Broiled Bananas

Broiled bananas, in my opinion, make one of the tastiest breakfasts in existence. The key is to get a chewy sort of texture out of the brown sugar that goes beautifully with the warm mushy banana. As a person who typically hates bananas, this one is a winner- you really can't lose with the banana-lemon juice combination. As well as a lovely breakfast, broiled bananas on top of vanilla ice cream can make a great dessert. Or you could just have it for breakfast...on ice cream.

slice crosswise and lengthwise (into 4 pieces): 3 medium ripe bananas
place in a lightly buttered baking dish

brush both sides of the banana with: 2 T lemon juice (FRESH FRESH FRESH!)

drizzle: 2 T butter
over bananas

2 t brown sugar
combine: 1/4 t cinnamon
1/8 t ground allspice
dash ground cloves

sprinkle over bananas

broil for 5 minutes about 5 inches away from heat- let brown lightly
serve hot
