Bacon Banana Bread

Did this at the TO Eggfest yesterday...

Blend together -

6 ripe bananas (mashed)
2 cups sour cream
4 eggs
1 1/3 vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla

Mix -
3 cups sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
4 cups whole wheat flour

Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. I fried up 1lb. of bacon and crumbled it up. Stir a little over half the bacon into the batter (of course you can use more or less depending on your own taste). Sprinkle whatever bacon is left over on top of the batter once it is in the loaf pans.

Bake at 350* for 45-60 minutes (depending on the size load pan(s) you use)

This recipe was intended for use in "standard" sized loaf pan but, I usually make it in the smaller aluminum loaf pans. It freezes really well

Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I'll let the situation speak for itself as I still want to be able to get meat!

    This was great. I snapped a couple pictures. I'll try to remember to share them this weekend.

    No pics, but the inside looked like banana bread with little bits of bacon.

    Did the bread come out moist? I gotta try this when I get my BGE this weekend.

    I love it brother of the North. I would eat all 5 pans in one sitting. I can put down sine banna bread. Again, great job :clap:

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    I had enough batter to make 5 more loaves (which I did the next day at home) but did not have enough time to do at the eggfest
