Dr. Bosker's Boogie-Woogie Brown-Sugared Barbecued Bananas

 

Top grilled bananas with a sprinkle of brown sugar and a splash of orange liqueur for a simple and sophisticated dessert. Serve with a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream.

Yield: 6 servings

 

Ingredients:

•  6 unpeeled ripe bananas

•  6 tablespoons light brown sugar

•  6 tablespoons orange liqueur

•  Ice cream or whipped cream

 

Preparation:

1.  Cut a lengthwise slit in each banana, being careful not to cut all the way through; spread open slightly. Gently pack 1 tablespoon brown sugar inside each. Drizzle liqueur over brown sugar.

2.  Grill, without lid, over medium heat (300° to 350°) 4 minutes on each side. Top each grilled banana with a small scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. Serve immediately.
