Ingredients

  • 24 slices day-old French bread (1/2 inch thick)
  • 1 package (8 ounces) PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, cubed
  • 2/3 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream

  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups egg substitute
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar

Directions

  • Place 12 slices of bread in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. In a blender or food processor, combine cream cheese, milk, sour cream, yogurt, syrup, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add egg substitute; cover and process until smooth.
  • Pour half of the egg mixture over bread; sprinkle with blueberries. Top with the remaining bread and egg mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
