King Louie's Banana Boats: National Banana Day

Today is National Banana Day. I don't know about you, but I'm tired of banana bread. And, since the weather today is warm and beautiful, it's a perfect day to make this fun recipe for King Louie's Banana Boats from one of my 'Theme" Cookbooks: Cooking with Mickey and Friends by Pat Baird. You'll go Ape over these.

Since we barbecue all year round, I often make these on the grill, but you can just as easily follow the directions and make them in the toaster oven.

And, as Mickey reminds us, Bananas are a good source of potassium and carbohydrates. Use a good dark chocolate (chopped) or high quality dark chocolate chips, and you're adding antioxidants. Want to make S'mores Banana Boats? Add graham crackers mixed with melted butter to the chocolate chips and marshmallows. You'll love King Louie's Banana Boats. You'll want to make more than one!
