Fried plantains

By • June 13, 2014 • 2 Comments

Author Notes: Fried plantains are typically eaten as a side dish for supper in many Latin American countries, but I think they make for a fantastic breakfast!fiveandspice

Serves 1

  • 1 completely ripe plantain (its skin should be pretty much black)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  1. Peel the plantain and cut it on an angle into 1/2-inch thick slices.
  2. In a large frying pan, heat the butter over medium-high heat until it foams. Add the plantain slices in a single layer and cook until the bottom side is turning a deep golden brown -- several minutes -- then flip and cook the second side.
  3. Transfer the plantain pieces to a plate. Serve accompanied by bacon, or sour cream, and/or drizzled with maple syrup, if you desire.
