A Regrettable Meal: Ham and Bananas Hollandaise
When I began looking through the recipe card collection after thirty years, I was pleasantly surprised to find that many of the recipes could be updated or adapted to fit our family's taste. Some, however, could not. Some were too horrible. This is one such recipe. I cannot fathom the thought process where, when asked to create a delicious meal, this was the final result. I suspect mind altering drugs played a role here. After all, it was the 70's. To me, this looks like a platter full of Freudian analysis just waiting to happen..."sometimes a ham-wrapped, hollandaise-doused banana is just a ham-wrapped, hollandaise-doused banana." Now, tell me about your mother.
