breakfast obsessions: bananatella toasted sandwiches

when it's 35ºF, gloomy-grey and raining, what do you have for breakfast? depends. how much time do you have? well, i had 15mins if i wanted to get in extra service time, or an hour if i wanted to be lazy or convince myself that i'd melt in the rain. i chose the latter *guilty face*...
anyway! the night before the hubby and i did some grocery shopping at mitsuwa, and picked up their delicious bread as we always do. fyi, it's called "shokupan" (しょくぱん) and you can get it crustless, regular, or thick-sliced! it is honestly my favorite everyday bread.
e got the coffee brewing, cL came over, and i got to making these quick and ridiculously-easy sandwiches - which, in all honesty, can be breakfast, lunch, or a late-night snack.


bananatella toasted sandwiches:
it's simply bread, with peanut butter (i have honey-pb), sliced bananas and the surprise (and hubby-requested) ingredient - nutella! can we say yum?!
i lightly coated the outsides of the sandwiches with butter, and flopped them onto a hot griddle pan.
three minutes later, we had ourselves a delicious and decadent breakfast sandwich... sans eggs.


buen provecho!

Peanut butter and banana sandwiches and nutella and banana sandwiches are two of my favorites. I never even thought to combine them into one. Great idea!
