Tortilla de guineitos
Banana breakfast omelet

1 very ripe banana (an every day banana, or 3 guineitos niños - dwarf or finger bananas)
1 egg
oil for frying

Peel and slice the guineitos into thin slices. Fry them in medium oil (see fig. 1 below), turning after they begin to get soft and brown. Fry the other side a few minutes. When almost done use a spatula to squish them down and cut them up. When ready for eggs they should look like fig.2 below. Add a scrambled egg and cook until done. The finished tortillas should look like the first picture on top. Serve with French or Italian toasted and buttered bread slices and café con leche. This is a typical meal, you can serve it for breakfast, for lunch, for dinner as a side dish, or for snack.
