    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To peel plantains, cut off ends then cut in the middle or into thirds if very large. Then make a slice through lengthwise, from cut end, to cut end. Make another slice a quarter of the way around and then peel off that piece. I often make 3 -4 cuts equidistant around then peel them off with the side of the knife. They should just pop off.
    2. 2
      Boil the plantains until tender (like potatoes). Drain and reserve the broth. Mash plantains, adding reserved water broth plus 1 T. butter or oil until they look like mashed potatoes. Add salt.
    3. 3
      In meantime while boiling plantains, fry the bacon and drain on paper towels. With 1 T. of oil left over or any other you have, fry the onion until limp and add crumbled up bacon if desired.
    4. 4
      Transfer mangu to platter and top with onions.
