Banana fried with bacon


Banana fried with bacon

Let’s be honest: this is not a major culinary discovery. It’s not a new umami, raw fish, salted caramel ...


  • 3-4 rashers of smoked streaky bacon
  • a small knob of butter
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1-2 bananas


Cut the bacon rashers in half and place them in a pan with a knob of butter over medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes until done or crispy to your liking.

Fried banana and bacon

In the meantime peel the bananas, cut them crosswise in half and lengthwise in quarters. When the bacon’s cooked, remove it from the pan and add the maple syrup to the bacon fat. Add the banana quarters cut side down and cook for 3-4 minutes until slightly caramelised.

Remove the bananas onto a plate, top with bacon and drizzle with any juices left in the pan.
