I end up with very ripe bananas more often than I would like. So this leads me to Banana Bread which I know there are tons of recipes for. This one is a combination of 3 that I’ve tried. Next time you have ripe bananas try this recipe out.

      I top it off with more cheese, some people like to put a sauce on top of it but I like it just with the sausage and cheese.
