10 slices bacon -- cut in half
5 each bananas -- slightly underripe
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon curry powder

Blanch bacon in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain and dry thoroughly. Cut bananas into 1 1/2 inch chunks and wrap in bacon, securing it closed with a toothpick. Combine brown sugar and curry powder and sprinkle on wrapped bananas. Bake on rack for about 10 minutes at 350F until bacon is crisp and sugar is slightly caramelized.

My Notes: Don't blanch the bacon!  Bake it on a jelly roll pan until cooked but still pliable.  Makes for much better flavor.
