Banana Meat Loaf

Still Banana Week. Still Scary.
Do you think the cow here would be so happy if it new it was about to be Banana Meat Loaf?
1 pound ground raw beef (mmmm, mmmm)
1 tablespoon ground onion
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 cup soft bread crumbs
3/4 cup mashed bananas
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
Mix together meat, onion, salt, pepper and crumbs. Combine bananas and mustard. Add to meat mixture and mix well. Form mixture into a loaf and place into a well-greased baking pan (8.5x4.5x3) Bake in 350F oven for 1 hour.
Or you can bake the bananas and serve them separately. It suggests plating them around the meat loaf. Help.
What are you reading?

Oh dear, I think we need a banana detox, that recipe sounds just weird.

Although this may sound strange my ex-mother-in-law used to use bananas in her meatloaf. (She's Cuban) She would also slice them and use them in place of lasagna noodles in her lasagna. It was one of my favorites.
