  • brie in the rind
  • fig jam
  • 2 tbsp thyme fresh, stems removed
  • 1 pinch Maldon salt
  • 2 slices sourdough bread or other crusty bread


  • In a small bowl combine the thyme leaves and butter with a whisk, making sure the leaves are evenly distributed. Spread the butter evenly on all sides of the bread and toast all sides over medium heat, watching to not burn the thyme leaves.
  • Once the bread is toasted on both sides, spread the fig jam on one piece and cut 1/4 inch chunks of brie onto the other slice. Place the brie slice under the broiler until just melted. Make sure to keep an eye on the brie, things go from perfect to burnt quickly.
  • Assemble the sandwich and top with a pinch of flaky salt.
