Plantain and Egg Frittata- Gas Cooker Method

I guess most of you are already acquainted with my baked plantain and egg frittata. I got lots of amazing feedback when I posted the recipe few days ago. I was so delighted to see the pictures some of you sent to me and I felt really fulfilled.

I also felt sad that some of you couldn’t try it because you reached out to me, saying you don’t have an oven at home or don’t know how to operate one and asked if there is any other way the recipe can be created. Before now, I only knew how to make this recipe with an oven, but I promised them I was going to try it out using a gas cooker. 

At first, I was really skeptical about it, but I told myself that I didn’t have anything to loose if it didn’t come out right and I had everything to gain if it did. So I began the experiment and used the creative ability God gave to me and the end result was amazing! In my opinion, the gas cooker and frying pan version of the frittata tastes way better than the oven and baking pan version. I must also add that it was a whole lot easier and faster to prepare. So check out the recipe below.

  • 4 ripe plantains
  • 3 table spoons olive oil
  • ½ medium onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ medium red bell pepper, cut in strips
  • ½ medium green bell pepper, cut in strips
  • 2 fresh tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 seasoning cube
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup chopped sausage
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying the plantain


  • Heat up 2 cups of vegetable oil in a frying pan.
  • Wash ripe plantain thoroughly and peel off the skin . In a mixing bowl, cut the plantain into preferred shape and size, sprinkle salt to taste and mix thoroughly to combine.
  • Next gently drop plantain piece after piece into the hot oil but be careful not to over crowd the pan so the temperature of the oil doesn’t drop. Fry on both sides for 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned. Set aside.
  • In a skillet, heat up olive oil on medium heat. Sauté onions and garlic for 1 minute.
  • Next, add tomatoes and leave to simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Then add curry powder, thyme, seasoning cube, ground pepper, sausage and salt to taste. Stir and leave to cook for another 3 minutes on medium heat.
  • Finally, add bell peppers, stir and allow to simmer for 1 minute, then take off heat and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs and add tomato/sausage mixture, season with salt and pepper if necessary. Stir to combine.
  • Coat frying pan with cooking spray or melted butter or vegetable oil. Then pour the egg mixture into the frying pan.
  • Lay the fried plantain gently on top of the egg mixture and cover the frying pan with a lid and place on low heat, leave to cook for 20 minutes. It is important that you cover the frying pan with a lid and your heat is set to the lowest so that the frittata dosen’t burn.
  • From the lid, you can see that the egg mixture is starting to firm up.
  • When it is completely firmed up, especially in the center, take off the lid and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  1. Thank you.Wish I cook go into the pic and start eating.

  2. Wow. Creativity at it’s peak

  3. Thanks for sharing…always. looks quite interesting. I just asked my kids; they can be very choosy; if they’ll like, they said yes. I wanna ask though, when you lay out the fried plantain on the egg mixture and cover up, won’t it get burnt? I know you need to reduce the heat. Dat will help?
