2 large dark spotted plantains
12 ounces uncooked bacon
1-2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
Cayenne pepper, to season


1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Slice both plantains into 1/2 inch slices. Cut your strips of bacon in half.
2.Take one plantain slice and wrap ½ piece of bacon around the flat side of the round. Repeat this step until each plantain slice is wrapped in ½ slice of bacon.
3.Place all bacon-wrapped plantains on your baking sheet seam side down. Brush each with a little maple syrup. Sprinkle cayenne pepper on each plantain (use more if you like spicy flavors, and omit or only use a small pinch if you do not like spicy flavors).
4.Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes until the bacon is crispy. Stick a toothpick in each bacon-wrapped plantain, place on a serving tray and enjoy! Serves 6.
