Mexican Bananas

(3 servings)

  • 6 firm bananas (ripe yellow - a little green at ends is totally okay)
  • 12 flour tortillas
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
In a small bowl, mix together sugar and spices.

Peel bananas and cut in half lengthwise, brush with lemon juice (this prevents the banana from getting brown during preparation).

Place each banana half at end of tortilla, sprinkle with sugar mixture. Roll tortillas and again sprinkle top with sugar mixture after brushing the top and sides with evaporated milk.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes on a well greased cookie sheet. Remove from pan immediately and serve with hot fudge, chocolate sauce or even your favorite jam.

Seasoned bananas rolled in a flour tortilla and baked until warm and delicious. For breakfast or dessert.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank IrishGirl for this recipe.
