Bolon De Verde (Plantain and Cheese Biscuit)
Cut peeled and dried plantains into 1-inch rounds. Heat a skillet with oil. Fry the plantains until both bottoms are golden yellow ( a little brown, but not too much.) Remove the fried plantains and place in a metal pot. Immediately after, mash plantains with something heavy (the bottom of a bottle works well). Add butter until the plantains form a dough. Knead cheese into the plantain dough. Form into tennis-sized balls. Serve immediately. This is a typical dish from Ecuador, some options are to also add bacon and diced onion. They are served hot with a fried egg, or a steak (beef or liver), and coffee. (Cheese should be fresh and the kind that melts). Mash everything well, form balls and fry until they are golden.
