Must-Try BBQ Bacon & Banana Rolls

These sound a bit odd but are SO yummy. My family have been serving these for years at BBQs and I can't believe this hasn't already been suggested as a recipe! Anyway, give it a try and, hopefully, you'll love it as much as we do! I've said it serves 4 (2 a piece), but in my family this would only serve 2!

Directions

  1. Skin the bananas, cut the ends off and slice into approximately 4 pieces (you ideally need to cut them to the approximate width of your bacon, so depending on the size of your bananas you could get more or less slices).
  2. Wrap each slice of banana in one piece of streaky bacon. Hold in place with a cocktail stick.
  3. BBQ until bacon is cooked through (we like ours well cooked so the bacon is crispy).
  4. Serve!

Hubby looked at me sideways when I bought these out for a tapas stype lunch for guests. All quizzical looks disappeared as fast once they had tried these though. What a HIT ! The flavours work unexpectedly well together and compliment each other in a bizaare but very tasty way. I initially kept my plate back so that I could take a photo first and when I rejoined our guests DH was disappointed to find that it was my portion and not seconds LOL. Please see my rating system: 5 EXCELLENT stars for a recipe where you have no idea what to expect but are pleasantly surprised to find a taste combination that works so well. Everyone voted for a return showing on out tapas table soonest... Thanks !

Absolutely fantastic. These were served at cocktail parties in Haiti a lot, the flavor combination is wonderful. salty with sweet and both fit like a hand in glove.
