Banana Heaven

The Christmas leftovers are nearly done but there's still a little treasure to be had. Softening bananas in the fruit bowl and the end of a walnut loaf lurking in the bread bin were a case in point. Here was a perfect breakfast in the making. The nutty bread is revived with a light toasting. Overripe bananas can taste of pear drops but a layer of cream cheese rounds out the flavour. I top the lot with honey to sweeten the cheese and grate nutmeg over to finish.  No butter required; that would be too rich.

Don't forget to turn down your toaster. Mine was too fierce so these small slices of bread caught round the edges. Mind you, burnt toast is not always a bad thing. But that's a topic for another day.

  1. I like big blade-fulls of Marmite myself on hot buttered toast washed down with a large mug of tea. A great reviver after the night before.
