Food Love: Cuddled Eggs and Caramelised Banana Pocket Sandwich

How about a deviation from wedding stuff for today?

It's a beautiful Sunday morning and I had the motivation and mood to cook my man a good breakfast to start off his day for work.

Cuddled Eggs and Caramelised Banana Pocket Sandwich

For someone who works outdoors and in an active job, he needs all the protein and energy he can get. Bananas are a rich source of potassium, which helps your muscles function properly, and also gives you energy. Eggs are a good source of protein. All in all, a good breakfast to fill you up with energy for a full day of work.

I used the recipe for Cuddled Eggs from Sweet Paul with a couple of modifications. I didn't have heavy cream in the house so I didn't put that in. I added bits of honey baked ham, black pepper, salt and McCormick Mixed Herbs.

It turned out very yummy, although the next time I do this I'll probably just bake it for 5 to 8 mins instead.

How to make caramelised bananas:

1 med banana (or 2 small ones)
1 tablespoon of butter or margarine
1 tablespoon of brown sugar

Cut the banana into small pieces.
Melt butter and brown sugar in a frying pan over medium heat.
Add in the bananas flat side down, in one layer on the melted sugar and turn down the heat to low.
Flip the bananas over after a couple of minutes when they are nicely browned or when the smell of bananas fill your kitchen, and brown the other side.

To make the pocket sandwiches:
Butter 2 sides of the bread, put it in your sandwich maker.
Ladle up the caramelised bananas on the bread.
Add the second slice of bread on top, clamp down the sandwich maker.
3 mins later you're done!

A very yummy breakfast.
