I'm so excited about this post! Plantains are a tradition in my family. My Dad is from Jamaica, and fried plantains are a Jamaican staple. Though admittedly with dinner. I love the fresh take as a breakfast item. Thanks!
Yes, it's much more common to eat them for dinner. But, it also somehow seems right to start the day out with them - starting the day out right, right? :)

I love fried plantains with a squeeze of lime juice and topped with an egg over easy.

Cook them in coconut oil and sprinkle with sea salt for a delicious twist.

I love these. They're very good with drinks, hot with a sprinkle of crunchy sea salt. Mildly sweet/salty - really tasty. Also - pretty odd, discovered by accident - try them with a dab of sour cream/creme fraiche and a little caviar (need not be best quality.) Kind of unsettling, but delicious.

I'm more of a tostones gal than a maduros (which is what these are). I think it's because of the garlic sauce. Any possibility of an article on tostones?
I'm a tostones fan too! And since I don't mind eating garlic for breakfast, perhaps I just shall...

I usually make these along side some feta cheese scrambled eggs. i like their sweetness paired with the saltiness of the omelette. :) I also love them when their are green and you have to press them and refry with a little bit of salt. Those are great as a part of lunch when you want something a little savory :) We are Greek, however my aunt married a Puerto Rican man and we were exposed to this cuisine early on :) As a result, sometimes some of the flavors blend :)

I fry mine up in coconut oil and they are absolutely delicious. Just a suggestion if you don't want to use butter.
