Warm and gooey, grilled bananas stuffed with marshmallows, chocolate, and graham cracker crumbs. A campfire treat brought to your grill.
After five years of marriage Brett and I finally have a real grill. We ditched the George Foreman indoor/outdoor grill (plug-in style) that was given to us as a wedding present five years ago. It carried us through our first one-bedroom apartment together, our tiny basement apartment, through two years of our first home, and some decent meals for us. For the space we’ve had, it served us well but it was well over time for an upgrade.
We live in a town home where our outdoor space is still limited, so we needed a grill that would fit our small balcony. (Since we don’t have a yard.)
See, the balcony is the yard.
So we turned to Lowe’s to help us find the perfect grill for our outdoor space. This Weber Spirit 2 Burner Propane Gas Grill is what we went with and so far we love it! It fits perfectly in that little corner of our balcony and we’ve been grilling non-stop since we got it. Meat is so much more tender, cooked more evenly, the char-grilled marks are deeper, crisper. We can’t get enough grilled veggies and grilled fruit is a dream. I know it’s boosted Brett’s score on his masculinity scale just a little. Real men have real grills. Or something like that. While he’s been busy grilling meat, I’ve been grilling dessert!
One of the first things I grilled (yes, all by myself!) were these Grilled Banana S’more Boats!
Banana boats are a thing of my youth. We made them every summer at girls camp and camping trips with my family. I’d forgotten all about them until some friends had us over to make s’mores in their back yard fire pit a few weeks ago. My friend Linley also made some banana boats for us. How could I have forgotten about them?
We don’t have a fire pit in our non-existant yard, and I didn’t want to wait for the next campout, so I threw these babies on the grill.
- 2 large bananas
- mini marshmallows
- chocolate chips
- 2 graham crackers, crumbled into crumbs
- tin foil
- Heat your grill to medium heat.
- Place peeled bananas on a square sheet of foil. Slice banana down the middle, length-wise.
- Sprinkle marshmallows and chocolate chips down the middle of the banana.
- Press sides of the banana together as you fold the foil up to meet in the middle. Tuck ends of the foil in and fold the top of the foil down to create seal, leaving some room above the bananas (you don't want the top of the foil to touch the top of the banana and the fillings or the marshmallows will stick to the foil when you open it.
- Place on the grill, cover, and cook for 5-7 minutes or until marshmallows and chocolate are almost completely melted and the banana is soft and a warmer yellow color.
- Unwrap the top of the foil and sprinkle bananas with graham cracker crumbs. Enjoy!
- **the foil will be hot so let it cool briefly before opening, or use an oven mit or towel to help open it. we just eat it right out of the foil, on a plate or in a bowl.
