20 years ago I worked the graveyard shift in a hotel restaurant in town. This was one of the most popular items on the menu with the late night drinkers.
- 2 slices bacon
- 1 slice bread
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 slices cheese (a sharp or tasty brand)
- Cook bacon under a grill (medium-high) until crispy.
- Toast bread and then butter it while hot.
- Place bacon on top of toast.
- Slice banana and place on top of the bacon.
- Then top with cheese.
- Place under the grill (medium-high) until golden and bubbly.
- Slice into 3 fingers and serve.
Uncommon but nice combo! DH found the sweet banana to be a nice contrast to the salt of the bacon and sharpness of the cheese. This was made using American slices as that is what I had on hand and pre-cooked bacon. With DH hovering only got one pre-cut photo that was only so-so and thus did not post sorry. Thanks for the post.
This was easy enough to make especially when, instead of grilling bacon, I sprinkled a generous tablespoon of bacon bits over the toast before adding the sliced banana & cheddar cheese! Very unusual & tasty snack, & I think these, cut even smaller, would make a nice addition to my finger food counter when I'm hosting! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Such an unusual combination it just had to be tried. My DH and I really enjoyed these for lunch, in fact Dh wanted them the next day. I used Old Smoothy vintage cheese and that seemed to work very well. One quick recipe that will be used again and again.
