So, International Banana Day is right around the corner. No, we don’t mean Banana Hammock day. Those are two very different things. Stop thinking about banana hammocks… Back on board with the yellow fruit? Good.

Now you’re thinking, what do bananas have to do with bacon? Umm, haven’t you heard? Bacon goes with everything! Seriously.

And below we have provided you with some fun things you can do with bacon and bananas.

Oh geez. Get your minds out of the gutter!

Bacon Wrapped Bananas
These are awesome appetizers for any party and are quite easy to make.

Set your oven to 350 degrees
Cut banana into about a one and a quarter inch thickness (at least thick enough to wrap a strip of bacon around it).
Cut bacon into pieces that will wrap fully around the slice of banana. Place a toothpick all the way through to hold it in place.
Bake on a baking sheet or pan for about 30 minutes.

Bacon, Peanut Butter, and Banana Sandwich
Just like the title says. Create a sandwich as you would a regular peanut butter sandwich and add cooked bacon and sliced banana. Enjoy! (Honey or jelly/jam optional.)

Here’s a great recipe for Chocolate Bacon Banana Poppers!

And there you have it. Some fun things to do with bacon and bananas. Ugh- again! Get your mind out of the gutter!
