New Orleans Baked Bananas With Orange Sauce
|Grated orange rind||1 Tablespoon|
|Fresh orange juice||1 Tablespoon|
|Vanilla extract||1 Teaspoon|
|Unsalted butter||1 Teaspoon, cut into 4 pieces|
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Cut 4 pieces of foil, each 4 x 6 inches.
Peel the bananas, cut them in half lengthwise, and place each half on a foil rectangle.
In a small bowl, mix the orange rind, honey, orange juice, and vanilla extract, and spoon over the banana halves.
Top each half with a piece of butter.
Fold over the foil once and crimp the ends to seal.
Place on a baking sheet and bake for 5 to 8 minutes; if the bananas are really ripe, they will cook in about 5 minutes.
