Banana Croquette

If you're asked to name Kentucky's most famous meals, banana croquettes may not be at the top. You may instead say Kentucky Benedictine Sandwiches or Mint Juleps, two Kentucky Derby staples.  

Hot Browns are also well-known. But how do the mayonnaise-wrapped, peanut-studded banana croquettes rank? Maybe not at all.  

True, this meal is poorly recognized outside of the Bluegrass State; some Kentuckians may be unfamiliar with it. Banana croquettes, however, are served—and enjoyed—in some fellowship halls, community picnic pavilions, and small-town cafes.  

This dish is... fascinating. That is the best method to characterize it according to our criteria. The Miracle Whip topping is sweet and acidic,  

while the peanuts provide a salty, crunchy contrast to the creamy banana beneath. In some aspects, it's similar to banana and mayonnaise sandwiches,   

but the crunchy peanuts provide a savory nuttiness and crunch.We used Miracle Whip, but we added a little sugar and vinegar to make it taste more like the prepared dressing.   

Everyone makes this dish differently, even us, but we hope this introduces you to another Southern specialty that may be appreciated for its creative use of ordinary ingredients.  

Ingredient – 3 Tbsp. Miracle Whip – 1 tsp. granulated sugar – 1/2 tsp. cider vinegar – 1 cup finely chopped salted dry-roasted peanut – 4 large lettuce leave – 4 medium bananas, peeled and cut in half crosswise
