Have I got the ultimate breakfast sandwich for you today!
I’ll be travelling to Paris soon, so this sandwich is a homage to this beautiful city and its incredible culinary scene.
It is very common to have a platter of fruits and cheeses as a typical french dessert or mid-day snack. I personally favor that combination and am particularly fond of figs & nectarines.
this sandwich will work great with every semi-soft fruit though, and if you’ll choose to layer it up with a little smoked & finely sliced meat (such as Jamon Serrano or Prosciutto), peppery greens and a generous slather of honey-butter, you will sure have a great head-start for your day.
Fig, Brie & Jamón Croissant
2 Butter croissants
2 figs, finely sliced
6 slices of Camembert/Brie/blue cheese
4 slices Jamon Serrano/Prosciutto
1 small bunch Arugula leaves
2 tablespoons/1.5 oz/40 grams salted butter, at room temperature
1/2 tablespoon honey
Mix together the butter and honey. Slice the croissants lengthwise and spread a generous layer of the honey butter on both sides. Arrange the cheese slices diagonally on one side, layer with the figs, Arugula and finish with the Jamon/Prosciutto slices.
