  Categories: Fruits, Cheese/eggs
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       3 lb Green bananas                       1 x  Salt
       2 c  Chicken Stock                       1 x  Ground Nutmeg
       2 tb Butter                              1 pn Cinnamon
       1 ea Small Onion, chopped                1 c  Grated Cheddar Cheese
       1 c  Light cream or milk               1/2 c  Fresh Bread Crumbs
       2 ea Eggs, beaten                   
  
   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.
