Hagelslag for #BrunchWeek #sponsor


So, remember I'm doing things a little bit differently for #BrunchWeek this year?? Click to read about it: here. The gist - I'm sharing some foods from around the world that people eat for breakfast...and it differs greatly from the American regimen of eggs and bacon or pancakes. Today we're heading to the Netherlands our virtual #BrunchWeek tabletop travel.

Now, I lived in the Netherlands for three years when I was a kid and don't remember once eating this for breakfast. Not. One. Single. Time. But, then again, my mom was mean; she's a sweet Nonna, though. But eating bread with chocolate sprinkles wouldn't have been too high on her list of things to allow.

I'm sharing this sweet breakfast treat with you all. In the Netherlands, sprinkles are called hagelslag which translates to 'hailstorm'. Hagelslag comes in a variety of flavors, shapes, and sizes, and are most commonly eaten atop of buttered bread. I had fully intended to make homemade bread for this post, but the week got away from me.



Ingredients
  • bread, toasted or not (it depends on your preference)
  • butter, at room temperature
  • chocolate for shaving (I used Pacari's Piura Quemazon Raw Organic 70%*)

Procedure
Toast your bread - or not. Butter it. Shave chocolate over the top; I used a mandolin slicer. That's it. Does this even count as a recipe??

  2. Haha - love Wendy's comment. :D I agree - it counts as a recipe - you have shared with us a food that most of us have probably never heard of, and it sounds like something everyone should get to enjoy for breakfast at least once! :)
