Plantains Wrapped in Bacon

Plantains Wrapped in Bacon


  • 4 Ripe plantains
  • 1 Lb of bacon
  • Tooth picks


01Preheat the oven to 350 F.

02Make sure you select ripe plantains for this recipe.  Plantains are ripe when their skins are mostly black and they feel soft.  When they are ripe and black, they are sweet.  When they are green or yellow, they are hard and very starchy.  You don’t want starchy.  😉

03Peel the plantains and cut them into 1 inch thick chunks. Cut the bacon slices in half.  Wrap each chunk of plantain with a piece of bacon and secure the bacon with a toothpick.

04Place the plantain pieces on a baking sheet and roast in a preheated oven for 40 minutes.  The bacon should be crisp and the plantain soft and golden.
