Green banana gratin

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
3 pounds Green bananas
2 cups Chicken Stock
2 tablespoons Butter
1 Small Onion, chopped
1 cup Light cream or milk
2 Eggs, beaten
Ground Nutmeg
1 pinch Cinnamon
1 cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
½ cup 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, 91/02/13.
