Grilled Banana

Grilled banana is a dessert item prepared by grilling banana halves on hot grill over direct and medium heat, with the natural sweetness of bananas augmented upon the grilling process. Using other ingredients like honey, cinnamon, butter, lemon juice, and sugar over banana halves during the preparation of grilled bananas would help in making them more scrumptious. The brown sugar and butter mix brushed over cut side of banana halves gets caramelized upon grilling, which helps in attaining immensely flavored grilled bananas.


Process of Grilling Bananas

The process of grilling bananas is quite simple which involves drizzling honey and sprinkling cinnamon sugar mixture over unpeeled banana halves and then grilling them, with cut side placed downwards for a couple of minutes on preheated charcoal or gas grill until black. The banana halves are then flipped and grilled again for a few minutes until soft before being served.
