetable? When it's pan-fried, evidently.
1940s recipe from United Fruit Company ad
Peel all-yellow or slightly green-tipped bananas. Fry slowly in butter or other fat until tender... easily pierced with a fork... turning them to brown evenly. Sprinkle lightly with salt. Serve hot as a vegetable.
Cut bananas crosswise into halves or quarters before frying if desired.
