For Cinnamon Bun Croutons
- Melt butter in microwave or on stove in medium bowl/pan
- Add cinnamon and brown sugar and stir well.
- Add bread cubes and toss to coat well. Let sit about 3 minutes to absorb as much butter as possible :) See Photo
- Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes, or until bread is golden brown and crisp around the edges. See Photo
For Fried Bananas
- ***please note: If you don't already know you like the flavor of fried bananas, you might want to substitute a berry or pear in this recipe. The flavor is strong and it's unique, and, if you don't like it, it could ruin the salad.
- Slice bananas in diagonal portions, about 1/2 in wide. See Photo
- Melt 2T butter in skillet(I use cast iron) and fry banana pieces until golden brown on both sides, turning only once, if possible. See Photo
- Remove to drain on paper towels.
To Assemble Salad
