What You'll Need
- 4 slices of white bread (milk bread is preferred)
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tbsp of sugar (add more or less for desired sweetness)
- 8 to 10 Omakase Berries (depending on bread surface area)
How to Make It
- Add the sugar to the heavy whipping cream. Using a hand held mixer or whisk, whip the heavy cream until it forms stiff peaks.
- Cut the crusts of two slices of bread. Spread the whipped cream on a slice of bread (½ inch thick).
- Wash and prep the berries. Dry thoroughly and cut/rip off the stems.
- Arrange the berries on top of the whipped cream so that it reveals your desired design when cut.
- Spread more whipped cream on top of the berries to fill in the gaps. Top with another slice of bread.
- Tightly wrap the sando in plastic wrap and let it sit in the fridge for at least 25 minutes.
- Cut the sando in half or quarters while remembering the placement of your design. Serve immediately.
