Oh my Goodness…those are the words that describe these amazing little guys. I came home from the gym the other night and the house smelled incredible, different, but yet familiar. I smelled Colombian food, but really could not place it. You will have to make this to really get the flavors to explode.
Henry had developed a new side dish, which has made it into the top ranks of my favorites immediately.
You will need the following for 1 serving, approximately 4 balls:
- 1 ripe (golden yellow) plantain
- 1 thick slice of bacon
- 1 garlic clove
- a small wedge of Mitika goat cheese, chop into small bits, as the bacon and garlic
- a little sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
