Bet you didn’t know irons were for cooking! …Well they’re not, but we did find some delicious meals that you could make with the humble iron. Serve this to your friends and you will blow their little minds. Check out the simple recipes below!

1. Grilled Banana, Maple & Pecan 

This is a gooey, soul-warming dessert that really couldn’t be easier to make.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripened bananas
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate

Method:

  1. Cut off the longer tip of the bananas, then slice in half lengthways
  2. Lay aluminum foil out and lay the bananas on top with the inside facing upwards. Fold the aluminum foil over the bananas so that they’re completely covered
  3. On high heat, take your iron and lay on top of the foil for about 5-7 minutes, moving it occasionally so that the heat is evenly dispersed across bananas inside. You will hear it start bubbling, this means the bananas are caramelizing
  4. Carefully peel the foil open and transfer the bananas to a plate (careful of the moisture that will have developed inside)
  5. On the plate, drizzle desired amount of maple syrup on top bananas, followed by roasted pecans and dark chocolate
  6. Enjoy!

  2. Flip the bread over (so buttered side is facing the foil)
  3. Put a slice of cheese, then ham, topped with shredded cheese and top with other slice of bread (with buttered facing upwards)
  4. Wrap up bread in foil so that it’s completely covered
  5. On high heat, place the iron on top and slightly press down for 2.5 minutes
  6. Flip it over and repeat on the other side
  7. Open the foil and enjoy!
