We didn’t think it was possible to improve on the banana split, but this recipe does just that. This is a simple twist on the tradition banana split that involves sautéing the bananas in butter for a few minutes before topping them with ice cream and other goodies. Judging by how good ice cream is on warm apple crisp, we think this one is a winner too.
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 4 bananas, peeled and halved lengthwise
- Ice cream (your choice)
- Warm hot fudge sauce
- Whipped cream
- Other toppings as desired
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add bananas and sauté for 1 minute on each side, just until golden. Transfer bananas to 4 shallow dessert bowls and top with ice cream, warm hot fudge sauce, whipped cream and other toppings as desired.
