this is a great New Orleans treat, created for breakfast, at Brennan's restaurant in the early 1950s. The original recipe is here transformed slightly by the inclusion of fresh pineapple, an attractive tropical touch. It's a great brunch dessert and you can make it at the stove, thus skipping the showy and risky tableside flaming that waiters working for tips must engage in.Source unknown
