Can I just tell you how awesome it is to live in a country where it’s totally fine to just throw some Nutella on just about anything and eat it for breakfast without people thinking you’re a little weird? I love it. When we were at my in-laws house for the weekend, I got to eat croissants with Nutella, and it was totally normal. I’ve landed in the right place.
They eat some crazy stuff in Scotland, and I’m open to trying quite a bit of it, picky eater that I am. Although I fear some of it might kill me. The SIL insists I try haggis nachos. There’s a cafe a few doors down from us that serves them. That will come soon. Everybody goes on and on about deep-fried pizza which you can get in most chip shops here. I’m not sure whether or not people actually like it or if it’s just there for entertainment value, but I’ve been getting some pressure on that front, too. I’m already 100% on board with Scotch eggs. Give me more!
I’ve been seeing people put sprinkles on toast after coming back from Europe for a few years now, but when Joy the Baker actually put it in her book, I felt like it was totally legit, and I needed to make sure that everybody I knew actually tried this.
Guys, I’m not even going to “write a recipe.” Here’s what you do. Make toast. Any bread you have on hand will do. If you have something fabulous and eggy, even better. Not sure how it would work with super seedy bread, but give it a go if you like. I just used the everyday wheat sandwich bread we always have on hand.
Next, spread every last centimeter with your favorite chocolate hazelnut spread. Don’t be shy. Finally, get out your most colorful sprinkles. I find rainbow jimmies work best, but they brought me the little crunchy balls instead with my grocery order. It was crunchier, but still awesome.
We need more fun in our lives. We need to bring joy into our day on a regular basis. What better way to do that than to transform humble toast into something sweet and delightful. Make yourself smile. Make Nutella Fairy Toast!
