Pan-fried BanaNutella Sandwich

My mom left me with a jar of Nutella and then I thought that simply spreading it onto a slice of bread and then eating it right away would be a mainstream thing for me to do.

While classes were going on, the gears in my head were turning and churning — not because of the lectures, but — because I was thinking of another way to consume my jar of Nutella. I even thought of a Strawberry + Nutella combination but after two hours of driving through the streets of Dumaguete City and checking out fruit stalls, grocery stores and supermarkets, all hope of such a combination was gone.

And then blah, blah, blah. I will skip to the recipe now.

Ingredients (for one serving):

  • Two slices of bread
  • Two teaspoons of Nutella
  • One banana
  • Half a bar of butter
  • Procedure:

    1. Spread one teaspoon of Nutella on the face of each slice of bread. Top one slice with banana slices and place the second slice of bread on top.

    3. Preheat the frying pan at a low to medium heat (You don’t want your butter to burn now, do you?).
    4. Melt half of the half bar of butter (that makes it a quarter of a bar of butter) onto the frying pan.

    8. With only one side of the sandwich fried, use a spatula to set the sandwich aside.
    9. Add the remaining butter to the pan and let it melt.
    10. Put the sandwich back onto the pan to fry the other side of the sandwich until the side is golden.

    My Late Lunch at Don Juan

    After that photo shoot, I saw that it was almost 3PM and realised that I hadn’t eaten lunch yet. I decided to go to the Al Fresco Area at Robinsons Place Dumaguete to scout for a restaurant that served lunch and dessert. Cheer dance season had ended which meant that I could go back to my big eating habits so I really, really wanted some satisfying dessert. I saw Don Juan and checked out the menu posted outside and saw that they served what I needed and craved for so I chose Don Juan. Read More
