Thinking about grilled bananas take me back many years ago when I was in Girl Scouts. Our town had a building located next to our school called a “Girl Scout House”. It was all white and appeared to be small from the outside but once inside it seemed quite large to me. Downstairs it had a large kitchen and what I would call a conference room. This is where all the local organizations held their weekly or monthly meetings.
Upstairs was all one large room. I spent my kindergarten year and third grade year of school in this room. Now getting back to bananas. We held our Girl Scout meetings in this big room also. When our Girl Scout Troop wanted to camp out all night, it was here in this room not outside. The room had a huge fireplace on one of the walls. When we “camped out” our leaders would build a nice fire in the fireplace and we would “cook out”. Grilled bananas were always on our menu of grilling recipes.
There was a huge grate in this fireplace. We would fold thick aluminum foil like a boat around the bottom of our bananas. Then we would place the banana in the boat and split it down the middle lengthwise with a knife. In the split we would arrange pieces of Hershey’s chocolate bars. After heating these bananas on the grate in the fireplace, the chocolate bars would melt. Oh, How delicious!
Add bananas to your camping recipes or grilling recipes. You can stuff the split with other ingredients besides chocolate like miniature marshmallows, chunky peanut butter or chocolate chips. I do recommend always using some form of chocolate because bananas and chocolate are a perfect match.
Another camping recipe (not grilled) but a good banana dessert recipe is to cut large bananas in half through the center (not lengthwise); run a stick (like you would use for marshmallows) up through the center. After melting chocolate over hot coals dip the banana in the chocolate and then roll in crushed peanuts. This is also delicious and the kids love them. These can also be made ahead of time and refrigerated until the chocolate hardens for special snacks.
Another great recipe when cooking out, not exactly grilled bananas, but a very good dessert is grilled angel food cake.
Combine strawberries, bananas, cantaloupe, blueberries, kiwi, sugar and lime juice in medium bowl; blend well.
Slice angel food cake horizontally and place halves on hot grill.
When cake is toasted to a golden brown, cut in pieces and top with fruit salsa to serve.
Cut a lengthwise slit in bananas (Not all the way through to the bottom).
A stuff banana slits each with 1 tablespoon of marshmallows, chocolate chips and peanut butter.
Place each banana with stuffed side up in a piece of aluminum foil folded to resemble a boat.
Grill bananas uncovered over medium hot coals until chocolate melts.
NOTE: You can also place in oven or under broiler. 4 Servings.
Peel bananas; marinate in lemon juice 1 hour and drain.
Place bananas on hot grill or under hot broiler about 2 minutes until heated.
