Grilled Bananas

Oh yes, people...grilled bananas. We enjoyed a cookout with our friends the Millers last night, and Bobbie introduced us to these. I'm not normally a huge banana-lover, but these take delicious to another level! Jer and I grilled up some more tonight just because they were that good.

1 banana for each person
brown sugar
splash of rum (optional: I didn't have any when making mine tonight, so we did without and weren't disappointed at all.)
Place each peeled banana on a piece of foil. Cut a slit down the length of the banana. Place several dabs of butter in the slit and then sprinkle it brown sugar. Make sure you get some inside. If using rum, give the banana a good splash. The alcohol cooks out, so don't worry about the children. :) Make a foil pocket around the banana and cook on the grill for about seven minutes. When the butter and sugar are melted, you're ready. We served ours with vanilla ice cream.
