Thursday Recipe - Banana Boats

This is another fun campfire recipe. Not my favorite, but it's traditional to make these around the campfire. They're like s'mores, except without the graham crackers and with bananas.

Banana Boats

Ripe bananas, just the yellow ones, not the real squishy ones
mini marshmallows
chocolate chips
peanut butter

Take a nice banana. Split it through the skin, but don't peel it. Stuff the banana with peanut butter, marshmallows, and chocolate chips. Push the banana back together, pulling the skin as closed as you can. Wrap the banana in aluminum foil.

Now for the fun part - cooking it.
Fire - put the foil-wrapped banana in the fire for two or three minutes, just long enough to warm up the banana and melt the marshmallows and chocolate. Remove it from the fire, let it cool just for a minute, then eat it right out of the skin.

Grill - cook the banana on the grill for two or three minutes, just enough to warm it up and turn it into a gooey mess. Eat it from the skin after it cools just a little. Add ice cream if you like.

Oven - bake at 350° for about five to ten minutes, just long enough to get the banana hot through.

Enjoy!
