Arroz con Huevos Fritos y Plantanitos Maduros
It has happened to all of us. We open the refrigerator and it's basically empty; the cupboards are in the same bare condition. What to make for dinner? If you are Cuban, there is always white rice in the house. Eggs are a staple in every household, and if you're lucky, there's a ripe plantain sitting around. This is such a simple dish, and a satisfying, tasty one, that it requires basically no explanation.
Cook your white rice using whatever method you prefer. Fry your plantains (click here). Fry a couple of eggs per person until crispy on the edges and soft in the middle. Place them over a bed of white rice, with a couple of plantains on the side. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Now what? Slice your eggs over your rice and mix it together. You can cut up your plantains and toss them in the mix. It's gooooood!
