I had bananas foster for the first time about a month ago at a catered event for my husband's work. It was amazing, and I knew as soon as I tasted it that it would transfer nicely to the crockpot.
After some googling, and speaking to friends, I learned that a lot of times this dish is set on fire before it is served. I did not do this. I have no interest in testing out our insurance policy and we don't live on a cruise ship.
--3 nasty squishy bananas (why oh why can we not ever seem to eat them quickly enough?)
--1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter
--1 t vanilla
--1/3 cup brown sugar
--1/4 cup brandy (gluten free)
I used my mini crockpot for this.
--smash up your bananas in a ziplock
--squeeze into crockpot
--add butter and the rest of the stuff
cook on low for 3-4 hours or high for 1-2.
Stir and enjoy over your favorite vanilla ice cream.
I did not give this to the kids. It tasted alcohol-y, but not overbearing in the slightest. I adored it and stirred it into my oatmeal the next morning. Adam had seconds.
This is a good one!
