Bananas and Carmel Sauce

This is an all purpose, fancy things up sauce I make. we put it on ice cream, pancakes and really just about any thing. Depending on what I have on hand it can have many variations.

Take some bananas (usually 1 per person) and slice fairly thickly, 1/4 to 3/4 an inch.

take some butter (depends on how saucy you want the bananas) 1 tblsp or more. and melt in skillet. if the bananas are firm add now and sprinkle with sugar (about equal amounts with butter) and cinnamon to taste. If the bananas are soft add the sugar and when it is dissolved and becomes carmely add the bananas and cinnamon.

Saute the bananas and carmel til they are mushy on the edges. remove from heat and scarf down.

Because of the sugar and cooking unlike most banana dishes this refrigerates and reheats well.

I have used brown sugar or honey on the past instead of sugar, and have added nuts and coconut when I was in the mood.
