3 ripe plantains
1/4 Crisco shortening
1 c. basic meat filling (see recipe in meat section)
1/4 tsp. salt
Peel the ripe plantain bananas.
Slice the bananas length wise. You should be able to get 4 slices per banana but depends on how big the banana is.
In a big frying pan, heat the Crisco shortening and fry the banana slices for about 6-8 minutes until golden. (DO NOT BURN THEM.)
Place them on a plate with no paper towel. They will stick!
Make a small pin wheel with the banana slice by securing it with toothpicks leaving a small whole in the center for the filling.
Stuff the wheel with the meat filling (or your favorite filling like crab, lobster etc.)
Beat the eggs. First the egg whites, then add the egg yolks and salt.
Dip the banana pin wheels in the egg mix and fry in the Crisco shortening about 3-4 minutes.
Now after you fry them, you can place them on a plate with paper towels to drain the excess shortening.
The pin wheels can be stuffed with parmesan cheese, or your favorite filling.
Usually 2 pin wheels are more than enough for an adult.
Serve as an appetizer.
