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