loved it!! took longer to cook than i thought it says, but well worth the wait!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this casserole! It's different than your run of the mill breakfast casseroles, and the bananas give it a slightly sweet taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVED this recipe! I don't eat pork, so substituted the ham with 1 package of deli turkey and turkey bacon. Absolutely delicious! I think if one follows the recipe exactly (using the right size baking pan etc... it comes out correctly. I used only two bananas as they were fairly large, and sliced them thinly. Definitely a repeater meal and loved by all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a very interesting recipe and tried it out on just my husband................I wanted to test it out first, to make sure I liked it, before I served it to guests. You never know, ever ones tastes buds are different and I didn't want a disaster. Turns out, even my husband liked it and I'll try it out on my family at the next family function. I've read some of the reviews, and it sounds to me that people should think about such different food combinations that they might not like, before trying out a recipe for the first time for guests..........I have no sympathy for people who don't like a recipe they serve to guests, before trying it out, experimenting with it, first. Also, if you don't feel you would like a banana in this recipe, try pinapple, instead.............even Paula, herself, said she couldn't believe how many people put pinapple on pizza.......taste buds are all relative.......... item not reviewed by moderator and published
horrible combination of ingredient item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would prefer to rate this a zero...but as I can't ...it's a 1...was simply awful. I was a huge fan of the show until we made this. My family wouldn't eat it...dogs wouldn't eat it. What a waste of time and money. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Eh. I agree, the bananas aren't great. I love sweet and savory, but the cooked bananas fail unless in bananas foster (greyish brown, but remained firm and not mushy as others said- still less than desireable). Due to all of the "soggy" comments, I added an extra egg yolk. Consistency was fine and actual casserole part was good. I would add extra cheese in the layers and on top in final minutes of cooking so it can actually rate the "cheesy" of its title. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The bread is so soggy that it ruins the rest of the dish. The top part was good with the bacon, cheese, and potato chips. However, the banana and soggy bread ruined the dish. I peeled off the top part for the kids to eat. Major waste of money! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this Casserole twice. The first time with the bananas did not care for the bananas being so mushy. The second time I made it I did with out the bananas and used crushed pineapple and it was so much better the pineapple complimented the ham and I used deli thin sliced hame instaed of thick ham. It was sooo much better. But I don't think I'll make it again. It was okay but not the rock your socks casserole. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Worst recipe EVER!!!!!! Made this on a wed. night and my stomach still hurts from this one, (it's now sat.). What a waste of time and money. Soggy with a strange texture and taste. I shudder every-time I think of it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think i know where she was trying to go with this. An all in one breakfast with french toast with bananas, eggs bacon and ham with potatoes. Sounds and smells great but ends up being very soggy and unappealing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this casserole for Easter Brunch two years in a row now, and it is delicious. The combination of sweet banana with savory ham is fantastic. I slice my bananas very thin and use about half of what the recipe calls for so they are not overpowering- I like just a touch of sweetness. I also like to use Black Forest Ham sliced very thin. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The combination of Ham, bananas and eggs is stomach churning, horrible experience. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe because the sweet and salty hooked me. This is the 2nd recipe I have tried from Paula and this is it! It's over. The thought of this Older Southern Lady cooking with her charming Southern Accent just made me happy and giddy. Well, even though I am sure Paula is a wonderful person...This recipe was awful and way too costly to throw out. Take my advice...Take the ham, the potato chips and the bread and just have a sandwich and the banana for dessert. Because the soggy, wet, combination together....Isn't working. I wish I would have read the reviews before I cooked this but I didn't. The last time I made some low fat cookies of hers and we threw them all out. I think I will stick with my all recipes.com because reading peoples reviews before I cook makes me alot less wasteful! Sorry Paula....My husband had a disgusted look on his face too...Guess we will go grab a burger................... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this for my family of 6. Everything tasted good except for the bottom bread. With the pan being coated in butter and both sides of the bread being butter, it was way to much butter. Ham andtopping had the best taste of the whole meal. We will make it again with a couple of changes. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was the most disgusting recipe I have ever made. I was so embarrassed to serve this to guests . They couldn't even swallow it, and with reason. Being a superb cook, I was almost run out of town on a rail. Does anyone ever taste these recipes before they are aired? If this one had been tested before, it would not be on any website! Ugh! