Happy Meal

Ben right now is in this cooking group at work, and he always comes home with these really interesting recipes from all over the world. This is one is from a colleague of his whose mom would make it back home and they called it "the happy meal" because it was so good. I was impressed with it because of the strange combination of savory and sweet, I would have never thought to mix bananas and bacon but it turned out quite delicious.

Serves 4

1 onion
14 oz turkey, cut into chunks (400 g)
3.5 ounces bacon (100 g)
1 cup of cream (250 ml)
1 Tbsp curry
1 beef bullion cube
1 banana
1 cup mandarin oranges
1 1/2 cup pineapple

Chop bacon and onion into small pieces and saute with strips of turkey in a large frying pan. Once they are cooked, add cream, beef bullion cube, curry and salt if needed. Last, drop in banana, pineapple and Mandarin oranges. Let them all simmer together for several minutes, and serve immediately with rice. Don't let the fruit simmer for too long, or the fruity flavors will overpower the meal (known from experience!).

You're right - that is a very unique ingredient list for a meal! Very cool that it 'works' though!
