1 1/2 cups milk

1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

2 Egg whites

You've adjusted the recipe from 10 (as originally posted) to 10 Servings. The ingredients above reflect 10 Servings, but the instructions reflect the as-posted 10. You may need to adjust the times, temperatures or quantities mentioned in the recipe below as needed.

Whisk together first 4 ingredients in a large saucepan over medium-low heat; cook, whisking constantly, 6 to 8 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla. Let stand 5 minutes. Gently stir bananas into pudding mixture.

Arrange 15 vanilla wafers in a single layer on bottom of a 1-1/2-quart baking dish; pour half of pudding mixture over wafers in dish. Repeat layers with remaining vanilla wafers and pudding.

Beat egg whites and 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar at high speed with an electric mixer until foamy. Add 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until soft peaks form and sugar dissolves (about 1 to 2 minutes). Spread meringue evenly over top of banana mixture, sealing edges. Bake at 400 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

I think something is wrong with my stove because it keeps curdling. But a coworker at work told me to make it with a double broiler to slow the heat. But the coworker made it and it was great.
