Blueberry Breakfast Sandwich

Blueberries are incredibly good for you.  Unfortunately, I'm not a big fan of plain ol' blueberries, and I need to jazz them up if I'm going to eat them.  I enjoy them in muffins, pancakes, waffles, and in this awesome breakfast sandwich!  I make this sandwich with strawberry cream cheese, but you could easily substitute cinnamon cream cheese - or even plain cream cheese!  Because this sandwich is so "pretty" in its coloring, it's easy to get my little girl to eat it as well.  ;)   I used frozen blueberries for this recipe, but fresh would probably be just as delicious!

  • 2 slices Texas toast (or other thick bread)
  • 2 wedges strawberry cream cheese (like the kind by Laughing Cow)
  • 1/4 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine

Pan Insert to Use:  Base Unit

Servings:  1

1. Preheat grill. If using the Xpress Platinum, preheat at setting 2.
2. Spritz pan with non-stick spray.
3. If blueberries are frozen, thaw them in the microwave.
4. Spread each slice of Texas toast with 1 wedge of strawberry cream cheese.
5. Place blueberries on 1 slice of bread and close sandwich.

6. Spread butter/margarine on the outside of the sandwich - about 1 tablespoon per side.

7. Place in grill and close cover.  Cook for 2-3 minutes, flip, cook other side for 2-3 minutes.
8. Let cool slightly before eating - the cream cheese will be HOT!
