Summer may have come to an end, but it’s still hot out. I used up some bananas which normally I would have made as a flambé and decided to grill them instead. We all loved the hot and cold combo! You will want to choose firm yellow bananas. Mine where a little soft so I couldn’t grill them as long as I wanted to without making them mushy.
Grilled Banana Split
(Created by Finding Inspiration in Food)
6 large, firm yellow bananas
1 1/4 cups lightly packed brown sugar
Prepare a medium-low (300°F to 325°F) gas or charcoal grill fire. Without removing the peel, cut each banana in half lengthwise.
Generously coat the cut side of the bananas in the sugar.
Place the banana halves on the grill, peel side up. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
Turn the bananas over and cook for another 3 minutes.
Remove the bananas from the peels (or serve in the peel). Top with ice cream and desired toppings.
