One of my favorite things to do when cooking is to combine different tastes in one dish. Sometimes, my cooking experiment ends up in the trash, while some of these recipes become my favorite meal after the first bite. Cheesy bananas with bacon turned out to be an all-star recipe which can be served as the perfect appetizer for your next cookout or friends gathering.
