About the cook: Hello! I’m Chandni! Growing up, my Mom and I used to spend our free time together baking and cooking different types of vegetarian cuisines from all over the world. (That’s right, I’ve been a vegetarian my ENTIRE life!). Even though I’m a data analyst by day, I’ll always be a food enthusiast by night.
About the dish: This Brie and Fig jam stuffed French Toast is a delicious breakfast. The rich and creamy goat brie cheese I found at Trader Joe’s compliments the sweet fig jam on cinnamon bread. I love how the melted brie oozes out the sides of the French Toast sandwich. The best part is that this takes less than 30 minutes to make! Top the French Toast with honey, fig jam, and powdered sugar and enjoy!
