I must say that these were absolutely delicious and so easy. Essentially it is a fried egg on a tortilla with some cheese and I have no problem with that. I was making only one at a time as my roommate but they looked so good that we couldn't wait until there was one for each of us and each took a fork and shared. We stayed in the kitchen standing up, cooking and eating until we were so full of huevos we fell down. Almost.

I should also mention that this recipe set me off on one of my semantics tirades. Here it is: what differentiates marinara sauce from any of the other tomato sauces out there? Really there are so many, a bolognese, spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce and I think pomodoro is one too. So I will not answer what the rest are but the impression that I got after my vast research was that marinara is a meat-free tomato sauce with lots of basil that is cooked relatively quickly. Any other takers to tackle this dilemma?
I did really like this though, as simple as it was and you shall soon see just how little effort this required. The goat cheese gets melty and slightly brown on top and though I will eat goat cheese in any setting, drowned in marinara is preferable. It may seem like it keeps it is still just a slab of goat cheese in sauce but underneath it is gooey and becomes one with the marinara.

All semantics aside though, this was a very satisfying sandwich that felt slightly healthy. I'm in love actually.

The original recipe called for whole wheat bread crumbs which would be great but the cheapest bread crumbs were the ones that I got. They were just some panko but it made me kind of sad that the healthiest options are consistently the most expensive. yet people believe that with nutritional education alone we can solve obesity problems. It's just a weird and depressing situation the world is in.

One downside to making banana pancakes? That damn Jack Johnson song that one simply cannot escape. So while I'm sure that everyone is humming it now. I will not mention it again for the duration of this post. It is not fair that such an innocent food is now forever doomed to be associated with a song. I will end by saying that these pancakes are not a gimmick, they are actually delicious in their own right.
