Servings 4 people
- 8 slices whole wheat bread
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt or cream cheese
- 1/4 cup blueberry preserves
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 4 tablespoons bread crumbs whole wheat, panko or regular all work
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 4 teaspoons butter
- maple syrup + blueberries to serve
Spread each slice of bread with 1/2 tablespoon cream cheese or Greek yogurt. Spread 4 of these prepared slices with 1 tablespoon blueberry preserves each. Sandwich each blueberry-topped slice together with a plain cream cheese topped slice, sides with filling facing each other. Push down the edges to seal in the filling.
Whisk the eggs together with the milk in a shallow dish. A soup plate works great for this. Mix the breadcrumbs with the sugar and cinnamon in a large dish, I like to use a shallow casserole dish.
Dip each sandwich into the egg mixture first, including the sides. Then coat with the spiced breadcrumbs all around.
Melt 1 teaspoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the French toast on both sides, until evenly browned, about 3-4 minutes per side. Serve with maple syrup and fresh blueberries.
