Oh, Honey!

Amaretto and Honey Grilled Bananas

Amaretto is an Italian, sweet, smooth, almond liquor.  It is wonderful in cookies, and cakesor even savory dishes like lamb.  My dad is a retired Italian man, which mean the 3 liquors always on hand are: grappa, limoncello and amaretto.  A couple other kitchen staples of my parent’s are bananas and plain Greek yogurt.  One morning I was staying at my parent’s house and decide to throw these flavors together for breakfast.  This is shaping up to be a deliciously spiked Sunday….

The Amaretto and honey are so delicious together! Beware though, I kept making more and before I knew it I had the munchies :o)

I put this over greek yogurt, but how delicious would this be poured over pancakes!?
