Fruit, Brie "N" Bread
This morning when I awoke I thought I want something really special that I had not had in a while. As I was drinking my coffee I thought why don't I look and see what is in the fridge. I wanted special, but also quick and simple. I saw that lovely piece of Brie, I also found a couple of beautiful pears and in the freezer I found some French Bread. I thought, OK I have the makings for a fantastic breakfast here. This is one of my favorite breakfasts actually and I wanted to share it with all of you. I love having this on a weekend morning. Maybe you can make it a special breakfast for yourself.
Simple & Satisfying Breakfast
1/2 pear sliced paper thin
* Fruit Fresh to keep pears from turning brown (sprinkle on the sliced pears).
1/4 teaspoon butter
1 1/2 teaspoons Honey
French bread or roll sliced (about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick)
* Note: Fruit Fresh can be found in the grocery store, usually with the canning supplies. It is used in jams, jellies or in any recipe you use fruit. It prevents the fruit from turning brown. You can also use lemon, but I feel in some cases lemon overpowers the taste of the fruit. Fruit Fresh has no taste.
Brie should be soft for spreading. Let it sit on the counter for about 1/2 hour until it is room temperature.
Add the 1/4 teaspoon of butter to a heated skillet (medium low) add sliced pears and toss until heated through, add honey and toss once more, then remove from heat. Plate and enjoy.
