Baked Bananas in Jackets

Serves 6. Recipe is from “Artful Feast: An Elegant Lifestyle for Dining” by Dr. Nia K. Terezakis.

6 overripe bananas (slightly overripe or they will be bitter)

1. Place bananas in an ovenproof baking dish, uncovered. Bake at 325 F until skins turn black; turn them over to brown on the other side. (Do not overcook or they will burst and flatten).

2. Serve as a side dish with chicken, pork, or lamb. Carefully slit the peel lengthwise with the tine of a fork and eat out of the skin.
