Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Spice the burger patties with salt, pepper and spices. Place them in the grill or pre-oiled heated pan and allow to cook until your preferred level of ‘cooked’ is reached. Be sure to flip the patties over at intervals
  2. Whilst the patties are still piping hot, place the slices of cheese on them to melt
  3. For the plantains, wash, peel and cut each one into two and place in a pan of heated olive oil. Allow them to cook slightly, then remove from pan and mash into a thick paste. You can add some salt at this point
  4. Use a roller (or anything that works like a roller) to flatten the mashed paste to about ½ inch, then place it in the heated pan a second time until cooked. Remember to flip them over at intervals while they cook
  5. Place the fried plantains on paper towels to absorb any excess oil
  6. Now assemble the burger patties (with melted cheese), sliced tomatoes and onions, and plantains in the typical burger arrangement. Plantain -> patty (with melted cheese) -> tomatoes, onions, lettuce -> plantain.
  7. Serve with pink sauce (mix the ketchup, mayonnaise, and a few drops of lemon. Stir until pink and thoroughly combined).
