  • For Butter Rum Sauce:
  • Butter: 6 tbsp
  • Light brown sugar, packed: 1/4 cup
  • Ground Cinnamon: 1/2 tsp
  • Ground nutmeg: 1/4 tsp
  • Light rum: 3 tbsp
  • Half and half: 3 tbsp
  • Bananas, firm and ripe: 4
  • Butter, melted: 2 tbsp
  • Vanilla ice cream: for serving

  1. To make the Butter Rum sauce, heat the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat until melted. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture comes to a simmer, about 3 minutes. Stir in the rum and half and half and cook, stirring, until the mixture bubbles and thicken, about 3 minutes longer. Remove from the heat; keep warm.
  2. Cut each unpeeled banana crosswise in half, then in half lengthwise. Insert the grill plates in the open grill position. Turn the temperature on the lower plate of the grill to 430ºF and preheat the grill. Add the bananas, cut-side down and grill until grill marks form on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Flip and grill 1 minute longer until the bananas are heated through, but not too soft.
  3. Divide the bananas among 4 dessert dishes. Top with the ice cream and sauce. Serve warm.
