Expert Tips

You can use yucca instead of plantains but be sure to boil 25 minutes before frying.

When it comes to cooking a Thanksgiving turkey, the stuffing is the most important part for many. My favorite stuffing is mofongo that you can make with plantain, yucca or breadfruit. So give tradition a Caribbean kick this Thanksgiving!

You can also add pieces of chicharron or pieces of smoked ham.

Directions

  • 1 In a pan, stirfry the bacon in oil until crunchy, stirring it constantly to prevent over burning. Remove from heat and cook the onions in the same oil.
  • 2 Peel the plantains and them into one-inch pieces. Fry until soft on all sides. Mash them with the garlic and place them in a bowl. Season and mix with the onions and bacon until unifom, add peppers and stuff turkey.
  • 3 If you choose to serve as a side, keep warm until ready to serve. The onions and oil will keep it moist and prevent it from over drying.
