Eggnog Quick Bread

Eggnog Quick Bread Prep 20 m Cook 40 m Ready In 1 h 10 m
Recipe By:Bev "This eggnog bread would be good sprinkled with confectioners' sugar and served with Christmas breakfast." Ingredients2 eggs, beaten1 cup eggnog (lactose free or non dairy)2 teaspoons rum flavored extract1 cup white sugar (raw sugar)1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, softened (Smart balance)2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (GF flour mix)

Fried Plantains

I absolutely looooooooove fried plantains!!!!!

These do not need an official recipe.
The longest/hardest part of this recipe is waiting for the Plantains to ripen.

If you're making this for a snack use one large overly ripe Plantain; if you're making these for a crowduse 3 to 4 overly ripe Plantains.
Peel (you have to cut them, these are NOT bananas) Plantains.
Cut Plantains on the diagonal/bias.
You do not need a ton of oil for this "recipe"
I usually coat the pan with olive oil and put a nice big spoonful of Smart Balance and saute' the Plantains.
Because of the natural sugar they tend to stick. :-(
They're done when it's crispy around the edges and soft.
Place on a paper towel to absorb the extra oil.
Sprinkle kosher salt on them and ENJOY!!!!
Optional: drizzle honey over the Plantains and then sprinkle kosher salt on top.
