  • Author: Jessi's Kitchen
  • Prep Time: 5
  • Cook Time: 10
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x
  • Category: Breakfast




  • ½ lb ground hot sausage
  • ¼ cup cilantro (optional)

Fried Plantains

  • 1 Plantain (I prefer them somewhere in between green and yellow)
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • Dash of sea salt (optional)
  • Dash of chili powder (optional)


  1. Mix the cilantro in with the sausage and create four small patties.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium high heat and add the sausage. Cook for approximately five minutes a side or until internal temperature reaches 165.
  3. Peel the plantain and slice diagonally into about one inch slices.
  4. Heat the coconut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Place the slice in the oil once it is fully heated. Cook for two to three minutes a side.
  6. Remove the plantains and sprinkle with salt and chili powder if desired.


  • You can easily adjust the quantity to feed more than two people.
