Expert Tips

Make sure to complete all your prepping before beginning to fry. The plantains will cook quickly.

I grew up on the sweet goodness of platanitos fritos. They make any meal feel like a little slice of my Cuban family. But wrapping plantains in bacon just takes the traditional side dish to a whole new level! Whether for a party or nice dinner date, make bacon wrapped plantains! Perfect for a bite-sized appetizer, this recipe will sure be a hit for adults and kids alike.

Directions

  • 1 Peel and cut plantains in a bias, as if you were making platanitos fritos.
  • 2 Coat a medium saucepan with roughly one inch of oil. Heat oil on medium heat.
  • 3 Using a slice of bacon, completely wrap a piece of plantain. Make sure to overlap the bacon slightly, so to keep the wrap together while cooking. Place a toothpick through the bacon wrapping and plantain to ensure it stays together while frying.
  • 4 Fry the bacon-wrapped plantains evenly on all sides until browned.
  • 5 Remove from heat and allow cooling slightly before serving.
