Passion Fruit Banana Pie

We are well into our busy season at the restaurant. Breakfast buffets, all-day conferences, 3 course plated dinners, and when all that is said and done- we clean. We’ve had a lot of changes over the last few weeks regarding staffing and I always feel a little re-energized when we get some new faces in the kitchen. You work so closely with these people over-time and sooner then later they start to feel like family. I’m sure everyone can relate to some of their co-workers in the same sense!
Anyone sick of pumpkin yet? I’m not either. But just in case you’re looking for a pumpkin alternative to bring to your Thanksgiving dinner, I’ve got you covered. Passion fruit and banana. Two flavors that were meant to go together. The tartness of the passionfruit is a perfect contrast to the sweeter banana. Topped with a little bit of whipped cream and you’ll keep going in for another bite. This pie can be made, and enjoyed in just 2 hours or can be made days ahead! I recommend using a springform pan, just because it’s that much easier to serve, but can be easily done in a pie tin as well.
