Have you ever eaten a banana sandwich?

Growing up, banana sandwiches was one of my favorites. You slice up bananas and put them on bread with mayo. Sounds kind of gross. But, it's really good. Every time I smell mayo, I think of banana sandwiches. Guess you could put any kind of diced fruit on bread for a sandwich. Have you ever tried a banana sandwich or any kind of fruit sandwiches?

Banana sandwich...yum!! It's still one of my favorites! I don't do it with the mayo though, I usually put just a thin coat of cream cheese, or a dab of light sour cream on it. Hmmm, will have to try it with the mayo, sounds interesting. I don't like the banana sandwich with the peanut butter, I really like it with the thin cream cheese though. (Sounds so good I'll have to have one for supper now lol.)

Cream cheese sounds like a great idea. I wish I had some cream cheese right now so I could try it. Next time at the grocery store, for sure. Even the sour cream sounds tempting. If you mix a little sugar in with sour cream it makes a wonderful topping for different things.

Oh my, I practically grew up on banana sandwiches. Banana, peanut butter AND mayo. Yum, yum. I'd love one right now. I skipped lunch and had a Starbucks latte instead. Wishing now for B/PB & M sandwich. How are you, BQ?

I've been dying to try cream cheese with bananas. For awhile, I went through a sour cream phase and I'm sure I would have put that on a sandwich with bananas, too!

I have to say I said "ewww yucky" when I read that you put mayo on it... Banana and Peanut Butter is the way to go, yum yum good... I like eating those, very nutritious, and very good.

Cream cheese spread over toast and then topped with sliced banana and some strawberry jam might be a nice alternative to the mayo. The mayo and banana is an acquired taste. You'd have to grow up with it, before it made any sense. P.S. Cute avatar. I've been away too long! I love the Care bears. Or, at least, did. They're still cute, though.

That's pretty funny because I just finished eating one. I love them. I was on another site a few weeks ago and somebody started talking about banana sandwiches, buti it turned out that none of the people in the conversation had ever heard of making them with mayo. Maybe I converted a few people to banana sandwiches with mayo.

Yep! I was inspired to post after eating a banana sandwich for lunch. I just figured everyone has tried them. And, then I remembered how shocked a couple of Mylot residents were over my cookie/peanut butter combo idea. So, I thought that I should post. Just in case. Thanks for your comments.

Ahh.. this just reminded me of my childhood years when I could not actually cook but still managed to make sandwiches. My favorite sandwiches of all time where the peanut butter and banana sandwiches. This simple sandwich tasted soo rich and delicious. I simply buttered up both slices of bread with peanut butter and sliced up banana to lay on top. Voila!

Now we are talking real mayo right? Not that Miracle Whip stuff? It sound pretty strange to me, but I guess it would we worth a shot. I made my son a peanut butter and bacon sandwich a few weeks ago and he loved that.

No, I have never tried this before in my life! I know that I could not eat mayo on it. Way to go for you in mastering this food! I have never even put bananas on a piece of bread before. I have only eaten an banana whole.. I have sliced the banana up in cereal before.. That is the only way. I have also put sliced bananas on pancakes. But that is about all that I have done with bananas. I have never ate any kind of fruit sandwich before..

I used to eat banana sandwiches but not with mayo. Mine where with peanut butter. I used to eat tomato sandwiches with mayo in the summer time.

Tomato and mayo sandwiches are really good! Especially if they are accompanied by bacon. Guess that defeats the purpose of a vegetarian meal.

Yes my mum used to make me banana and sugar sandwiches when I was a child, I used to love them. I have not had one for ages now, I have never had any other fruit on a sandwich though.

I've always wondered what a cucumber sandwich would taste like. I don't think cucumber is a fruit though.

Cucumber sandwiches are nice, especially with salad cream I have had them too!

You are very creative beauty. I have not tried that one and it is only now that I know banana can be made into sandwich fillings. We have lots of bananas here and the prices are cheap. should try how a banana sandwich taste.

Thanks Zandi! You are sweet for saying so. I don't usually put peanut butter on my banana sandwich, because I use mayonaisse on my bread. And, the combo of peanut butter and mayo might taste bad. But some people swap out the mayo for peanut butter and enjoy the sandwich. It's a classic Southern dish. You can even have this on toast. And, it's very delicious that way. Thanks for your lovely comments.

ieat banana sandwich too. i put the banana in a bun and put condensed milk. i like condensed milk that i even put it on my pancakes instead of pancake syrup. but now i no longer do that. i outgrew the banana sandwich already.... i outgrew the loving of condensed milk too. maybe we have different taste buds when we are still kids than when we are all adults already.

I do really like banana and peanut butter sandwiches. I have never tried bananas with mayo, but I do like cucumber with mayo.

Banana and brown sugar are yummy, not very good for the teeth though

Ooh, that sounds yummy. I've never tried brown sugar with a banana sandwich. Does that include the mayo as well? Besides, I haven't used brown sugar in my cooking yet (I'm new at cooking - the past few years), and I may just give it a try...especially this sandwich!

I love banannas on toast, It is delicious. Bananna sandwhiches are really nice too. I love them on cereal as well. No its not gross its lovely. Goodness I am hungry now, but I have no banannas in the house. I cannot think of any other fruit in a sandwhich. Maybe pineapple but I think that is all.

Actually I only used cheese, egg, bacon, jams to make the sandwiches. I haven't tried to use bananas to make the sandwiches. Right now I feel hungry:) Banana seems to suit to make many delicious foods:) I love China

I never heard of putting mayo on them. I heard of the peanut butter and I tried it but don't care for it but I do love just bananas on bread. Yummy.

Hi there beauty queen. I must say that i would have probably tried this type of sandwich even if it sounds strange, but i can't because i get sick (and may vomit) if i eat mayonnaise. I must say that i never tried any type of fruit sandwiches but i can say that my grandma uses to eat melon with bread.
@rainmark (4306)

Hmm.. I haven't really tried it yet in my entire life but it seems to be a healthy diet to eat banana sandwich. I'll give it a try. Thanks a lot for sharing.
