Grilled Bananas Foster
I worked at a Bed and Breakfast a few years back and Bananas Foster was a dessert that they often served with dinner. This wonderful version can be prepared on your outdoor grill. Once it is grilled, just add ice cream and you have a heavenly dessert without heating up your kitchen. — Kathleen Hedger, Fairview Hts, Illinois
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar

- 2 tablespoons rum or unsweetened apple juice

- In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter and rum. Cut bananas into 1-in. slices; place each banana on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. x 12 in.). Top with brown sugar mixture. Fold foil around banana mixture; seal packets tightly.
- Grill, covered, over medium heat for 7-9 minutes or until bananas are tender. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Serve with ice cream.
