This toast is inspired by a close friend of mine, @beerbourbonandbbq. I am blessed with the nicest and finest people I've met along this food journey. It is rare to find like-minded people these days. I am grateful to find a handful.
It is no surprise that @beerbourbonandbbq gave me this idea saying that he usually makes a PBJ with bananas and honey sandwich whenever he is going for a dive. The combination sounds very intriguing and I know I have to give it a try.
During my Russian-Ukraine recipe project, I found a thingy called burnt honey. My gut tells me that it will be perfect for this toast. With little twists and turns, out came this toast. This just leveled up a normal PB&J into something awesome. I am not bragging, you just have to give this recipe a try to find out for yourself.
