Plantain (Platano) Baked Eggs Breakfast

Growing up we ate plantains like they were going out of style, as to be expected from a Dominican family! They were pretty much always on the table and never seemed to last very long at all. Now that I have a family of my own I make sure to still prepare foods that I grew up eating, tradition, after all is a tasty and beautiful thing! That being said, there are also just times when I feel the need to bring together two things that I enjoy and create a new love.

Eggs for breakfast are generally my first choice. I think they are the ideal breakfast, quick to prepare and full of protein to help you get a great start to your day. Lately, I have really been enjoying baked egg dishes. It is such a fun and easy way to make breakfast for the entire family all at once without having to cook individual eggs for everyone. And as far as joining two loves that is how this Plantain baked eggs dish came to be.

You are going to want to start with a very ripe plantain. The riper it is the sweeter it will be. A very ripe plantain will be yellow with lots of black spots.

Cook onions, plantain, and red peppers and add to your prepared baking dish.

Mix eggs, salt, cheese and parsley and pour over the plantain mixture in the baking dish. Now it is ready to bake.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25-30 minutes.
Note: Cooking times may vary depending on size, shape and type of baking dish. Start checking at 22 minutes and check to make sure center is firm and set.

Ready to serve!
