French Fried Bananas in a New Style - Banana Scallops

The title here is the caption for these photos. Is it just me, or does the upper picture resemble a box of kitty litter a bit? Sorry.
Banana scallops are suggested as a part of a dinner menu:
Tomato Juice
Meat Patty (???)
Banana Scallops
Lettuce Salad
Orange Sherbet
Crisp Cookies (as opposed to?)
Beverage (Make it a strong one with this menu)
To make the fabulous Banana Scallops:
Melted fat or oil
1 1/2 tsp. salt (Get out the defibrillator)
1 egg, slightly beaten, or 1/4 cup evaporated milk (never seen that as a substitute before)
6 firm bananas
3/4 cup fine corn flake crumbs, bread or cracker crumbs, or corn bread
Heat fat to 375F. Add salt to egg or undiluted milk. Peel bananas and slice crosswise into pieces 3/4 - 1 inch thick. Dip into egg or milk. Drain. Roll in crumbs or corn meal.
Now these actually may be tasty, but not in that menu.
Tomorrow: Banana Meat Loaf. Really - I could blog from this book for a year, but I won't. I have too many other strange ones to share! I will have to try some of these, too.
