A sweet and salty dish your whole family will enjoy. Serve with some rice.

Supplies

  • 4 Sweet plantains ,large
  • 1 Pounds Picadillo(see my guide)
  • 4 Eggs,scrambled
  • Cheddar cheese,shredded
  • Canola oil for frying
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    The ingredients, try to choose the darkest plantains for is dish. They are much sweeter

    Step 2

    First things first, take a large frying pan and add enough oil to fry the sweet plantains. Set it to medium heat.

    Step 3

    Remove the ends of the sweet plantains and discard them

    Step 4

    Take a sharp knife and slice it down the middle, than proceed to gently peel the skin off

    Step 5

    Cut the plantain vertically into about 4 slices each. Not too thin not too thick.😊

    Step 6

    See me do it😁

    Step 7

    Now let's get frying. Take your plantain slices and brown them on each side

    Step 8

    Yum nice and browned😃

    Step 9

    Line a plate with paper towel and When the plantains are done frying place them on the plate to remove the excess oil off the plantains

    Step 10

    Pat the tops too😉 set them aside

    Step 11

    If frying the plantain is not an option, this recipe can also be made removing the skin from the plantains and boiling them with a bit of salt until fork tender.

    Step 12

    When cooked remove and mash, add a bit of butter and some water until creamy. Use in place of the fried plantains.☺

    Step 13

    Now take any baking dish that is about 8x8

    Step 14

    Take the fried sweet plantain

    Step 15

    And start layering the plantains. I managed to fit 6 slices😊

    Step 16

    After the plantains the second layer is the picadillo. If you don't know how to make it I have a guide that will show you.😊

    Step 17

    Yum

    Step 18

    Now another layer of plantains

    Step 19

    More picadillo ☺️if you want you can also add a layer of cheese after the picadillo.

    Step 20

    This is the last layer of plantains

    Step 21

    It is now time to take the eggs and give them a whirl. I used 4 eggs, if this seems too much use three no biggy. I personally love the flavor it gives the pastelon.😁

    Step 22

    Add a bit of salt

    Step 23

    Now pour the eggs evenly over the plantains

    Step 24

    And last but not least the cheese. Be generous😊 grate your own cheese if possible it melts so much better. Mine didn't 😑

    Step 25

    Put the dish in a preheated 350 degrees oven for 30 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the egg is cooked.

    Step 26

    Yum, my dish is ready.😊 Let it cool a bit. Slice and serve warm.

    Step 27

    Enjoy.
