Gluten-Free Delight: Ham with Glazed Bananas
If you like Bananas Foster, you’ll love this rendition with ham made with naturally gluten-free ingredients. Select fairly firm bananas so they don’t get too soft when cooked. If the ham you select has skin or rind encircling it, cut it off before preparing this dish.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
3 tablespoons plus 1 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup dark corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 large bananas, peeled
8-ounce ham steak, cut into 4 pieces
Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a nonstick medium skillet. Stir in the sugar until it melts.
Stir in the corn syrup and cinnamon and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer. Slice the bananas into the syrup and simmer for 2 minutes.
In a second medium skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the ham pieces and brown quickly on each side, turning once.
Place the ham slices on a serving dish and top with the banana glaze.
