Simply a spin on stuffed french toast, this sandwich is sure to make anyone smile in awe for breakfast.
For Mei, who LOVES blueberries and eats probably close to six pints a week, on average, this was heaven!
The husband unit’s jaw dropped when he saw this creation, saying something about “fancy” and “rich”….
It made it taste even better!
We love making big breakfasts, although we don’t often have the energy to do it as often as we would like (daily… if we had a cook), when the occasion warrants it, we go all out!
This time, the husband unit didn’t have to go into work until much later and we were all up and not immediately starving so we made french toast with the last of a rustic country loaf that we had lying around from the weekend.
So here is the “recipe,” it really is just a matter of putting simple ingredients together.
First, get your cream cheese out and let it soften a bit. If you would like to whip it with some sugar, so that it is not as tart, just add as much sugar as you like and I would go with powdered sugar so that your cream cheese is not grainy tasting.
Then make your favorite french toast! Our recipe is simply one egg beaten into about 1-1/2 C of milk with a touch of vanilla extract. Cooked in a frying pan with a sprinkling of cinnamon on each side until it is cripsy and golden brown. You will need two slices of french toast for this sandwich genius.
Smear as much cream cheese on one slice of french toast – in my case, it was more like dabbing it on and kind of smearing it flat-ish with a spoon.
Rinse a pint of blueberries, shaking off as much excess water as you can. Press blueberries into the cream cheese, making sure to get as many blueberries covering the cream cheese as possible. Top with the other slice of french toast.
Drizzle maple syrup (or your favorite syrup, possibly blueberry syrup?) to taste over your sandwich then lightly dust with powdered sugar.
ENJOY! This is impossible not to like, as you can do with with whatever berries or fruit you like, and if you are like me, I put together a little side dish full of more blueberries that I tossed on the fork for the bites that didnt seem to have any or hardly any blueberries on it… the perfect breakfast! My husband had his with a side of scrambled eggs and I just had the sandwich. One sandwich was certainly enough for me! It was just decadent enough to keep me smiling all morning long!
