Scrambled Eggs and Plantains Breakfast Hash

scrambled eggs and plantain breakfast hashSince we excluded grains from our diet, I’ve been experimenting with our starchy foods that we didn’t normally eat before we started following the Paleo diet. One of those starches is plantains.

When they’re fully ripe, they have a nice sweetness to them, so I’ve started using them in a lot of recipes where I previously used sweet potatoes (which are basically the go-to starch in our household). Since the flavor is definitely different, I’ve found plantains to be a nice change of pace from sweet potatoes.

Since bell peppers are on the Environmental Working Group’s “Dirty Dozen” list, I recommend using organic bell peppers in this recipe.

Scrambled Eggs and Plantains Breakfast Hash
Recipe type: breakfast
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 2-3

  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 1 plantain, peeled and diced into ½” cubes
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • ½ green bell pepper, diced
  • ½ red bell pepper, diced
  • 4 eggs
  • freshly ground black pepper

  1. Cook bacon in a medium frying pan over medium heat, turning occasionally. Remove from the pan when fully cooked, reserving 1 tbsp. of bacon drippings in the pan. Set the bacon on top of a plate covered with a paper towel to absorb the excess grease. Crumble the bacon once cooled.
  2. Meanwhile, wash and chop the vegetables.
  3. Over medium-high heat, saute the onion and plantains in the remaining bacon drippings for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add bell peppers and continue cooking until the plantains are slightly soft.
  5. While that’s cooking, beat the eggs in a small bowl and set aside.
  6. When the vegetables are almost done, add the scrambled eggs to the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low, stirring frequently until fully cooked.
  7. Season with freshly ground pepper and top with crumbled bacon.
