I call this dish, egg bound,  because the eggs bind the ingredients together like a rubber band.

You can use any fresh veggies and seasonings.


  • 2 organic eggs, beaten with salt and black pepper
  • 2 cups of fresh three color peppers, diced or in strips
  • 1 cup Spanish onions, diced
  • 1 or 2 ripe plantains (“Maduros”), fresh or frozen, fried and mashed.
  • Optional: strips of turkey ham, bacon, or any cold cut of choice
  • 4 slices of low fat provolone cheese


  • 1Mash the sweet plantains, then set aside.
  • 2In a nonstick skillet, sauté the peppers with the onion. Add any cook meat pieces(optional). Remove from skillet.
  • 3Cover the bottom of the skillet with the mashed plantain. Then spread all the sautéed peppers, onion, and meats on top of the plantain.
  • 4Pour the egg mixture, evenly over the peppers. Set heat to medium and cover tightly. Allow 5-7 minutes for the egg mix to cook completely. Watch closely as not to overcook the egg.
  • 5Uncover, layer the provolone to cover the cooked egg. Cover for one minute or until it melts as seen in the photo. Serve warm!
