Someday, if I have a cafeteria, I will be serving these open-faced toasts. To me, they are like mini pizzas. Mini pizzas that I can flirt around with that holy trinity (dough, sauce and cheese) concept without tarnish. I can bend the rules and dance the fine line between savory and sweet.



Besides pizza and bread, peanut butter has gotta be the best human creation of all time! There, I said it. Look at Death in Meet Joe Black. He even compared love-making with peanut butter. Lol!


Other than Pic's, Amazin' Graze offers 100% peanuts too.


Anyway, always get a good quality jar of peanut butter, making sure the ingredient consists of peanut butter only. No added oil or sugar. To that, you can add extra flavors from other ingredients, like let's say, caramel and bananas.


 

Ingredients:

(Serve 1)

  • Stale Bread, 2 Slices

  • Unsalted Butter, 2 Heaping Spread + 2 TBSP

  • Vegemite, 2 Tiny Spread

  • Creamy Peanut Butter Preferably Pic's or Amazin' Graze

  • Granulated Sugar, 2 Heaped TBSP

  • Bananas Sliced Lengthwise, 2

  • Sea Salt, Pinch

  • Coconut Rum, 2 TBSP

  • Hazelnuts / Any Nuts Coarsely Chopped, A Handful

 

Equipment:

  • Cast Iron Skillet / Pan

 

Directions:

  1. Spread butter onto the bread, 1 side only.

  2. Toast in a skillet until crispy brown.

  3. Transfer onto a serving plate, browned side up.

  4. Spread vegemite onto the toast.

  5. Followed by the peanut butter.

  6. Next, add sugar into the same skillet over medium heat.

  7. Leave the sugar untouched until melted and caramelized.

  8. Remove from heat and add in the bananas, 2 TBSP of butter and salt.

  9. Return to heat and swirl to coat the bananas well.

  10. Continue cooking until the butter has completely melted.

  11. Add in the rum and cook until the alcohol has evaporated.

  12. *Careful as it may flambé.*

  13. Remove from heat and immediately spoon the caramel and bananas onto the toast.

  14. Garnish with some hazelnuts.

  15. Serve immediately.


Gorgeous, isn't it?


A bite of heaven...
