Instructions
  1. First, cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp, drain on paper towels and save ¼ cup of rendered bacon fat.
  2. Cut off the ends of your plantains and score the sides to remove the peel.
  3. In a large bowl, mash the plantains with a potato masher until smooth (a few lumps are fine).
  4. Crumble the cooked bacon and add to the mashed plantains.
  5. Add the salt and pepper and mix.
  6. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat (no hotter) and add the ¼ cup bacon fat.
  7. Form the plantain mixture into 8 small patties and fry in the bacon fat over medium heat, adjusting the heat to avoid burning. Cook on each side until golden brown and crisp.
  8. Garnish with greens.
