bacon plantain fritters

When I was checking out at the grocery store, the clerk and I started chatting about plantains.  She asked me how to cook them and I told her that most of the time I just fry them up in butter on low until they are browned.  We then got into a discussion on butter and I won’t bore you with the details.

I love plantains. They are so versatile and make the perfect snack or side for dinner.

I was thinking of a simple paleo autoimmune breakfast side when I created these easy bacon plantain fritters.

Mr. Bejelly and the Little loved them so much that he told me I could make them anytime I felt like it so don’t mind the that it’s simple, this dish is pretty darn delicious.
