I was out of strawberries and pineapple, so this brunch looks kind of bland with no bits of the bright colors that I favor for my photographs. BUT – today’s Sunday brunch was definitely not short on flavor.
I made stuffed peppers last night for dinner in my Nesco six-quart roaster. Since there were only three peppers, there was plenty of room for four potatoes. We each ate one last night, so there were two left for brunch today.
I sautéed onion, some leftover cooked Mexican grey squash, bits of ham, and bits of Italian sausage in some bacon fat, and then cut up the leftover potatoes into very small cubes and added them, cooking it all until it was quite dry and crispy.
As I was moving some fresh bananas out of my way, and noticing that they were still a bit green, the little thought balloon blossomed over my head, and it said “Bananas Foster”.
I’ve had “the real thing” only once, and that was at Brennan’s in New Orleans in the 70’s, but I have read many a recipe for them, and have made them a time or two – many years ago. As I recalled, they were way sweeter than was pleasant, so I just browned these a bit in some ghee, with no butter and brown sugar “sauce” to go over them.
The pancakes went “nekkid” today (no blueberries), and the duck eggs were poached as usual, but the potatoes were a huge hit. The bananas were a nice change, and good because I didn’t have any colorful fruit to garnish with, but probably not something I would bother with often.
Looks good! )
I had Banana Foster in New Orleans a couple of years ago. It was delicious! Actually, all the food there was delicious – didn’t find one thing I didn’t like!
That’s the main problem with New Orleans !!! At least I walked enough to counteract all of the fresh French bread and butter I stuffed into my face at every meal!
LOL it is indeed a walkable town, yet there’s a food joint in every corner! 😀

Nice for a change, but I prefer things to be more colorful! The potatoes pretty much made up for no color! ;->

There may not be as much color as usual, but everything looks so tasty. I always eat bananas raw and with other fruit(s) and nuts, but I was able to buy two organic bunches, one ripe and one green, so I’m going crazy with them, including adding them to my protein shakes after working out. I’ll just about finish the ripe ones when the next bunch is ready.
Bananas are pretty versatile, and really nutritious, too.
