Happy Monday! I have a fun little post for you this today that involves a Cuban meal the hubby and I cooked up last week! Last week we were shopping at a different grocery store than we normally do and we found some plaintains! Hubby snatched them up and we brought them home.

They the frittatas, not the kiddoes are quick and easy to make and simply involve whisking eggs along with leftover plantains, chives and spring onion before baking them. The kids also have a lot of fun throwing in whatever leftovers they find in the fridge. For a grown-up version, add in some chilli sauce. They are great for breakfast, brunch, lunchboxes and any grab and go moments. These are definitely going to be another of my Sierra Leonean sides along with my roast okra and sweet potato salad on Christmas day. Especially as I will prepare them in advance and reheat as needed to make life much easier. Step 2.

Baked Sweet Plantains is a fun dish that disappears quickly in my household. It is a fun snack when you have several mouths to feed and especially if they are children. It is an effortless snack or side dish if you want to call it that, which can be prepared in many ways.
I love plantains and this appetizer is one of my favorites. It is very easy to make and it is absolutely delicious. The sweetness of the ripe plantains is the perfect foil for smoked bacon and the fresh flavor of chimichurri.
