Pancetta, mushrooms, eggs, and butterflies. A great way to start the day. Protein and vegetable and fat. I'm in!
My lunch was a plantain experiment. I have made plantain pancakes and crackers in the past (check the tag cloud for the word "recipe" to see). I've read that the greener ones are not as sweet, so I bought one. It was a bear to peel as opposed to the riper and darker ones, but one plantain and 2 eggs along with salt and pepper fit in the Magic Bullet large cup just fine once I got it down to where I could cut it into pieces.
I put some ghee on a flat pan and let that melt, added enough batter for 4 pancakes, and cooked them through. I did not reapply the ghee for the second set of 4, and they cooked just fine without it.
Experiment success! I tried one warm with a slice of ham and it was very good. It had a light taste that did not conflict with the ham flavor. The texture was like a pancake, but not as light and fluffy. It folded over without breaking, very pliable. If you wanted to roll them, I would suggest adding some coconut milk to make the batter thinner.
They were not sweet, so that makes them a good vehicle for egg salad, tuna salad, or even organic unsweetened apple butter. I tried a second one with raw honey and cinnamon and it was great.
. I'm going to freeze the rest and toss them in the toaster or toaster oven before I use them. I don't know the non-frozen shelf life of something like this. I also believe and suggest to others that they need to be eaten sparingly as it could quickly become a daily substitute for bread.
I can see these tossed with a bit of garlic powder and butter in a pan. I will definitely make these again.
