Figs in a Blanket

2012-12-20

Stuff dried figs, dried apricots and nuts in between sliced of bread dipped in egg for a sweet breakfast sandwich.

Ingredients:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried figs, stems removed
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 1/2-inch-thick slices white sandwich bread
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more as needed
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar

Method:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with foil. Whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla and salt in a shallow dish.

Combine the dried figs, dried apricots, nuts, granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and toss to combine.

Dip 4 of the bread slices in the egg mixture, then transfer to a clean surface. Top each slice with one-quarter of the fruit-nut mixture, then dip the remaining bread slices in the egg mixture and press on top to make 4 sandwiches.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook the sandwiches until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side, adding more butter to the skillet as needed. Transfer the sandwiches to the prepared baking sheet and bake until puffy and cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, wipe out the skillet. Add the brown sugar, the remaining 4 tablespoons butter and 3 tablespoons water; cook over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Cut each sandwich in half and drizzle with the brown sugar sauce.

    ….then does that also mean that right now we are taking an Open Book quiz ?

    *smiles quizzically*

    And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falls off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree. Isaiah 34:4

    This is quite a step beyond “Newton’s falling apple”…. But do you gather from “Isaiah’s falling fig” ?

    What sort of Fig~ures have we been seeing in this ancient scroll of the Heavens ?

    I ask this for David, who met the King of Glory in spirit and truth, boldly declared….

    “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handiwork.” Psalms 19:1

    “And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.” Psalms 50:6

    The heavens declare his righteousness, and ALL THE PEOPLE see his glory. Psalms 97:6

    Beloved, what do you see when you look up at night….?

    More stars than you can number…. or the Seed of the Innumerable ONE ?

    BONUS Q: “Who is this King of glory?….

    bonus a: ….The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.” Psalms 24:10
    And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Genesis 26:4

    Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but AS OF ONE, And to your seed, which IS CHRIST. Galatians 3:16

    But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
    Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, by (grace ye are saved;)
    And has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places IN CHRIST Jesus: Ephesians 2:4-6

    Much love to you and ALL : )
    p.s.

    Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. 2Peter 1:20

    21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

    He KNEW what He was talking about and We need HIM to understand all He said….after all He is the Eternal Spirit of Holiness : )

    The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. Proverbs 9:10
    Deof: Thanks for the answer….but now that you mention it…the comparison doesn’t stop there….. : )

    Daniel 12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.

    Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

    much love to you…. we have been made to sit with CHRIST in heavenly places : )

    So, a while ago, I thought it would be great to paint my room light bubblegum pink and lime green. The colors don’t bother me, it’s just hard to find things to go with it. So all of my furniture is white. I have a pink bedspread with a fluffy green quilt on it. It’s so girly. My whole room is girly! Super super Girly! I just got a boyfriend… And I really don’t want him to have to awkwardly sit in a room that simply screams, “Hey! I’m 6!” how do I make it more… Teenagery? And what other colors besides brown will match my walls? Any suggestions of blanket, sheet, pillowcase, and quilt colors? Thanks!(:
