Eugene's Tostones


Four ripe plantains

Butter or ghee and olive oil

Sea salt to taste


Peel and slice plantains into roughly 1 inch slices

Heat a cast iron pan and add enough butter or ghee and olive oil to coat the pan

When the butter/ghee and oil is hot add the plantain slices

Flip, lightly browning each side

Remove from the pan and place on a paper towel

Cover slices with paper towels

Using a rubber mallet, or your most conveniently located heavy implement, smash the slices

Add the smashed slices back to the pan, cooking until crispy and golden brown

Remove from the pan and sprinkle with sea salt

Enjoy immediately, with or without dips.
