Today’s breakfast – ‘Osh-nana-tella-sanga’

Brioche, banana, nutella sandwich.  A perfect Sunday brekky smash hit or a naughty snack. This sanga is what the Russian Babushkas are to Eurovision = golden gold.

If you are thinking “what can I substitute to make it less fattening?” then stop. Walk away and grow some koftas. This a breakfast TREAT! Impress your friends, eat during a self-pity binge  – that kind of treat. Capish?

1 banana
2 slices of brioche bread
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp butter
2tsp mascarpone
Crushed pistachios to decorate


Heat butter in a heavy set saucepan, add brown sugar while butter is bubbling away. Once sugar starts to caramelize, add in sliced banana. Turn banana pieces over after one side is a lovely brown yet slightly crispy texture. Repeat on the other side. Place cooked banana on a paper towel.

Heat a grill pan to medium heat then add brioche slices, cook both sides until zebra-like lines appear on bread. Spread one side of sanga with nutella and the other with mascarpone.  Place bananas on top of nutella side and then add the other slice. Top off with a good dollop of mascarpone and decorate with a few crushed pistachios.

Wait for pop sound, that’s your artery. Whatevs. Eat up!!!
