Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Bananas Flambees


3 bananas
3 tablespoon butter
1 cup sugar
2 oz rum

Peel bananas, splitting lengthwise and cutting in halves. Place bananas in a buttered, shallow, oven-proof baking dish and dot with butter. Sprinkle sugar over bananas. Bake uncovered at 325'F for about 35 minutes. Set dish on stove, being careful to keep warm. Pour rum in a long-handled spoon, which has been warmed by dipping in boiling water. Set a match to the rum and as it flames pour over bananas. As it runs down in the dish, ladle it up and over the bananas until the flaming ceases. The secret of this dessert is to have all ingredients warm, otherwise it will not flame well. This old recipe, as good today as years ago, was brought to Louisiana by a distant relative of Empress Josephine, at whose table this was often served.
