Yes, Banana Roll. It’s what happens when you have more “just about to go bad bananas” than you can use. It’s what happens when you find a pack of cream cheese in the fridge. It’s what happens because it’s Manifest Destiny.
Very similar to the Pumpkin Roll, different flavors, same filling, completely delicious. This is of course best kept in the freezer and thawed for a few minutes before slicing. If you don’t keep it frozen when you slice it, it will crush.

So buy too many over ripe bananas and whip up one of these babies, you’ll love it. Your family will too, if they get any of it.
