Grilled Bananas Foster

Grilled Bananas Foster

This classic New Orleans dessert originated at Brennan’s Restaurant in Louisiana back in the 1950s. While its roots are usually a flambé of bananas cooked with rum, liqueur, sugar and cinnamon served with Vanilla ice cream, its flavors are easily recreated in the twist for the grill. Grilled Bananas Foster is a different preparation with the same end result; banana Nirvana.

My recipe is designed for the grill, but works equally well in a campfire by simply wrapping all of the ingredients in aluminum foil and letting them in some smoldering embers.  This effortless treat is sure to please!

Grilled Bananas Foster


  • 4 bananas
  • 6 Tbsp. butter
  • ½ cup rum
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. sweetened condensed milk


  1. Combine butter, rum and brown sugar in small saucepan and melt together until silky.
  2. Slice bananas in half lengthwise. Keep in peel.
  3. Place bananas, peel sized down, over indirect heat in medium high grill (approximately 300° in direct zone).
  4. Grill bananas basting frequently with rum mixture.
  5. Remove from heat with bananas become soft.
  6. Carefully remove bananas from peels, drizzle with remaining rum mixture and sweetened condensed milk. Serve while hot.
