This year, I don’t have very much time to spend in the kitchen cooking an elaborate Thanksgiving spread. That’s why, with a lot of research, I’ve developed recipes for a feast that will take half the time and effort than previous years. One of those dishes that will make its way to my holiday table is this sweet and savory plantain stuffing. It has the perfect balance of flavors that will complete and enhance all the elements of a Thanskgiving meal. It not only calls for few ingredients but two of those ingredients are plantains and bacon. Need I say more? MORE + LESS -
