    3       lb           Green bananas
    2       c            Chicken Stock
    2       tb           Butter
    1                    Small Onion, chopped
    1       c            Light cream or milk
    2                    Eggs, beaten
                         Salt
                         Ground Nutmeg
    1       pn           Cinnamon
    1       c            Grated Cheddar Cheese
      1/2   c            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.
