Bananas Broiled with Bacon and a Laugh

Bananas and bacon.  This could be heaven.  From a 1930 Fruit Dispatch pamphlet.

Cut each banana in two pieces.  Roll a strip of bacon around each piece and skewer with toothpick.  Place on broiler in hot oven.  When bacon is crisp and brown on one side, turn over and brown the other side.  This dish is easily prepared and wonderfully delicious.  Makes an ideal Sunday morning dish, is a “company treat” and is a joy as the main dish for a quick luncheon or dinner.

If I were you, I’d drizzle these with chocolate too.  Pork fat rules.

Is it just me, or is this dessert really happy to see me??  This is the “Candlestick Salad” from the same brochure.  Seems to be “up” to something.
