The Worst Dish Ever Created

Somebody must have snuck in some weed to the McCall's Test Kitchen. How else can you explain Ham and Bananas Hollandaise? (At least I hope those are bananas.)

My husband calls it "barf inducing." I can't tell you how tempted I am to serve this to my guests on Christmas Eve.
6 medium bananas
1/4 cup lemon juice
6 thin slices of ham (about 1/2 lb.)
3 tablespoons prepared mustard
2 envelopes hollandaise sauce mix
1/4 cup light cream
Only in the midwest would six thin slices of ham equal 1/2 lb. I live in the Northeast where we have deli's and know how to use them. If we can't see through our meat, it doesn't get eaten.

Oh, I suppose I should also give you the directions.
1. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. Arrange ingredients in baking dish.

3. Clean up barf.

4. Apologize to guests and order pizza.

Go get sick at

What exactly is Hollandaise? Is it the essence of Holland? Oh, I know I could Google it and find out but it's so much more interesting to ignorantly mock it. (and it does look disgusting)

Well, they do smoke a lot of herb in Holland so perhaps, in this case, you are correct.
