Savoury Plantain Pie

What to use

Four large ripe plantains

1 cup milk

1 egg

3 cups grated cheddar cheese

pinch of salt

1 tsp coarse ground black pepper

1/4 cup panko bread crumbs

What to do

Cut each plantain in half.  Place plantains in large pot and boil until soft.  Peel and slice plantains diagonally. Each slice should be about 1/2 inch thick. Beat egg and add to milk. Stir in pinch of salt and black pepper. In a greased shallow baking dish, alternate layers of plantain and cheese starting with a layer of plantain.  Pour milk mixture over layers and top with a layer of panko bread crumbs.  Bake at 350 to375 degree for 45 minutes or until golden brown.


I absolutely love when people try my recipes and make them their own.  My sister did her take on this by using a mixture plantains and sweet potato (which she also boiled first).  She topped her pie with crushed Post cereal.  She swears it’s better than my rendition! lol

Here’s the proof:-
