Plantains in Bacon
The combined flavours of sweet plantain and savoury bacon is delicious. Plantains are ripe when their skins begin to blacken and they feel soft.
4 ripe plantains.
12 slices streaky bacon.
- Peel the plantains and slice each into 6 chunks.
- Halve the bacon slices and wrap a piece around each chunk of plantain, securing with a cocktail stick.
- Stand each on its end in a baking dish and bake at 180C/gas 4 for about 40 mins. until the bacon is crispy and the plantain soft.
