The Best Breakfast Sandwich in the World

Ben made this breakfast sandwich for me the other morning and it came out so beautifully that I couldn't not photograph it before quickly devouring it. I saw a similar recipe on Pinterest (brie and fresh strawberries, grilled for breakfast on bread) and he saw a similar recipe in Bon Appetit that used a spicier compote, so if you're looking for variations, they're all over the web. For this gorgeous and totally delicious version, follow these steps. You'll need:

French toast
Slices of a french or sourdough loaf (we always prefer sourdough)
2 eggs
1/2 c. milk
A dash of cinnamon

Sandwich fixings
Your favorite jam (we used raspberry)
Triple cream cheese (we used delice de bourgogne)
Powdered sugar

For the french toast, whisk up the egg, milk, and cinnamon in a shallow dish and reserve on the side. Prepare the sandwich on two pieces of sourdough bread, spread the cheese on one side (a little goes a long way) and the jam on the other side. Dip the entire sandwich in the egg mixture, making sure to coat each side in a liberal amount. Cook it up in a frying pan with a good pat of butter in the pan, on low to medium heat (it takes terrible morning patience, just a warning) until the cheese is melted and the jam is starting to seep through. Sprinkle a bit of powdered sugar on the top and you've got a photo-shoot ready made. Voila - the best breakfast sandwich in the world.
