    In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and milk. Dip the bottom side of each sandwich into the egg mixture, then transfer to a hot grill pan. Dip the remaining two pieces of bread into the egg mixture, then place egg-side up on top of the sandwich. Cover the grill pan and allow to cook over medium heat until the brie begins to melt and the bottom bread is golden brown. Flip to the other side, cover, and cook until bottom is golden brown.

    Remove sandwiches from the grill pan. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve and eat like a sandwich, or slice in half and drizzle with more maple syrup for a stuffed-french-toast kind of a meal.

    ALTERNATE PREPARATION: Cook your sandwiches in a sandwich maker or panini maker. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.
