New Orleans Bananas Foster
- 1/2 lb unsalted butter
- 2 cups light brown sugar
- 2 t cinnamon
- 1/2 t nutmeg
- 1 oz. banana liqueur
- 2 oz. light rum
- 2 to 5 bananas, peeled and sliced in thin discs

Melt the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small sauté pan or skillet over medium heat. When bubbling hot, add the liqueur and rum, avert your face, and ignite with a match; shake the pan until the alcohol is burned off and the flame dies down.
Add the banana slices and toss until coated.
Serve warm, with vanilla ice cream.
