Ingredients

Directions

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, powdered milk, salt, and baking powder. On a flat surface, make a well with the combined dry ingredients. Place the shortening and 1 cup of water in the well. Working your way inward, start to work the shortening and dry ingredients into a dough. When dough is no longer sticky, cover with oiled plastic wrap and let the dough res for 1 hour.

On flat floured surface, roll out the dough to a circle about 1/2-inch thick. Using a 3-inch cookie cutter, cut round pieces from the dough.

Heat up about 2 inches of oil at 350 degrees, and then fry the dough for about 1 minute on each side until they puff. Place in a warm oven only until the omelet is ready.

Whisk the eggs in a small bowl with a sprinkle each of salt and pepper.

Cut plantains on a bias and fry in very hot oil until golden on both sides, then remove from oil and set aside.

In a separate pan, saute 2 onions in 1 tablespoon of olive oil for about 2 minutes then add the fried plantains and pour the eggs in. Turn the heat down to low and cook for about 8 minutes or until the top is almost thoroughly cooked. Flip the omelet over and cook for about 6 more minutes. Saute the remaining onion in 3 tablespoons of oil, add the roasted peppers, garlic, and cilantro. Cook until tender then puree and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Cut omelet into 4 equal quarters and serve on top of pepper sauce with the fried bread.
