Boiled Eggs & Plantain Canapes

Sometimes when entertaining visitors, you do not have to go all out to cook the usual, y'know, rice, pounded yam with all sorts of soups bursting with different cuts of meat and fish.

Little bits here and there, and a bit of creativity is all you need to wow your guests, and give them a really memorable dining experience.

When ever we have guests, I do enjoy staying with the crew, chatting and laughing and having a good time,... not remain in the kitchen slaving away..

For this dish, all you need is a really good drink to pair with it, and perhaps a few other simple, easy to make, and quick canapes...

What you need
  • Fresh eggs, as many as you want, usually 1-2 eggs per guest
  • Plantains
  • Pre-made ata din din (get recipe here)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Some mayonnaise (to prevent the yolk from drying out)
  • Some boiled ripe plantains. Remove the black seeds and make into a puree

What to do
  1. Boil the eggs (hard boiled) and carefully remove the shell. Then slice across the side and remove the yolk. 
  2. Place all the yolk in a bowl. Also add some pureed plantain. With a fork, break the yolks and mix together with the boiled pureed plantain. 
  3. Then add a generous amount of ata din din. (You may add some mayonnaise to keep the mixture moist and prevent from drying out.) 
  4. Mix all together until well combined. Finally, scoop portions of the yolk back into the boiled egg whites. 
  5. Garnish by sticking small pieces of fried plantain into the eggs. 
  6. Place in the fridge until needed.
