Fried bananas provide great counterpoint in this installment of awesome breakfasts.

Step 1:

Saute onions

Step 2:

Add broccolli and sliced red pepper.

Step 3: Cook Eggs

Clear spots in the vegetables and cook eggs.

Step 4: Slice Bananas

Slice a banana and fry the pieces on an edge of the griddle.

Step 5: Remove the Eggs

Flip the eggs, finishing cooking them, and pull them off.

Step 6: Add Tomato

Chop a tomato and add it to the mix.

Step 7: Add Spinach

Add a big handful of spinach and cook briefly until it and the tomotoes lose their water.

Step 8: Season

Season the vegetables. I used a roasted red pepper sauce, but an even better choice (to compliment the bananas) would be a lime ginger sauce.

Step 9: Serve

Once the bananas are slightly blackened, add them to the top and serve.

    It looks marvelous.
    Mmm - yes!
    This is how to cook: fast, fresh, easy.
    Thanks. Very nice.

    Hmm...unique palette of flavours....I'm not so sure about eating this for breakfast, however. Brunch would be more like it.

    Could I throw some honey or agave nectar in with the bananas to give them a bit more of a sweetness kick?

    Depends on the ripeness of your bananas. Cooking them tends to increase their sweetness as it removes water.

    Sure, I was just wondering because the other day I had fried bananas w/ honey at this Thai place. It was the only good thing they gave me.

    Oh, and anyone know how much is one of those big stove fryers? I could really use one of those.

    just made it with cauliflower instead of broccoli, and tomatoes instead of pepper... and well.. i used what i had, but it was great! thanks for the recipe! it looks and tastes great with some (japanese) perilla, or basil on top!

    The fact that you cant spell proves that it doesnt take much to disract you from your keyboard. Saeft is right, looks delicious. :)

    Where was the spelling mistake? OK, "grrr" isn't technically a real word, and there aren't any capitalisations (I'm British, hence -ise, not -ize), but I can't see any spelling mistakes. Maybe you mean the lack of apostrophe? In this case, that is entirely correct, as "its" is an exception to the possession rule in order to differentiate from "it's" (contraction of "it is"). Also, you are missing the apostrophes in "can't" and "doesn't" in your post, as well as the first "t" in "distract". I do go on, but you did talk about spelling. As you say, though, it looks delicious.

    You're right actually! Sorry, I think at the time I meant to point out his poor grammar. His spelling is fine. :)

    yikes!is it edible?

    can u really eat this for breakfast??!?! u must be kidding.

    look kinda like the ultimate fry up. not to bad. in my opinion i would not add the green in it. maybe sub them for mushrooms. i mean it would taste good all mixing on the one pan/griddle. i will definatly try it out, but the spin and broc is a bit to much for me.

    It looks like whoever cooked this was smokin! Ill stick to mushrooms and some cheese thanks... pad spinich LOL!

    That looks amazing. I will definitely try it soon. Thanks.
