    Serves: 4 

    • 225g cream cheese, softened
    • 3 tablespoons chopped almonds
    • 2 tablespoons light brown soft sugar
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
    • 8 slices bread
    • 110g blueberries, divided
    • 2 eggs
    • 175ml milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • cooking oil spray

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Stir the cream cheese, almonds, light brown soft 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.
    2. Beat the eggs, milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon together in a bowl until blended. Spray a frying pan with oil and heat over medium-low heat.
    3. Dip each blueberry sandwich into the egg mixture on both sides; fry in the prepared frying pan 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.  -  14 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  15 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!  -  21 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
