Simple, fast and delicious, I like fried plantains for breakfast. Oatmeal is a nice accompaniment to fortify the meal further.
Just unpeel a fresh plantain, slice into quarter-inch-thick slices, and place into a pre-heated pan. I usually spray that pan with 100% canola oil before heating.
Once the plantains are cooking, don't move them around. Sprinkle with cinnamon and some brown sugar if desired. Cook on medium for about a minute and flip over to cook the other side. Serve hot.
