Plantain, Egg and Bacon Frittata

Plantain, Egg and Bacon Frittata

A few months ago I made these plantain and egg cups for children day as a snack to send your little one to school with. It was very well received and I was have made it a few times since then. I decided to make a “grown up” version for breakfast last weekend and it got rave reviews at home and instagram people(Are you following me on instagram—>)  hounded me with requests for the recipe. So here we are! To make the frittata I fried some plantains, cooked some bacon and whisked some eggs with onions, peppers and fresh herbs. the mixture of the plantains and eggs with the herbs made for a delicious breakfast for my friend(I don’t eat eggs). Try the recipe and let me know what you think.

    • I was just about to ask this question. Lohi, please answer today, as I’m planning a Power Puff Breakfast with my girls this Saturday 🙂

      Pretty please and cookie dough.

      • So sorry I thought I answered this already. Yes you can make them on the stove top. Just add everything and cover the frying pan with its cover and set to low-medium heat. vook for 15mins or until egg is set.

    Lohita,fabulous recipe,I made this tonight,for Dinner & breakfast & it was so yummy,Inearly add 3/4.Your LC blog is giving me sleepless nights.Keep up the great work.You are an inspiration.God bless you.

  6. Recently made this and enjoyed it. I’d never eaten plantains before and found they brought a sweetness to the frittata that contrasted nicely with the curry powder, salt, and black pepper. I did not use a seasoning cube because they’re full of salt and MSG. Instead I added 1/2 t. dried oregano and 1/4 t. dried thyme — something else for the plantains to play off of, which they did well!
