Recipe-Hot And Steamy Banana Boats
First a little side note. You can do this on the grill or you can do this in the oven. I will put info for both. Also I will put in info for 1 Banana Boat. You can adjust as needed for how ever many you want to make. You might also make note, that you can substitute ingredients for your taste.
1/2 Candy bar. Your choice of flavors
Apprx 20 Mini marshmallows
1 heaping table spoon peanut butter - if allergic or don't like, you can omit this ingredient or substitute it.
1 piece of tin foil. Sized large enough to wrap the banana and stuffing and still have a pocket of air surrounding the banana and ingredients.
* Start BBQ/Grill or oven. If using oven, preheat to 400 degrees.
1. Using a pairing knife or sharp knife, make a slice the length of the banana, leaving about 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch on each end.
2. Using a small spoon, spread the slit open with out pealing the banana.
3. Using the same spoon. You can scoop out a trough in the banana to place the next ingredients. Save the scoopings to place back on top.
4. Now layer you ingredients into the trough you just scooped out. Making sure to break up the candy bar and not place large clumps of ingredients into a single spot. Try to keep it leveled out.
6. Carefully place the scoopings of the banana across the top.
7. Now lay the tin foil out on a flat surface. Set the stuffed banana on the foil and wrap the banana in the foil. When wrapping the banana, you want to create a seal with the foil, and over the banana you want a pocket of air. So make sure when you seal the top, that you pull up a bit to create that pocket of air. This is what helps steam the banana.
8. Place on preheated BBQ/Grill or oven. Let cook for about 10 minutes.
9. Carefully remove from BBQ/Grill or oven and place on plate.
Let cool for a few minutes. To serve, you can just place on plate and hand out, or after opening the foil. Place a scoop of your favorite ice cream or frozen yogurt on the plate next to the banana. I would recommend leaving the banana in the foil, or if you want to loose the foil, putting the banana in a bowl. It can become a bit messy otherwise.
* Remember you can substitute the ingredients for what you are in the mood for. It's a steamed banana boat for all occasions. You only limit, is your imagination and palate tastes. Experiment and Enjoy
