“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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
