Bacon Banana Brunch

BACON BANANA MAPLE SYRUP 

Best Brunch For 2021

One Of The Best Brunches - Just Ready For A Special Occasion Like Valentines Day.

Really easy and simple to make - and it only takes a few minutes.

Caramelized banana, bacon, maple syrup, and more!!

I am a big fan of pancakes paired with sweet bananas and salty bacon and sweet maple syrup - but by swapping the pancakes for bananas and adding in the orange and any other fruit you get a whole new level of brunch - for a birthday, anniversary, or valentines day. Or you just want to surprise your loved ones.

If you make this for valentines day - you will not go wrong - trust me - but it is really simple to make.

Start by zesting about 1/4 of an orange.

Next carefully cut the orange into segments -also keep the rest of the orange for the sauce later.

Add the butter to the pan and caramalize the bananas. Be gentle as the bananas become a little fragile as they cook.

Discard 80% of the butter from the pan - add the maple syrup, orange zest and then the cream. [see our video for good detail on how to actually make the sauce - it is a key component of this dish]

Add back the bananas and stir gently to get the sauce all over them.
