To the people planning to make this, please quadruple this recipe. I was raised eating tostones for as long as I can remember, and it's usually a side to rice and meat; so I thought, I don't know what the big deal is. But I guess the simple matter of adding the fixings and condiments just takes it to a different level. Loved it!

Different but very good. Altough I am from Puerto Rico, I've never had a plantain sandwish. Will try it next time with some thinly sliced pork al ajillo or pork with mojito!

I have never eaten a plaintain before and I thought these were great! My boyfriend has had a plantain fried alone before and loved it, so when he saw what I was doing to it he wanted me to stop, but once it was all together and he tasted it, he loved it!

I saw this on tv but forgot about it till I saw it here. I decided to try this out on my dh and I am so glad that I did. The taste of this sandwich is phenomenal. My plantain was a bit ripe so we ended up with open face sandwiches but it still worked well. I also used deli honey turkey slices and swiss cheese sandwich slices. We will definitely make these again. I'm thinking that a rice with black beans would be a good side dish.
