Happy Wednesday, loves!

Lydia and I have been preparing breakfast to-order lately.  Here’s our menu from this past weekend:

Freshly-squeezed OJ, coffee and tea

Eggs Any Way with bacon and/or sausage, toast and/or a cheddar biscuit warm from the oven

Smoked Salmon Omelet with chive crème fraîche

Belgian Waffle with warm maple syrup

Oatmeal topped with caramelized bananas and pecans.

This weekend we’ll add a breakfast BLTA—an  egg sandwich with bacon, arugula, oven-roasted tomato and avocado on toasted sourdough.

But nothing compares to a toasted nutella & banana breakfast sandwich.

I advise dusting with powdered sugar and presenting it to the one you love on a special plate.  Or you can savor it my way— straight from a paper towel, alone at the kitchen counter.


Nutella & Banana Breakfast Panini

Serves 1 lucky duck


2 slices egg bread (brioche or challah)

1-2 tablespoons nutella

1 ripe banana, peeled and sliced

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened


Preheat your panini press or a nonstick pan over medium-high heat

Spread the nutella evenly on one side of each bread slice.  Top one piece with the sliced bananas and press the bread into a sandwich.  Spread both sides with butter and place in the the hot press or pan.

Close your panini press until bread is toasty and nutella has melted, about 3 minutes.  If using a nonstick pan, press the sandwich down with a heavy lid or your spatula. Turn your heat to medium and flip when the first side is golden brown, about 2 minutes.  Cook until the second side is golden brown, about 2 minutes more.
