Pan de Sal Breakfasts


There's something about pan de sal that pulls those little hands into the bread bin. This little roll of bread easily becomes a favorite of little eaters.

My son was first introduced to it when we went home to Manila for a visit. It became his bread of choice. He nibbled on it while he played and went about his daily business. You don't see it in this image but he was playing with his Thomas the Train whilst munching.

The soft, warm handy little roll is definitely a must-try when you visit the Philippines. Small neighborhood bakeries bake new batches in the morning for breakfast and in the afternoon for merienda (afternoon snack). Lovely with some organic peanut butter, fruit jelly or coconut jam. Also works well with coffee. And some Thomas the Train, apparently.

What a lovely photo!

I miss pan de sal... the ones from the neighborhood bakeries, not the ones mass-produced and sold at the malls. :)

@Buckeroomama - I know the feeling - and the difference. The thing, too, is that the ones made at home never tastes the same...
