Tis a gift to be simple, tis a gift to eat brie

…taking you back to 6th grade chorus with this title.

I haven’t posted any breakfast eats in a while, and I’m not sure why, because breakfast is my most favorite part of the day.  In fact, its the only reason I get out of bed some mornings.  Last week I strayed from my usual oatmeal or smoothie in a bowl, and tried some different things with some organic Bosc pears, courtesy of TJ’s.

I’ve also been dreaming of brie lately, but never while at the grocery store, which was also remedied on a recent trip to TJ’s, mecca of all cheap delicious healthy food.  Eating brie solo is an acquired taste, but everyone can appreciate brie if it is paired properly.  Brie’s best friend, in my opinion is honey.  For a not so short time period in grad school, I regularly ate a brie, honey, and green apple sandwich on a daily basis.  Here is where the pear comes in.

Instead of green apple, I sliced up a small Bosc pear and put it on a brie smeared whole wheat wrap, drizzled with honey

Then I folded it over and browned it in a cast iron pan.  Cut it in half and ate it with a dollop of plain yogurt.  See the honey oozing out the side?

Crisping the wrap is an absolute must if you try this.  It kind of seals all the ingredients together.  Nothing is quite like Brie + something a little sweet.  In this case, the pear and honey were an excellent compliment.  This is a really simple and quick breakfast or lunch and was a nice change from the usual.
