Blueberry French Toast For Cozy Mornings

(NAPSI)-On days when the sky is gray and cold winds blow, brighten the morning with the comforting flavors of "Blueberry French Toast Sandwich." The recipe is super fast and easy to make with a few convenient ingredients that go together to create a warm breakfast or brunch entrée.

You'll find fresh blueberries in the produce aisle of your supermarket right now. They come to us directly from South America, where the climate is perfect for growing blueberries while it's winter here in the northern hemisphere. This year, expect to see more fresh winter blueberries than ever--and excellent quality--thanks to ideal weather conditions in Chile.

Fresh blueberries add much more to winter breakfasts than a cheerful reminder of blue summer skies. A whole cup of blueberries has just 80 calories and provides the fiber, vitamin C and manganese our bodies need.

1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened

1½ tablespoons confectioners' sugar

1 package (about 12 ounces) frozen French toast (6 slices)
