Recipe by Julesong

This is one of my adopted recipes. I love plaintains! It looks like a dish my family and I would enjoy, so I hope to make it and edit it in the future.

I made this today. It reminds me of the flavor of Turkey stuffing, I would not make this again, but I will finish what I made.