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made the mistake of trying this recipe while my boyfriends parents came to town for a visit. God love their hearts, they ate the food but I could tell on their faces that it was awful. I tasted it and I have apologized to them over and over for such a horrible dish- not to mention, it's very expensive to make. Paula, honey this recipe should be taken off the webpage and never, ever cooked again. It's NASTY! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Do you have to use potato chips for the topping. Can you use something else? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this casserole it's so good & so easy to make I love the sweet savory combination. I highly reccomend making this casserole. I also highly reccomend that the people who gave this recipe a on or two star rating make this casserole since they've obivouisly never made this casserole before. But I know that when you make it and they make it you will all love it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My neice saw this air on the show and called me to make it for her. I couldn't figure out why, but assumed if Paula made it and it looked like a good idea, why not? I wish I had read the reviews first. My instincts were correct....this was a disgusting dish....the bananas give the whole thing a very weird flavor. Sorry, Paula....you did go bananas with this one! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Though I love a lot of Paula's recipes and have used many of them time and again, I will not be making this one twice. Simply put, it was just weird. The bananas were a distraction really, and it was just not that good. Sorry, Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just watching the show made my arteries close shut. So, I made a bunch of substitutions and it came out mo' better! I used skim milk, egg substitute, non-fat cheese, low-fat turkey bacon, and pineapple (no bananas). I left in the potato chips but cut that amount in half. No substitute for butter...not gonna happen....i already cut out all the other fat. Anyway, it was way mo' better... Mmmmmmmm.... item not reviewed by moderator and published
The sweet/savory flavor and fluffy, crispy texture is reminiscent of a monte cristo sandwich. We are not big ham fans, so we substituted smoked turkey and added a dash of worchestershire sauce. This is very filing and delicious! It would be great as a brunch entree served with fresh fruit. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe would be delicious with a few tweaks: First, I would omit the bananas. That just adds a strange taste to the casserole. Second,, I might use hashbrowns or potatoes in place of the bread. The sogginess (texture) is tough to swallow. Third, I would use more egg and less cream/milk. Lastly, I tried cooking the casserole at 375 and it came out pretty crispy on top - the best part was the potato chips and eggs. I am definitely going to try this recipe again with a few changes and see how it turns out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was so excited to try this recipe but without the bananas (not crazy about the taste) and I did tater tots in its place and it came out fabulous. . . . you also can do shredded potatoe (frozen) and heat it thru first in a pan then layer it. Also try and toast the bread lightly so it doesn't get so soggy I want to try toasted french bread as the bottom layer. . .yummy!! I love changing up dishes to suit my taste buds, so you can too and it will be fun!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw this show, obviously a re-run and decided to try it. I was concerned about the low reviews until I read one that said someone spend $75 on the ingredients. I don't know how many bunches of bananas you purchased but come on?! Even if you lived in NYC (and you have NO food in your pantry already) a loaf of bread, whole bunch of bananas, stick of butter, cheese, chips, pound of bacon, milk, cream AND a jar of nutmeg can't cost THAT much!! That's sort of the beauty of this recipe, that it's mainly staples from the pantry.I chopped the ham up rather than just laying the slices on it so that it would serve better. I used a half-recipe instead of a full recipe. It was fine. I may have used slightly less milk than called for since I saw where some folks said the bottom was soggy (I don't measure). This is basically a savory/sweet bread pudding, so I baked mine with that in mind--those do need to bake a long time for the custard to set. I started checking it after 30 minutes since I was baking a smaller portion. It is also important to let it firm up for a few minutes before serving it. It was ok, and would make a unique addition to a brunch. I'll probably make it again for a covered dish brunch or something. The savory with the sweet is a nice combination. I am not a huge banana fan, so I skimped slightly on those but the whole layer was covered, just not piled high. You could really serve banana on the side and get the same flavor combo. It's important to get sufficient salt/pepper in the custard mixture, but remember that the bacon, cheese and ham are salty, too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I couldn't wait to try this as I needed something for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving. Thank goodness that I made it first, I would have just died had I served it to my family and friends. It was the most disgusting thing I have ever tasted. The slimmy banana's, hot at that, were awful. What were you thinking. The people who liked it must be out of their minds or have dead taste buds. Guess I'll make a nice quiche instead, was hoping for something different but not disgusting. I agreed with the other lady that said she didn't want to give it one star but no choice there.

