A sandwich can taste great to one person and terrible to another. The banana with mayo just does not go, it has acidity and banana is sweet. I made it,i ate it ( at least tried), I throw it. I made it again as a sweet sandwich useing thick whip cream in place of the mayo. Try both yourself! I tested both at a party, nearly all the mayo were left, the banana cream filling were all gone. Action speaks better than words. davepearce1575@yahoo.com

I don't know about this one. I tried it and one of my daughters tried it and thought it was just ok. It was good but I think I'd rather eat a banana by itself.

My dad use to make me these as a kid. One of my favorites. People think I'm crazy because I love these sandwiches, but they just don't know how good they are! I also like to put chips on this sandwich too. I like the crunch against the texture of the soft bread and bananas.

This is such a treasured childhood memory...I love banana sandwiches and still indulge, occasionally! The bread must be fresh, and 'my' mayo must be Kraft! I sure appreciate your sharing this recipe, MizEmerilLagasse!

Talk about bringing back childhood memories!!! When I found this recipe, I just had to make one of these again. I had forgotten how tasty they were. I thought we were the only ones to eat this but I can see I was mistaken. Thanks for memory lane.

Sounded odd when I heard the recipe (sorry for being French :) ), but it actually tastes very good, perfect balance between sweetness of banana and bread against the acidity of mayo. Sometimes it does not have to be more complicated than that !!

This is very close to a recipe that I have used for years, but let me tell you how to make it better:<br/>Add 1 Tbs of white sugar to recipe, but mash everything together in a bowl or food processor, spread on bread and enjoy.

This is a sandwich that requires no recipe: start with 2 slices of fresh, soft bread (white or wheat); slather on as much mayonnaise as you like on both slices of bread (I like the sandwich to be rather moist so I use a lot); put as many banana slices as you can across one slice of bread (I prefer to cut mine in lengthwise halves); and then cap the sandwich off with the second slice of bread (pressing slightly to create a nice seal). Like others have said, this is a sandwich that reminds me of my childhood - I'd eat 2 of them most afternoons when I arrived home from school. And most definitely, this sandwich is a Southern specialty. Edited to add star rating.
