French Toast with Brie and Figs

This is one of those simple delicacies that's so easy to come up with on your own and just hits the spot for a mid-afternoon snack. For a bit of decadence, serve with Sunset Vodka Ice Tea.

  • 2 eggs or 1 egg and 1/4 cup milk
  • italian seasoning (or mix dried rosemary, thyme, oregano)
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • red pepper flakes [optional]
  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil and/or butter
  • Brie cheese or other quick-melting cheese (sliced swiss). If you are using brie, only remove the rind if it is hard.
  • 1 fig, not quite fully ripe, thinly sliced
  • pancake syrup [optional]

  • Break egg(s) into a small mixing bowl, add milk [if using], italian seasoning, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Beat until the mixture is slightly fluffy.
  • Pour mixture into a shallow, wide dish or cake pan.
  • Dip both slices of bread into the mixture, flip slices over, then leave for a couple of minutes until entire mixture has soaked into the bread. While waiting, put cooking oil or butter in a wide frying pan (non-stick is less fuss) and set stove to medium high. (Keep in mind that butter burns very fast. It's best to use a combination of oil and butter.)
  • When the pan is hot, about 1 minute, rotate the pan so that the oil/butter spreads out.
  • Gently place each slice into the pan. It takes about 2-3 minutes for the bottom sides to brown and form a light crust.
  • Now flip each slice over. Place the brie or swiss immediately on top of one of the slices while it is still hot.
  • When the bottom sides of the bread are browned, turn off the heat.
  • Place the sliced fig on top of the cheese, then cover with the other slice.

Cut the sandwich in quarters and serve with a drink.
