Grilled Bananas Foster

Notes

Using firmer bananas will help ensure that they won't fall apart when cooked on the grill. If you only have ripe bananas, grill them over a piece of tin foil to prevent them from falling through the grill grates. If you don't have a gas-burning stove, use a stick flame to ignite the rum. Grilling the bananas is an optional (though suggested) step; if you skip it, add the bananas to the butter and sugar mixture once the sugar has dissolved, and cook for a couple minutes or until the bananas have softened slightly before proceeding with the recipe.

Grilled Bananas Foster Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 2 firm bananas, peeled, cut lengthwise, then halved
  2. 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  3. 1/3 cup brown sugar
  4. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  5. Pinch nutmeg
  6. Pinch salt
  7. 1/3 cup dark rum
  8. 1 pint vanilla ice cream

Directions

  1. To grill bananas: Preheat grill or cast iron grill pan to medium-high. Brush melted butter over banana pieces. Place bananas on grill. Do not move them, and sear for 4-6 minutes, or until light brown grill marks form. Flip over and repeat. Use a spatula to carefully remove bananas from the grill and set aside.
  2. To make sauce: In a large sauté pan, combine brown sugar, spices, salt, and remaining melted butter. Over low flame, stir constantly until sugar dissolves. Add rum, and if sauce is hot enough, it will flame on its own. Otherwise, tilt pan away from you until it catches. Continue cooking until flame dies out. Add bananas, and cook 1-2 minutes or until heated through.
  3. To serve: Scoop ice cream onto plates or bowl. Lay 2 pieces of banana per plate. Drizzle with rum sauce. Serve immediately.
