Buffet on Table: Breakfasts across Countries
Day 20: Cuban Breakfast Tostada and Cafe con Leche
Cuba is an island country in the Caribbean. Cuban cuisine is a fusion of Spanish and Caribbean cuisines. Cuban recipes share spices and techniques with Spanish cooking with some Caribbean influence in spice and flavor.
Cuban breakfast consists of a platter of scrambled eggs and bacon, usually with potatoes or a bowl of fruit with papayas and mangoes. The tostada can be served on the side or can be served all by itself.
Even though the name sounds like ‘toasted’, the bread in the Cuban tostada is actually grilled until nice and crispy with butter. The sandwich is then dipped in the coffee or milk and eaten.
Cafe con Leche:
Cubans love their coffee and make it in a special way. I’m not a coffee person, but I am willing to try it out once in a while. This Coffee with milk and sugar sounded just the way I like to drink my coffee. I followed the recipe from here. I made this Cuban coffee for myself and liked how frothy and sweet the coffee tasted. I have to make it for my coffee loving husband some time.
