I know, another recipe displaying my weakness for the bread and cheese in France. It's a good thing my mind has had the enthusiasm for those workout apps on the iPad too. Although, I was throughly annoyed when Doug gloated that he had lost 10 pounds since living here. He clearly was born with a different metabolism than me. We have more or less been eating the same thing and I'm pretty sure I've gained a few. Anyway, life is short, so here is my delicious but not-so-healthy recipe...
- 2 thick slices of brioche
- a few slices of brie cheese
- 1 Tbsp of fig jam
- a few sprigs of thyme, remove the leaves and discard the stems
1 pat of butter
Spread the brie on one slice of brioche, the fig jam on the other. Melt the butter in a pan with the thyme leaves. Grill the sandwich in the melted thyme butter over low heat until the cheese is warm and melted in the center.
