When you’re craving a diner-style breakfast, with a twist, look no further than this simple hash with crisp and golden sweet plantains and perfectly tender onions and peppers. It’s speedy, satisfying, and the answer to unique side dish when you’re hosting brunch.
A pan-fried combination of chopped sweet plantains, bell pepper, and onion, this dish offers a sweetness, savory taste creates the perfect balance to any southern-styled breakfast of over-medium eggs, smoked sausage and buttery grits. Here's how I like to make it.
2 ripe plantains
1/4 large red bell pepper
1/4 yellow bell pepper
1/4 green bell pepper
1/4 small red onion
1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
1 pinch of garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 tsp peppercorn melody (or black pepper substitute)
Peel, score and dice plantains into small pieces (approximately 1/4 inch)
Place diced plantains into mixing bowl
Add 1/4 tsp sea salt into mixing bowl and mix well
Dice up your peppers and onions and combine well into 1 mixing bowl
Stove Top Action
In a large cast iron skillet, fry plantains for approximately 7 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from oil and place on a wire rack set over a drip pan to allow oil to drip into a drip pan.
Dice up your peppers and onions and sauté on medium heat.
Allow to sauté for 2 minutes, then add 1 pinch garlic powder, 1/4 tsp paprika, 1 pinch of sea salt, and 1/2 tsp peppercorn melody.
Stir well continuously for 2 additional minutes.
Where the Magic Happens
Add fried plantain into mixture and stir well for 1-1/2 minutes.
Remove from pan
Serve with love.
