DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil for frying to 375 degrees.
  • While the oil is heating up, peel the green plantains and then cut them into 3/4 inch slices.
  • Fry the slices in the hot oil for 3 minutes. They should be a light golden color and semi-soft.
  • Remove the plantain slices with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  • Tip: Maintain the oil’s temperature.
  • When the plantain slices are cool enough to handle (about 1 minute), smash them into flat rounds.
  • Fry the rounds in the hot oil for 3 minutes. They will turn crisp and golden brown.
  • Remove the slices with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  • In a mortar and pestle, mash together the bacon, garlic, peppers, onion and olive oil a little at a time until everything is incorporated.
  • Add the broth. If the stuffing is not moist enough, add more broth until you get the consistency you prefer.
  • Serve the stuffing as it is or stuff your turkey and follow cooking instructions on the turkey package.
