Good morning and happy Sunday! I have an easy, delicious, and healthy recipe to share!
But first, last night in a nutshell.
It started with a glass of wine…
Followed by cutting myself while chopping an onion…
But I kept going because I wanted to jazz up my dinner!
Obviously dessert was needed…
And of course a snack with extra wine…
Then bed at 11:00pm, followed by waking up at 4:00am with the completely rational fear that because I’m home alone, there is a murderer in the closet. Time to remember every horror movie and story I’ve ever seen/heard.
Go out to the living room at 4:00am to turn on the TV because obviously the closet murderer can’t get me unless I’m in the bedroom.
Go back to bed at 5:00am and wake up at 8:00am, wondering what year it is.
Realize it’s Sunday, shuffle out to the kitchen to make coffee and…
Healthy “Blueberry Cheesecake” Stuffed French Toast
- Two slices of whole wheat bread
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 2 tablespoons cream cheese (I used Wegman’s honey nut)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla almond milk
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Cinnamon to taste
In a skillet or small frying pan, melt one tablespoon of butter over medium heat. In a small plate or shallow bowl, beat one egg and mix in vanilla almond milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Defrost blueberries in a separate small bowl for 1 minute.
Dip one side of each slice of bread into the egg mix. On the opposite side of each slice of bread, spread 1 tablespoon of cream cheese and half of the blueberries. Place the two “stuffed” sides of the bread together to make a sandwich. Cook the sandwich in the skillet or frying pan until gold brown, about 3 minutes per side.
