Baked Plantain Wedges December 20, 2011

Jamie says: Plantains. They’re so good, but most of the time, they’re not so good for you because they’re deep-fried. But not these. And I didn’t compromise on taste either. Just ask Kathryn. She agrees 200%.

Kathryn said they were the best plantains of her life, and she loves plantains! She said they were “the perfect combination of sweet and salty, and they were so tender and moist.”

Hot, moist, and baked to sweet golden perfection
