The Ultimate Plantain Frittata.

The Ultimate Plantain Frittata.

With all the requests I've been getting for more breakfast / brunch type recipes, I thought I'd share a classic Plantain Frittata with you. While not something you'd traditionally see in the Caribbean, I came up with this recipe a few years ago when I had friends visiting for the weekend. The idea behind this frittata was to include 3 things we're passionate about (ingredients) in the Caribbean... Salted Cod, Fresh Herbs and Ripe Plantains. You can be as creative as you want in your version.

Ultimate Caribbean Breakfast Recipe.

Ultimate Caribbean Breakfast Recipe.

Breakfast was usually a grab and go routine for me as a young fella on the islands during the week, as I went to school in the city and it meant leaving our sleepy village very early in the morning. I had to take a 2nd taxi (shared) when I got into San Fernando (2nd largest city in Trinidad) to make it in time for the first bell. So weekends was when mom would go all out with whatever we wanted for breakfast. Now this sort of breakfast was never included as I only developed a liking for many of the ingredients you'll see me use, during my travels across the Caribbean as an adult.

Breakfast Sausages With Bell Peppers.

Breakfast Sausages With Bell Peppers.

Your typical Caribbean breakfast is usually laden with ground provisions, dumplings, porridge, curries and roti (depending where in the Caribbean you are) and usually some sort of stewed salted meats (salted cod in most cases), so this recipe will not rank among those traditional type recipes. However, if you're looking for something with wonderful flavors, brilliant colors and textures, you'll be quite impressed with this dish. I'll be using pork (bratwurst) sausages, but you're free to use any sausage you like (I know some people are into turkey sausages.. just not my thing).

Caribbean Breakfast Hash.

Caribbean Breakfast Hash.

I’ll admit that I have a weakness for all types of ground provisions, but I have a special attachment to yams.  In soups, steamed, boiled, mashed, scalloped, roasted.. I’m country to heart and love ground provisions (or “food” as my Jamaican brothers and sisters would say) in all forms. Moving to Canada all those moons […]

Vienna sausages to compliment your eggs at breakfast.

Vienna sausages to compliment your eggs at breakfast.

One of the first things you learn to cook as a kid growing up on the islands is Vienna sausages for breakfast or a snack. I don’t recall when I first started making this but I ‘v gone and passed this simple recipe on to my cousins and now our daughters. Kieana was in love […]
