Grilled Cinnamon-Sugar Bananas with Vanilla Ice Cream & Bourbon

Grilled bananas?  With ice cream? A little bourbon? Perfection!

Serves 6-8      

Vegetable oil for the grill

4 bananas, ripe but not overly soft

1 Tbs. granulated sugar

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 pint best-quality vanilla ice cream

1/2 to 3/4 cup toasted pecan pieces

2 Tbs. best-quality bourbon, such as Maker’s Mark or Woodford Reserve

Prepare a medium charcoal or gas grill fire. Brush the grill grate clean.

Directions:

Slice the bananas, still in their skin, in half lengthwise and then crosswise so that each banana yields four pieces. In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon. Lightly sprinkle the cut sides of the bananas with some of the cinnamon sugar (you may not need it all). Let sit 5 minutes so the sugar can start to dissolve.

Put the bananas cut side down on the grate and cover the grill. Grill until marks appear, 2 to 3 minutes. Using tongs, flip the bananas, cover the grill, and cook until the skin starts to pull away from the banana, about 5 minutes more. Remove from the grill and let cool for 2 to 3 minutes. Peel and serve the bananas on top of vanilla ice cream, sprinkled with the pecan pieces and drizzled with bourbon.
