Ogura toast is a popular breakfast dish particularly in the area where I grew up.
Many cafes called “kissa-ten” which is an old-styled coffee shop serve breakfast (for free!) if you order a cup of coffee during the “morning” hour, and if you’re lucky, you may get ogura toast.
This time I decided to use French baguette to make mini ogura toasts.
The major ingredients are some type of bread (toasted), butter, and sweet red beans (adzuki).
I used to use store-bought sweet red beans, but now I cook my own, because homemade one tastes so much better (and cheaper).
Other than that, you can add anything you like.
This time, my selections were…
– Kinako (roasted soy bean powder)
– Black Sesame
Surprisingly, the wild card (cayenne) was a winner!
Kinako was also my favorite.
Well, let’s just say they were all very good!
I intentionally made each small, so that I can enjoy all of them.
I would say, they were two-bite size.
Which one would you like to try?
