Grill bacon until crisp, remove from the pan and drain on absorbent paper. Chop half of the bacon roughly. Mix together the flour and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the egg and half the milk. Stir in the flour from the sides of the well, until the mixture is smooth. Add remaining milk and stir well. Chop 1 of the bananas into small cubes and add to the batter, along with the chopped bacon. Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper. Heat the oil in a large pan and drop spoonfuls of the batter into the pan. Fry over medium heat until golden brown on both sides. Set aside and keep warm. Cut the remaining bananas diagonally into thick slices. Heat the butter in a clean pan and fry the banana slices until browned. Serve fritters with fried banana slices and remaining bacon strips. Serves 4.
