ly when you want something that will hold you up well into dinner time. The recipe is one I adapted from my husband when he first bought me something similar from a Dominican restaurant. I don't know exactly how they made it but I have been happily making and enjoying it for a very long time in my own way. The eggs can be enjoyed in any way you like, you can even mix it in with the plantains and cheese. They are oh so good!

*Salt & Pepper
*Your favorite variety of Cabot Cheeses
*Nellie's Free Range Eggs
*Sausage, salami or bacon
- Peel the plantains.
- Put in a few cut up pieces of yellow onions.
- Pour water covering the plantains halfway.
- Salt & pepper for taste.
- Once cooked, mash and add in butter, milk/cream.
- Fry the egg to your liking.
- Red onions are cut thin, lightly sauteed and soaked in vinegar before being served.
I put the plantains in my pressure cooker for 10 minutes. Mash with a potato masher, it can be enjoyed as is without any additives but best enjoyed right away if you plan to add no milk/cream, butter or olive oil.
Serve plantains, eggs, cheese and red onions right away.
For the perfect bite get a little bit of everything in and enjoy a hearty meal that will keep you happy, and full for a long time. I know I've never tried anything like this before I was introduced to it many years ago, but have become a huge fan of it. The plantains provide more nutrients than most bread, and if you keep the additives like the oil for frying your eggs to a minimum, it can also be considered a hearty and healthy meal. The Nellie's Free-Range Eggs and Cabot Cheeses are good in just about every meal, even on their own, and great for omelets. For the mashed plantains, eggs and cheese are what makes the meal into a perfect brunch.
