Banana Sandwich

  • 2 pieces of bread
  • 1 large banana
  • 2 tablespoons Miracle Whip


  • Smooth Miracle Whip over one side of each piece of bread.
  • Slice banana and place on Miracle Whip side of one of the pieces of bread.
  • Place second piece of bread on top of the sliced banana (Miracle Whip side down.)

Yesterday I made myself one of these great sandwiches and I thought I should share my secret recipe once and for all. The tanginess of the Miracle Whip works great with the sweetness of the banana. Try it out and let me know what you think. Enjoy!

I'm not entirely sure where this sandwich idea came from. I have heard of other people eating banana and peanut butter but never banana and Miracle Whip. My first memory of this great concoction comes from one of our family vacations to visit family in Virginia. We (6 kids and my parents) would all pile in the old brown station wagon and head out for the several days it would take to drive to the east coast. I remember my sisters in the back seat taking sandwich orders. I just remember ordering a banana and Miracle Whip sandwich. They obliged and I've been eating them ever since.

You poor thing. Do you really eat like this?

And I've been worried about the fatherless children in the world. No idea the bachelors of the world were nearly as dire.

My grandmother made banana and Miracle Whip sandwiches when I was a kid! We always had them on Fridays with a Coke float. It was a special treat we looked forward to all week.
If you have never tried one, you don't know what you're missing. I still enjoy banana sandwiches today and they always remind me of her. :o)

These sandwiches are awesome. My mom used to make them for us when we were kids on occasions. Loved them. I'm glad I'm not the only one.
