My Jamaican Breakfast - Liver with boiled bananas + yams - yummy!

Jamaican Breakfast - Liver with Fried Dumplings
There are so many topics to write about regarding Jamaica. Since in almost everything, I like to limit my choices to three (3), I will talk about one of the cores of my personality – food!
I love to eat, I take absolute pleasure in eating. And I am being totally modest and honest, but I do believe that Jamaican foods are so delicious.
So this morning while I am writing, I am waiting for my breakfast to be delivered; and this morning, I will partake of liver, green bananas, and yams, yummy :-)
Liver (or cow liver), is a traditional breakfast. I must say that my two girls are not too fond of it, but I am hoping they will change and come over to my side and see what they are missing.
I have included a picture above on what a liver breakfast looks like – nice huh – the liver can be prepared with green bananas or johnny cakes - it is really journey cakes, but in Jamaica, we say Johnny cakes :-)
Johnny cakes are kneaded flour rolled into shapes and fried.
It can also be had with fried ripe plantains, boiled potatoes and boiled dumplings – made from kneaded flour.
For richness, we can also have steamed calaloo with the liver and the other provisions.
At this point, I am salivating as I am writing, are you? lol
And if you are not into cooking the bananas, johnny cakes, plantains, yams, the liver will go down well also with just two nice chunks of good ‘ole’ Jamaican hard dough bread :-)
Oh wait! My breakfast is here... going to indulge – talk again next time.
