"A great ending to a lovely summer barbecue! Adapted from Country Living magazine. The original recipe called for brandy, but I have subbed vanilla."

directions

  • Heat the grill to low. Make and incision lengthwise on the side of each banana, leaving 1 inch uncut at both ends and the skin intact. Spread open the cut and place 2 teaspoons of butter pieces, 1 tbs. brown sugar, and 1 teaspoons vanilla inside.
  • Grill, covered, until the butter mixture has melted and bananas are heated through, 8 to 10 minutes. Move the bananas to 4 separate sundae dishes, carefully flipping the bananas over and pouring the sauce into the bottom of each dish.
  • Peel off the skins, and top each with an equal amount of ice cream; add warm chocolate sauce, and nuts, if desired. Serve immediately and enjoy!

    This is just wonderful! I used the vanilla extract, which was great, and am looking forward to trying out other flavors and brandy, as suggested. I used toasted pecans and added some whipped cream and a maraschino cherry. Thanks for sharing!

    Made these last night for dessert and everyone loved them. They were easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand. Made exactly as written other then I added chopped peanuts as that is what I had on hand.

    Holy wow. Bananas Foster in the peel. Delicious. These are so good. We put whiskey in one of them, but I would recommend lighting it if you do that - it was pretty stout. I wrapped these in foil as well and the resulting sauce is *great*. We all licked the peels before we threw them out. Great recipe and use of a warm grill! Thank you!
