Egg and Plantain Bake w/ Recipe

I've had egg and plantains several times, but never like this. Mr. D. had a craving for it the other day but we had no plantains in stock and the store I know usually carries them for sure was closed; so that moment passed. We finally got some a couple of days ago. I decided to put a spin on it and not make it the regular way which is frying the eggs with the tomatoes and onions together and frying the plantains as usual.  I had some left over peppers on hand, so I decided to make use of them. I love the outcome and there will definitely be a repeat.

Ingredients
5 - 6 eggs
2 large ripe plantains
1/2 medium onion
1/2 medium tomato
1/2 medium green pepper
1/2 medium yellow pepper
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp ground hot pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp salt
1 knorr cube, crushed
Oil for frying

Directions 
1. Dice plantains by cutting down the middle lengthwise, then across lengthwise
2. Thinly dice peppers, tomato and onion
3. Heat up about 2-3 cups of oil in a deep pan on med heat. Once hot, fry plantains till golden brown
4. Remove from oil and set in a container/bowl layered with paper towel; set aside
5. Heat up a frying pan with 2 tbsp of oil on med -high heat; once hot, add onions and peppers and saute about 3mins, then add tomatoes and reduce to heat to low-med
6. Add curry powder, hot pepper, garlic powder, thyme, Italian seasoning, knorr cube and salt. stir and cook for another 5 - 7 minutes. Remove from heat
7. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F
8. Break and whisk eggs in a bowl with a pinch of salt
9. Prep baking dish by adding 1 tbsp of oil and spread around to coat dish with a pastry brush
10. Pour eggs into baking dish; gently add half of the pepper sauce into the egg mix spreading it around evenly; do the same with half of the plantains
11. Add the remaining pepper sauce, then plantains spreading evenly
12. Transfer to oven and bake for 25 - 30 minutes
13. Remove from oven; let it cool for about 10mins
14. Serve and Enjoy!





Notes:
1. Bake 20 - 25 minutes if you prefer your egg a little runny.
2. I like my pepper and onions very well cooked. So if you don't mind or have a preference for how you cook your veggies, you can skip the frying process by mixing the peppers, tomatoes and onions together with all the condiments and add to eggs directly.
