  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Fruit

 Ingredients List

  • 3 lb Green bananas
  • 2 c Chicken Stock
  • 2 tb Butter
  • 1 Small Onion, chopped
  • 1 c Light cream or milk
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • Salt
  • Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 pn Cinnamon
  • 1 c Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 c Fresh Bread Crumbs


Grated Gruyere cheese can be used instead of cheddar cheese. Place bananas
in saucepan and add just enough chicken stock to cover. Bring to a boil,
reduce heat and simmer until bananas are tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.
Using a potato masher, mash until smooth (chicken stock will be absorbed).
Let cool slightly. Meanwhile, heat butter in a small frypan and saute
onions until tender. Add the onions, cream, beaten eggs to cooked bananas
until combined; season with salt, nutmeg and cinnamon to taste. Mixture
will be quite moist. Place banana mixture in a buttered shallow baking
dish. Combine cheese with bread crumbs; sprinkle over top. Bake at 350 for
35 - 40 minutes or until top is golden. Serves 4 - 6. From The Gazette,