I love Paula and her recipes, but for me when she added potato chips to top it all I was done . . . my husband told me when we married 25 years ago never to top a casserole with potato chips. It would be grounds for divorce!! Just too many flavors going on in this. Sorry! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was easy to make however, I did not care for the taste and texture of the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The casserole itself is a long known classic - Paula added way too much butter. Ends up greasy. But... adding bananas was just doing something to fit a category. Shame on her - that kind of cooking isn't down home or even kitchy. It's just a way to add more recipes to a list that is probably full with ways to cook food. Time to look for a new path without the food looking silly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is SO bad!!! My Uncle made it, and it was not edible. He said when he watched the show this was on, he should have known, because Paula always tastes her food after making it, and she didn't taste this one. DO NOT MAKE!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Paula did an awesome job presenting this recipe on TV. We quickly ran out to get the ingredients and prepared it for the family the very next day. Something just did not seem right about and we think it was the bananas. All 4 of us were not happy with this particular recipe. No worries. We'll find a new recipe to replace it. Still ove you and your show! item not reviewed by moderator and published

How can this recipe be listed on Food network as a TOP 10!!! I just had to try it to see if I was missing something with this recipe. OH MY GOD, GROSS! I think Deen can makeup any recipe and people will go nuts! SAD to waste hard earned money, especially with the economy as it is now item not reviewed by moderator and published
My son and I made this just for the fun of it while the youngest one slept. Needless to say, it was one of the best things that we've had. We topped it with homemade HOT salsa. The combination was great. We finished our meal with canary melon. Leftovers won't be frowned upon here. Don't take our word for it, try it tonight! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Paula should be ashamed of herself! How on earth did Food Network find her and accept her as a t.v. worthy chef...what is she teaching us, the art of becoming diabetic or how to have a heart attack in one night??? Seriously, this junk wouldn't even be served in the most disgusting diner, please somebody review her recipes before wasting our time!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Everyone loved the unusual combination, but the recipe on line has a flaw. When Paula did the recipe on TV she baked for 15 minutes. At least I thought so. Under cooking time the recipe shows 10 minutes, but then the recipe says to bake for 45 minutes. I went with what I saw on TV and baked for 15 minutes. Everyone loved. No wonder so many people are complaining. They are baking for 45 minutes and the bananas are black. LOL Food Network should check the transcript and see the real time for cooking this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband, daughterm and I all tried this recipe. The bananas didn't add anything to the taste that we were excited about. The bottom layer of bread was too soggy. I know I cooked it long enough for it was bubble and golden brown. We have been trying to figure out how to tweak it abit. Like leave out the bananas and bread, and maybe replace the bread with a layer of Hash browns, and also leave out the potatoe chips. It was edible, but I'm trying to figure out what to do with the leftovers, I hate to throw them out. I thought about putting a piece in a fry pan and see if it would cook up that bottom piece of bread alittle better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Although I baked at 350 for 45 minutes as directed, the bottom slices of bread were soggy and uncooked, and you could not tell until you were ready to serve it. The Bananas were an interresting concept, but I just don't think they made a good combination with the other ingredients. There was no clear directions on how much deli ham to use. The deli sliced ham that I used was not tender enough to cut with a fork, causing guests to use steak knives to cut bite size portions. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love Paula and most of her recipes are great, but this one just missed the mark. The banana flavor did not work with the other ingredients. I'm an adventurous eater and often like strange combinations, but not this one. After cooking for 45 minutes, the bananas tasted a little fermented and overpowered the other ingredients. I won't make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe itself was accurate, still the flavor and texture fell flat with my husband and daughter. If I ever try this again, I might use a more savory replacement for the bread and chips, like rosemary bread or herb seasoned breadcrumbs. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for my family and a couple friends last night and I got mixed reviews. I think the main complaint was that the food seemed a bit fatty. Maybe because of the butter or maybe the cream. I would love to try this again and modify it to a low-fat version. If anyone has a suggestion I would like to know. (Sorry Paula but butter is not always better.) item not reviewed by moderator and published
