Bananas And Brown Sugar En Papillote

Bananas And Brown Sugar En Papillote

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 4 pieces parchment paper
  • 4 bananas, each cut in half the long way and then in half the short way
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 orange, zested and juiced
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 4 teaspoons chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, grated


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Fold the sheets of parchment in half and cut out a half heart shape along the crease, creating a heart shape when unfolded. Unfold the hearts and stuff them each with 4 pieces of banana. Sprinkle with lemon and orange juice and zest. Top each with 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 teaspoon butter, 1 teaspoon chopped walnuts and a sprinkle of grated ginger. Fold the edges back together, creating a half-heart-shaped pouch, and seal the edge by crimping and rolling it over itself. Place papillote on sheet pan and bake for 3 to 4 minutes until well heated through. To serve, open packet by slicing or cutting open with scissors at the table for a beautiful presentation.
