WATCH: Have You Tried Saba Banana + Cheese Turon?

This is the combo you need to try!

Turon has to be a favorite merienda food. It's filling, it's sweet, and it's crunchy, too. The caramelized sugar that results from cooking the sugar makes it even better. 

Many have upgraded the typical turon by adding langka and ube to make it different but how else can you make it stand out from the usual versions?  

The saba-banana-and-cheese combo is one you need to try the next time you make turon for merienda. It's got a salty-sweet kick that may sound weird - bananas and cheese?! - but it's a great combination that you might just love. 

Banana Cheese Turon Recipe

  • Takes¬†30 minutes plus freezing
  • Makes¬†12 turon
  • 12 large lumpia wrappers, separated
  • 6 saba bananas, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 12 sticks quickmelting cheese, frozen
  • 1 cup brown sugar, more as needed
  • Cooking oil, for shallow frying
  • 1 Place 1¬†lumpia¬†wrapper on a clean work surface.
  • 2 Roll saba in brown sugar then place it, cut side up, on the bottom third of the¬†lumpia¬†wrapper. Top with a stick of cheese. Fold sides to enclose banana and cheese, roll, and seal end with water. Set aside.
