Roasted Banana a simple breakfast recipe that brings back good memories from the days when I visited my grandma’s country farm. She had a large piece of land designated for banana trees.That area was so huge that, as a kid, it was our special place to play "hide and seek" games.

  • 1 Plantain bananas and Burro Bananas pick one.


  • Place the banana in a hot skillet and roast, turn to roast evenly. It is ok if it rips. You can make a small slit to the peel before roasting if you prefer to let steam out thru it. This can also be done under your broiler. Or during your next barbecue, placing the bananas in top of the grill and have it as a dessert.
  • After a few minutes it will look like this and now it is ready to serve in a small bowl with some warm milk and topped with ground cinnamon. Look at all the caramel dripping from the banana.
  • And if you enjoy pumpkins, this is another way you can eat it. Baked pumpkin with warm milk and a teaspoon of brown sugar. These 2 dishes were common for breakfast or as a light dinner growing up at Grandma’s house. Now use your imagination and add the toppings of your choice.
