We visited Costa Rica this past summer and every morning they gave us a newsletter under our door with local recipes in it. You may have tried my Gallo Pinto from that same vacation? It’s also very good and typically served for breakfast with eggs.
This is a moist and flavorful, yet dense bread and is great with coffee in the morning, especially Costa Rican coffee. Enjoy for breakfast, or anytime.
