Commander’s Palace (New Orleans) Bananas Foster

This classic is super easy and a great use for that bunch of almost-rotten bananas that’s going to start attracting fruit flies any second.

June 29: Bananas Foster

Slice 6 ripe bananas lengthwise. Brush with lemon juice.

1 c sugar and 1/2 c butter — cook over low heat until dissolved, add bananas, cook awhile til soft.

Serve as is or with ice cream or whipped cream or whatever. You are going to lapse into a sugar coma either way.
