Plantain Pie

So I did an experiment with plantain which gave birth to this plantain pie recipe, I was reading for my midterm exam over the weekend and remembered I bought some plantains that I wrapped up and kept to allow them ripe, I didn’t want to fry them the normal way and I told my oldest child about making pie and she said let’s try it and the journey began…lol. And I’m glad I tried it, I’m definitely going to make it again because we all loved it.

So, if you want to make this plantain pie make sure you use ripe plantains not too ripe but it should ripe enough because I made the mistake and I had some lumps after I mashed the plantains. You can make your egg fillings anyway you like it. Let’s get started!

Plantain Pie
  • 6 Ripe Plantains
  • 5 Eggs
  • 1 Red onion
  • 2 Pieces Sausage
  • 1 Teaspoon Minced ginger
  • 1/4 Cup Red bell pepper (diced)
  • 1/4 Cup Green bell pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Milk
  • Oil for frying
  • Knorr bouillon powder/ cube
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Place a large saucepan/pot over medium-high heat.

  2. Cut the plantains into two and cover with water and bring to a boil. You want to let the plantains soft but still firm.

  12. After the plantains are all boiled, peel (be careful it is still going to be hot) and place in a large bowl, mash the plantains ( you can use a potato masher) make sure you get a smooth paste, it is okay if you have some lumps (but not too much). set aside to cool down.

  13. When it has completely cooled down, place a parchment on a working top or on a baking sheet,  scoop a small ball out with your hand and place on the parchment paper, use your palm to flatten the mashed plantain make sure it is not too thick, add some egg mixture.

Recipe Notes


I put 5 eggs in the ingredients but I had leftover so you might want to reduce the quantity of the eggs.

  1. Hi, These look really nice so I am going to give this a go. I have a glut of plantains, so I would like to make a lot. Can I freeze them. ? Thank you.

  2. the plantain mixture was not able to be folded so I added some flour and made these into plantain balls instead. Tasting.!!

    1. Great idea! You need to spread a parchment paper on your work station (you can rub oil on it) then press the mashed plantains on it.
      When you want to fold it, you’ll lift the parchment paper.

    1. Hello AJ
      You need to crack the eggs into a bowl, season with knorr, salt, onion powder, milk, and whisk then add to the sausage mixture and cook them together.
      I hope this helps!
