Sometimes it doesn’t take a whole lot of work to make something really decadent. I love those times.
Especially for parents of little ones, it can be far too easy to slip into a routine of boring, practical choices. But when a special breakfast can be as easy to make as the same ol’ peanut butter toast, why not indulge yourself?
I hesitate to even call this a recipe because it’s so simple. Your bread is toasted, cheese is spread on it and then jam is put on top. Most grocery stores carry goat cheese and I would hazard a guess that if your store has an “international” food section, they will probably have fig jam. If not, you can get a similar flavor by substituting cream cheese for goat cheese and another jam for the fig. I’d suggest a berry or marmalade. I’m pretty sure grape would be painfully bad.
Try it out and let me know what you think. The idea actually came from a fig and goat cheese bruchetta appetizer that I had at a fancy-pants restaurant, but even G is a fan!
