Grilled Bananas Recipe
My first thoughts when getting ready to write this post on grilled bananas were “They’re gonna think I am weird”.
But honestly, if you are just now figuring that out about me, we got us one Jim Dandy of a learning curve here. Just about all Southerners are weird (the good ones at least). Where else do folks call every carbonated beverage a “coke” or “co-cola” despite flavor, brand, or location?
Now outside of the south, folks might call our weird behavior “eccentric” but everybody knows eccentric is just weirdness puttin’ on airs and Southerners don’t put on no airs.
Now you know I’m not going to bring you something unless I absolutely love it. This grilled bananas recipe wins bonus points with me also because it uses up food that might otherwise have gone bad or wasted and that’s another tender spot of mine.
People that come from my kind of people don’t like to waste food.
This is a great last minute dessert to have while you’re grilling out or cooking in.
Just put them on when you put your hamburgers on and wait til they turn good and black.
Don’t you just love it when you make food that is SUPPOSED to turn black? Me too.
Ingredients for Grilled Bananas
- You’re gonna need:
- Brown Sugar Use light or dark brown sugar, whatever you have on hand is fine.
- Cinnamon We also found that a little cinnamon is DIVINE mixed in as well.
Smoosh up your margarine and brown sugar really good.
You will have a nice pasty mixture like this.
If you don’t get you a pinch of that I’m going to be very disappointed in you.
Anytime you are making something with brown sugar, it’s very bad luck not to taste it 😉
Lay your banana on its side and cut a slit in it but don’t go through the bottom of the peel.
Stuff it with your brown sugar mixture.
Set it on the grill or in a pan. It doesn’t have to be any special temperature, just whatever you have it set on for what you are cooking is fine.
Watch it ….
Your banana is cooking to ooey gooey goodness.
Almost done but not quite. Lets let it get nice and black.
NOW we’re talkin’!
This is delicious served alongside ice cream. You can eat it out of the peel or…
Take it out and chop it up a bit to use as a topping for your ice cream.
If you’re not using your smile, you’re like someone with a million dollars in the bank and no check book.
