Grilled Banana Pudding – Yes, I said grilled.

Now yes, I know, this sounds like an idea where I’ve gone bananas (hehe). But, I promise, it’s worth the try, and SUPER easy. Three ingredients, and man’s (or woman’s) best friend. No, we’re not using a dog to make this…it’s the grill. The epitome of Summer time. To me, there is nothing better than firing up the grill, sitting on the patio with an ice cold beer (yes, I enjoy a brilliant beer), and smelling your food on the grill as it cooks to perfection.

On to the recipe folks!

Let me preface this with I received this recipe verbally at a good friend’s birthday party – from her sister to be exact. However, I may have missed a few steps. So, without googling, I just attempted it on my own. Add or subtract as you see fit, and as with all the recipes I put up here…I encourage you to make it your own!

Grilled Banana Pudding

  • 4 or 5 bananas (depending on how many people there are – one per person)
  • 1 can EagleBrand Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 cup crushed Nilla Wafers

Directions

  1. After you have grilled your main meal’s goodies, place the bananas on the grill, turn it off, and close the grill. Go and eat your main course.
  2. Return to the grill and find warm bananas, slightly browned most likely. Here is where mine got iffy. I returned to coldish bananas. So, I cranked the grill on high, had the bananas on the top rack, and cooked on each side for 5 minutes until the peels were nice and dark.
  3. Remove the bananas from the grill onto a pan (because you just might be getting ready to make a mess like I did).
  4. While the bananas are lying down on their side, slit them from top to bottom to create an opening to eat out of. Pull the peel open a bit to expose the banana.
  5. Drizzle EagleBrand inside the banana peel. I sliced my banana a few times in the peel to get more of the goodness of the EagleBrand all over it! Yum! Heaven!
  6. Last, but certainly not least (I added this step), sprinkle crushed Nilla Wafers on top of the banana in the peel.
  7. Serve in the peel like a boat for a wonderful presentation, and enjoy!

Check out those grill marks on the bananas!  Gotta love grill marks on almost anything.  It’s the mark of perfection.  *smiles*

    1. Thanks, Rufus! (If that is your real name… ;) I wish I could take credit for it. I’m sure it’s some fancy thing my friend’s sister obtained off of the internet. But, it never hurts to make it your own little fancy thing. Let me know if your wife enjoys it.

  5. Cant wait to try this tonight. I was thinking that the bananas i bought the other day had too many spots on them for me to eat…and banana pudding was next on the agenda :) This is such a cool way and looks way easy. I love the warm bananas at Kabutos and this might just be my new favorite…we’ll see :)

    As a “I would love jennifer to perfect this for me” idea….fried plantains. I have had them many places but never can quite get them the way i want them at home :( I am sure you could Jennifer :)

    1. It did make for a nice presentation. However, the little girl that was over with her parents didn’t seem to fond of it. :) Let me know if you try this one out, Sunny.
