-but not green)
4 sl Ham
6 tb Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 c Double cream

Peel bananas, sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika (be generous with
this). Wrap a slice of ham around each banana. Place bananas in a

until golden brown. Serve cold (but not refrigerated).


  • Bananas with ham and paprika — This comes from the “Vogue French
    Cookery Book.” It seems to go down rather well as an appetizer,
    although it would make a nice supper snack, I suppose.
