I had some Brie and prosciutto leftover from New Year's Eve dinner and only one thing on my mind - creating a spinoff of my new favorite breakfast sandwich, the Egg Sandwich with Goat Cheese, Scallions, and Prosciutto.
I didn't change much from Bridget's original creation, just swapped the goat cheese for the Brie. I had to leave out the scallions because we didn't have any. I usually have at least one lurking in my produce drawer but alas, not this time. Definitely add it, though. That slight onion-y flavor would be perfect.
I didn't do a side-by-side comparison but I think I might like the Brie version slightly better than the goat cheese version. I love Brie. I also really liked the sourdough bread, slightly toasted, in place of the huge rolls I used last time. I enjoyed these two mornings in a row and wished I had more prosciutto so I could make them again.
Egg Sandwich with Brie and Prosciutto
Inspired by The Way the Cookie Crumbles
4 scallions, white and green parts, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon milk
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 ounces Brie, softened
4 slices sourdough bread, cut in half and lightly toasted
4 ounces sliced prosciutto
In a medium bowl whisk the eggs, minced scallion, salt, and milk until a few large bubbles form.
Heat the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and lower the heat to medium-low. After about a minute, gently stir the eggs. After about another minute they should be starting to set; use a large spatula to flip sections of egg so the other side can set as well. Turn off the heat but don’t move the pan. Residual heat from the pan will finish cooking the eggs without drying the out while you build the sandwiches.
Spread each half of each slice of bread with some of the Brie. The heat from the bread will help melt the cheese slightly. Layer on 1/4 of the eggs, then 1/4 of the sliced prosciutto. Top with another slice of bread and serve immediately.
