I made this for the first time with my daughter on Mother's Day. I think it is a great recipe for any breakfast where you wish to indulge. Very easy, quick and versatile to your taste. Berries, nuts, and bread can be changed to your favorites. Have fun and enjoy!

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Stir the cream cheese, almonds, brown sugar, and lemon juice together in a bowl until the mixture is soft and thoroughly combined; spread over one side of each bread slice. Place 1/4 of the blueberries onto a bread slice; press down on the berries to keep them from rolling off. Top the blueberries with a cream cheese-spread slice. Repeat 3 more times with remaining berries to make 4 blueberry sandwiches.

  • Beat the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon together in a bowl until blended. Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-low heat.

  • Dip each blueberry sandwich into the egg mixture on both sides; fry in the prepared skillet until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.

I have made this for many years only using texas toast. Just slice horizontally part way thru the slice of bread and put your cream cheese and fruit in side. Wonderful. Read More

Really good breakfast. The only things I would change would be to use less cream cheese (way too much for our likings) and use a different bread so that it wasn't so soggy. Overall really good and glad we tried something new! My husband I were pleased. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Good but there's too much cream cheese. Next time I will use half the amount of cream cheese but still use 2 T. brown sugar since it wasn't sweet enough for my kids' taste. Read More

I cut this down to one serving but otherwise made this exactly as stated. This was absolutely delicious! It's not overly sweet. I served this with whipped cream and extra almonds and blueberries. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

Because it was a sandwich egg did not soak all the way through the bread so the bread was kind of dry on the inside. Read More

Very nice but I make some alterations to meet my preferences. I don't like a lot of filling so I get 2 extra "sandwiches" out of this recipe. Also one more egg and less milk in the dipping mixture. The almonds and lemon juice are an important and delicious part! Read More

To get rid of the richness of the cream cheese try using Mascarpone cheese instead.. it is similar in texture but has a milder taste and isn't so heavy. Delicious! Read More

The cream cheese mixture was a little too much but I'm sure it would be great with just a little less. Whole wheat bread holds up well and the taste tones down the sweetness a bit. Read More
