Public Service Announcement

We interrupt our normally scheduled programming to bring you this Important Banana Information!

All details regarding bananas are specified in this helpful guide published in 1926...

Most importantly, we urge you to review this 1973 recipe from McCalls that displays what not to do with bananas...
Ham and Bananas Hollandaise
From McCall’s Great American Recipe Cards

6 medium bananas
¼ cup lemon juice
6 thin slices boiled ham (about ½ pound)
3 tablespoons prepared mustard
2 envelopes hollandaise sauce mix (1¼ oz. size)
¼ cup light cream

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly butter a shallow 2-quart baking dish.
Peel bananas and sprinkles each with ½ tablespoon lemon juice, to prevent darkening.
Spread ham slices with mustard. Wrap each banana in a slice of ham. Arrange in a single layer in casserole. Bake 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, make sauce: In a small saucepan, combine sauce mix with 1 cup water, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and cream. Heat, stirring, to boiling. Pour over bananas. Bake 5 minutes longer or until slightly golden.. Nice with a green salad for brunch or lunch. Makes 6 servings.

This is a test. This is only a test.

Sorry if you threw up a little bit in your mouth.

  1. This is hilarious because I subscribed to these cards when I was first married. I've had this recipe card hanging on my fridge for over 25 years and it never fails to invoke laughter from anyone who views it for the first time. I had another card displayed that was a recipe for "prune whip", that one of my daughters absconded a few years back and now displays on her fridge. Never made either, BTW so I can't actually review it... :)
