Corned Beef Hash or fritters.

Spam Fitters


Aren't SPAM fritters the same as this? Or are the size and batter different. Is it possible to have SPAM Fritters with SPAM Chips? And does it make any sense?  Grin

Now, in a supermarket near you...   Tongue

It's OK. Plus they do look like they're a bit different anyway. The fries look breaded, like "wienerschnitzel fingers" and the fritters are battered like fish and chips. They both look horrid to me anyway! I meant to buy one of those bags just to see what they were like. I'm glad I didn't. About the only way I could stand SPAM is pan fried as a side for eggs.

 Here in the Antipodes we have  "green bananas",  used by our Pasifika brethren from the Islands, for cooking. They are bigger firmer greener banana  used much like potato or yam.  Baked, toasted, boiled.  I was never brave enough to try, when I lived in an area where shops  sold them as staple.

 As an aside; while studying Ghana at primary school [age around 9yr], our teacher  cooked us up a batch  of chopped bananas [in place of plantain] and paprika. I  have experimented at home since, but it has never tasted the same as on the old electric fry pan  in the classroom

Dear Annie, I just found no less than 10 recipes for green and plantain bananas! I'll go thru each one later today, but suffice it to say they're so starchy they can be used to make a dough, and filled with cheese or meat, and even used as dumplings!

I'll drop this link here, and go through the descriptions after work

THANK YOU!!!!
I have seen a number of simple plaintain "recipes" on TV shows but have not been able to get anything in print!
Being deathly allergic to wheat, corn, soy, rye, eggs and dairy it is hell-on-earth to try to find/make a sandwich or bun.
I have been able to make biscuits and cookies with rice flour but getting it to rise is a royal pain.

 perhaps I can make a plantain bun that will hold together to make a coconut-cheese-substitute cheeseburger....
Or modify one of those "stuffed thingies" to stuff it with burger...

I once tried a lasagna-like dish made with plantains from the deli counter of a Puerto Rican grocery store in Florida. Sliced plantains layered with ground beef and cheese. Quite good.

I should probably point out that that all the recipes in that link involve Plantain banana."Verde" refers to the green plantain. "Maduro" refers to the ripe plantain, but both are plantains. Platano "Macho" = Plantain.

At first, I had to re-read her description because the writer is Central American or South American and she was using a couple of different terms, which I never heard ("Crocante", "Patacón", "Choclo" ) or which Google Translate may not be able to translate properly in the context given (Picadillo, Tortilla, Bolón)

"Crocante" = "crujiente" in canonical Spanish = crispy in English.

"Bolón" = "bola de masa" = dumpling

"Patacones" = pan fried cakes

"Tostón" is a type of ancient coin, like saying "Guinea." It generally means "Quart / Quarter"

"Tortilla" in generic Spanish refers to something flattened. In Mexico it's corn flat cakes, in Spain it's omelette.

"Chifle" is Spanish for "whistle"

"Choclo" is a type of Peruvian maize with oversize, soft kernels. If you don't have it, you can use corn on the cob, or Hominy (nixtamalized corn) kernels instead.

"Yuca" = Cassava root, a type of starchy root. Usually milled to make a flour before cooking, like Polenta.

"Picadillo" = generic Latin American name for minced meat.

"Ají" = type of spicy sauce with Ají peppers, onion and tomato.

"Ají Criollo" = "Ají, European migrant" style = basically Pesto brought by Italian migrants to South America

dinner last night and lunch today.

onion, garlic. Fried in butter, cubed potato, and green peppers. cooked mild italian sausage and deglazed the pan, added taco seasoning and chipotle. Tasty.

The monster of a housemate slathered a thick layer of bluecheese dressing and hot sauce all over the portion I gave him. seriously, he never tasted it, it could have been dog food and it would have tasted the same with the amount of dressing he dumped on it.
