Description

Grilled Banana Boats, also known as Campfire Banana Splits, are a fun dessert for our little kids or us big kids. This recipe was taught to me while on an adult camping trip at the lake. You can prep them at home, but likely you will have all of the ingredients right there at your campsite. Or make them easily on the grill from the comfort of your own home.

Grilled Banana Boats are loved by kids, adults and beyond. They are easy to make, take no time at all, and are healthier than most desserts.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 whole bananas, unpeeled
  • 8 tbsp chocolate chips
  • 8 tbsp mini marshmallows
  • 6 graham crackers, crushed loosely
  • Caramel sauce for topping (optional)

Instructions

  1. Take each unpeeled banana and cut it lengthwise, but not all the way through, starting at the stem end. Only cut 3/4 the way through the banana to keep it intact when grilling. Slightly open the pocket that you just made in the banana. This is similar to how you would cut a baked potato after cooking.
  2. Prepare 4 squares of aluminum foil. Place one banana on top of each piece of foil. Dividing the filling up evenly, fill each banana with equal amounts of chocolate chips, marshmallows, and graham cracker pieces. Wrap each stuffed banana up tightly in foil.
  3. Place the bananas over medium-low heat on the grill or campfire. Cook about 4 minutes until the chocolate is melted.
  4. Remove from the grill and carefully unwrap each banana. Serve with additional caramel sauce if desired.

Grilled Vegetable Salad with Chunky Pesto and Burrata

No one likes to feel left out. Especially at an event where there will be lots of eating involved. Vegetarians should always feel like they have something to eat when they go out to a BBQ. Commonly, non-meat eaters will have nothing to eat but coleslaw or a hot dog bun. Even if it’s extra, I will always have a delicious meatless dish on my BBQ spread. You never know when your neighbor is going to bring their new partner, who does not eat meat. Plus, these dishes are so delicious, no one is missing the meat. There are plenty of other meat options on the table to go around. This Grilled Vegetable Salad has a tangy, chunky pesto dressing and is topped with creamy burrata that begins melting as it hits the hot, grilled vegetables.

Grilled Chilli Chicken Wings
Grilled Chilli Chicken Wings

Buffalo wings are so passé, especially during the summer months. Breaded, fried wings are a little too much for a hot summer day. Lately, the grill is the way I go when making wings. Using diced green chilies from the pantry is one of my favorite ways to impart a spicy, south-of-the-border flavor to my dishes. My Grilled Green Chile Chicken Wings are spicy, flavorful, and taste like the grill. I spice up the chilies from a can with tons of lime juice, spices, and honey. Marinate your trimmed chicken wings in this delightful, saucy mix before grilling over a screaming-hot grill. When done, I top the wings with fresh cilantro and jalapeno for brightness and freshness. With such few ingredients, there is so much flavor going on!