My mom always asks, "It's good, but should I make it again?" The answer to this recipe is a resounding "YES!" Super-easy and delcious. I can suggest using bananas that are more on the green side. They seemed to hold up much better. You lose a little of the banana flavor, but they don't cook to mush or turn brown. item not reviewed by moderator and published

The cooked bananas leave an unpleasant after taste. Three of us tried the receipe without telling each other what we thought - all with the same result. We resorted to scraping off the bananas which made the top layer edible. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Truly a horrifying dish. In defense of Paula, I submit that we all have a few freakazoid taste buds that are very accepting of weird flavor combinations. While different for each of us, I think we all have them. This one wasn't resonating with my freakazoid taste buds, but obviously others had a different experience. I do like that Paula has the courage to just be a crazy cook, sometimes. GO PAULA. item not reviewed by moderator and published

First off, may I say this? If you change a recipe and it don't turn out good...well, don't blame the original and give it low marks. With that said...this is a fairly decent recipe.

Ok, so this is the first Paula Deen recipe I've made, and I must say I was very dissapointed. I went to the store to get bananas, and cheese, and came out spending $75. Then got home and forgot how many eggs she used so I pulled up the recipe and saw the reviews....Like many others, I thought...hey I'll try it. UGH. My 2 yr old wouldn't touch it. When I made him try a bite, and asked him if he wanted more he replied, "nope, no, uhuh." My fiance said I don't want you to be mad if I throw up, and the first bite I took was ok, so I made a serving, and the more I ate, the more I felt sick. I'm sorry but this was not a good recipe. And after reading all the reviews, I only used 1 banana. Waste of time, money, and calories. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I "tweaked" this recipe as well. When I saw this on TV I wanted to make it RIGHT AWAY so I used what I had on hand. I toasted and used pumpernickle bread, sliced BBQ Turkey, Velveeta cheese, pepperoni instead of baccon, and used fat free half and half and "I can't Believe it's Not Butter" spray. Also, I used baked lays instead of the regular chips. MAKE THIS RECIPE. YUMMMMMMMMMM. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe was very easy to make. I made it for a family get together. The bananas threw everybody off. Most everyone tried it, but most didn't like it. The 2 pickiest eaters liked it though which surprised me. Some people tried to pick out the bananas, but they said that didn't work because the banana flavor was throughout the entire casserole. I didn't love it, but I like it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i really liked this recipe, however, i would consider replacing the bananas with pineapples....either way it's delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have mixed feelings about this one. Although I really like the flavors, the bananas, no matter how firm they were, still got too mushy. I would take others suggestions to use pineapple instead, also. The pineapple holds up better in cooking and you need that texture to help the flavor "pop." item not reviewed by moderator and published
After seeing all the reviews, I didn't know what to think about this recipe. I decided to try it but I tweeked it alittle. I made two 8 x 8 pans instead of one 9 x 13 and made one with banana and one with pineapple. My husband and daughter prefered the pineapple and I liked the banana. It was fun to experiment with the two flavors. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I know there have been some mixed reviews (to say the least) about this recipe. I happen to be one of those people who LOVED it! It's definitely a breakfast or brunch casserole (as Paula said), but it's great. I didn't have any ham or regular potato chips on hand, so I used deli sliced turkey and Original Pringles instead. My whole family enjoyed it, and it was nice to make something with ingredients that I didn't have to go to the store for. I just used what I had, and it still turned out great. My husband thought that the ham would have added extra flavor, but he liked it the way it was. One of my favorite parts of it was the crispy, crunchy top. The cheese, chips, bacon and custard really set up into something wonderfully salty and delicious. It was nice to have the sweet bananas to cut that. