Hi guys today I’m making Caramelised Bananas & Bacon on a bed of Sweetcorn, Spring Onion and Cottage Cheese sauce. Its quite simple to make it just requires a bit of prep. Cook some bacon. I use a George Forman grill but if you prefer you can cook it in a pan or oven. Then pick some ripe bananas.
Slice them in half and sprinkle with cinnamon. If you aren’t a fan of cinnamon you can make it without, but I like to add it for the flavour also because it absorbs any excess water. If you have a super sweet tooth u can add a few drops of maple syrup here. Leave this on the side we’ll use these later.
Now this is down to personal preference but I do not like the lumps in cottage cheese so I blend it into a smooth paste but if you want you can keep it with lumps. I use my Vitamix.
Chop up your spring onions and Jalapeños as small as you want to. I chop them quite finely because I don’t like them chunky. Then mix these all together with the drained sweetcorn.
Mix the smooth cottage cheese with the vegetables and add salt and chilli depending on how spicy your chillies are and how hot you like it. Leave this aside.Heat a non stick frying pan and leave for a minute to heat up completely. Then place the bananas in the pan and leave to caramelise. Flip over after around a minute then turn of the heat and assemble.
I normally put the base underneath with the bananas and bacon on top and a sprinkle of cinnamon. If you fancy you can add a drizzle of maple syrup.
