But when I woke up on Saturday, he’d already whisked the MC’s away to their swimming lessons, so no toast or tea for me. What I did have to look forward to was a morning full of mundane cleaning chores. Which is when I hit upon the brilliant idea of making my breakfast a pre-reward for the chores I was about to do.
A truly inspiring breakfast based on the chocolate, olive oil and sea salt toasts which appeared in the June 2010 issue of my favourite Delicious Magazine.
Grab a couple of slices of sourdough bread, butter lightly, sandwich some dark chocolate in the middle, heat some olive oil in a pan and cook on one side. Remove from pan, wipe pan down with kitchen paper, repeat other side. Sprinkle with sea salt and tuck in. Oooh baby.
If you want to read the “proper” way of making these toasts, visit Ellie from Almost Bourdain, she takes you through the steps here.
And guess what, if you make more than one, simply wrap in aluminium foil and store in the fridge, then pop into a low oven to warm up – instant breakfast the next day. Very brilliant!
MC Junior named the bread "Chocolate Yum"
For the record, the chores got done ☺
