I made this for breakfast today, and it was so yummy and simple, I thought I'd pass it on.
For one serving you'll need:
2 pieces of bread
1/4 cup (or so) of milk
1/2 tsp (or so) of vanilla
a bit of sweetener (I use about 1/2 tsp of agave necter)
Cream cheese (amount is up to you)
Fruit spread - jam or jelly (your favorite flavor)
A bit of olive oil
Combine the egg, milk, vanilla and sweetener in a large bowl and mix well.
Place frying pan on stove and turn on to low heat.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spread cream cheese on one piece of bread, and fruitspread on another. Be liberal with both. Put pieces together like a sandwich. Soak "sandwich" well in the egg mixture, but not so long that it becomes soggy and falls apart. (30 secs to 1 minute per side, depending on how firm/dry the bread is).
Put oil in frying pan, then place "sandwich" in pan. Flip over when bottom is light brown.
When both sides are brown, use spatula to transfer "sandwich" from frying pan to oven. Bake for about 8 minutes.
Remove from oven, spread with butter, powdered sugar or maple syrup, and enjoy!
