My Parents are Haitian We eat breadfruit with fish or meat in red gravy. Some times we mash it up like mash potato, its then called Fufu add some meat of your choice,,,,..... DELICIOUS... I like it the way the Jamaicans and Nigerians make it as well..

In Haiti we call this "Lam" or "Lam Veritable" we eat it many ways, we fry it like a fried plantain, mash it up like mashed potatoes we call it "Tomtom or Fufu" when mashed. My personal favorite of eating is making it into a shake. You boil the fruit with some cinnamon sticks, when soft put in a blender, add a banana, vanilla extract, carnation milk, sugar, ice and blend until thick and juicy!
