ingredients:

1 baguette (french stick-bread for the philistines out there)
1 wedge of Brie (or camembert… chevre might also work)
2-3 eggs, beaten
fresh orange juice
champagne
grand marnier
icing sugar
fresh fruit of your choice, sliced (strawberries and peaches work very well. raspberries are okay. pears would be lovely).
honey

beat up your eggs in a bowl. add ginger, and a splash each of orange juice and grand marnier. set aside.

slice the baguette on a bias. (that means on an angle) so you end up with long slices, roughly 1.5″ thick.

cut a slit lengthwise into the crust of each slice of bread. carefully stuff the bread with brie and whatever fruit you’re using.

soak the bread in the egg mixture, and sautee in butter until golden brown and delicious on all sides. serve with a drizzle of honey and a light sprinkling of icing sugar and cinnamon, or with a fruit compote of some sort.

drink Mimosas (champagne and orange juice) with this. bask in the adoration of your lover.
