La Bouillie Banane

It’s a dinner entrée! It’s a hot breakfast dish! It’s a dessert! It’s good!

Cinnamon (sticks/bark if possible)

Peel, grate, and boil the plantain with the cinnamon stick till soft. Drain. Pour in milk and simmer with sugar and cinnamon till it is the consistency of pudding, or a little runnier; stir regularly. You can add your powdered cinnamon at this point if you don’t have the sticks to add earlier. Serve hot. Some like it cold as well; I can't comment on that yet.

Recipe thanks to Sr. Marie Thérèse, SSM

    Sounds yummy but I don't think I've ever seen a plantain before at the store. Or pretty much in general. Okay, what is a plantain anyway? :)

  2. Think large green banana, not sweet. I bet you could make this with regular bananas.

    okay, but grating bananas is probably not going to work too well...

  4. This is delightful. I am loving the Favorite Recipes from the Mouse House.

  5. Sr. Claire Marie adds vanilla, I've just been told. She's promised me that if I get a plaintain at Stop 'n' Shop, she will make me some next Monday, our day off. Yum! Comfort food.