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe. If you're adventurous try it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Overall this casserole works, except for the bananas. After reading the reviews, I went ahead and made it, however I cut everything in half, as I didn't need so much. It wouldn't be a bad dish to serve WITHOUT the bananas. I agree with others that maybe pineapple would be better. Paula missed the mark with this one, I wouldn't make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A lot of people don't like this recipe, but you have to be open to different flavors. I followed the recipe exactly as she said and it turned out wonderfully! I don't know if buttering each piece of toast was necessary because the casserole was just so moist with the eggs anyways. If you don't want to put bananas, you don't have to...I'm sure it tastes great even without them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Waaaay too much banana taste. I should have known, but I tried it anyway. This will NOT be repeated at out home....cloying,sweet and gooey. Such a waste of valuable food,time and effort. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was leery to try this recipe because the combination sounded just really wierd but it being a "Paula" recipe I was anxious to try it. I took it to work none the less for my birthday treat. I spent almost $15.00 on the ingredients and I could not believe how truly bad it was, I actually gagged. I now know not to try this again. I am one to try anything once, but I was really disappointed in this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This casserole was a new experience and we enjoyed it but prefer a less sweet taste. Lightly toasting the bread might have helped the consistency. My son-in-law thought the bananas were mushrooms! He had two helpings. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm a huge Paula fan so I hate to say this, but this recipe did not taste good. What made it bad was the bananas. I might try the recipe again and substitute sliced turkey breast for the bananas and also leave out the nutmeg.

We tried the recipe for Cheesy ham and banana casserole last night. No one liked the bananas in the casserole and the casserole on a whole was not good. Everyone had to have something else to eat and the dogs ate our dinner. We love to watch Paula on TV and have enjoyed other recipes she has but not this one. item not reviewed by moderator and published
First time I tried it...not so good. A can of really, really well drained pineapple instead of the bananas did the trick. I also threw in about 1/2 cup of Gruyere in the topping and now I'm in love with this recipe. I think this is one reason why I love Paula's recipes so much - they're easy to adapt to different ingredients/tastes/textures. Keep it going, Paula!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ha Ha Ha, Very funny Paula. This must have been an April Fool's Day show. This is the NASTIEST thing ever. I'm made some on Paula's things before and usually they are very good, but what gives with this one. Please, go back and try again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw this casserole yesterday and thought the combo of ingredients sounded so odd that it must be really good. That on top of Paula's enthusiasm made me want to try it a couple of days later. Sadly, it was such a huge disappointment. No one would eat it. I ended up throwing it all out-- and what was on everyone's plate was also thrown out. The textures were wrong. The flavors were wrong. The dish was just wrong. Sorry, Paula, but this dish is not worth the time or money. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This seemed like a whimsical adventure. I thought that the pairing of these ingredients could turn out to be really bad or really good and wanted to try it. Actually, it's neither. It's...well, FOOD ...meaning sustenance. Paula said that the taste would be surprising. What was surprising is how unsurprising it was. After dinner, we gave the remainder to a co-worker who buys canned spaghetti from a vending machine for lunch. He'll love it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I really were surprised at how good this dish was. It would be absolutely perfect as a brunch dish. The crispy top was perfect.

I love anything with bananas so I tried Paula's casserole. She said we'd be 'darned surprised'. I was! Way too many flavors, cheese, chips, bacon. Only tasty item was the warm bananas.

This absolutely did not work as a favor combination for us. Funny thing, Paula mentioning people who liked pineapple on pizza, because that is what I ended up doing in order to salvage dinner, remade the dish using canned pineapple in place of the bananas and upping the cheddar cheese in the topping and ending up with a dish my guys really liked.
