Good morning! I'm so glad you're here with me today.
Well, if you live in a climate that's turning nippy, then grilling season is on its way out. We'll eke out as many barbecued dinners as we can, but inevitably the grill will be covered in snow before long. Depressing, I know. (But on the bright side, crock pot season is on its way!)
Anyway, we don't have dessert every night in this house but occasionally I surprise the kiddos with something sweet. A few nights ago, I asked my husband to throw an extra foil packet on the grill next to the potatoes and brats. He raised an eyebrow when I told him there were bananas in it, but didn't ask. (He's used to me by now.) The result was quite delicious, and seriously...it was the easiest dessert recipe ever, and perfect for a get-together with friends. This is one of those no-recipe recipes. Please forgive the lack of precise measurements...I don't really think you can mess this up.
Grilled Bananas Foster
Slice 1 banana on top of a square of foil. Top it with about a 1 1/2 tsp. butter, 1-2 T. brown sugar, and a splash of rum. Fold the foil into a packet, grill, then serve on top of vanilla bean ice cream. One packet serves about 2-3 people. The topping is rich, so a little goes a long way on the ice cream.
I love to grill fruit as a side dish, but this was on a whole different level. I hope you try it!
