1 cup fresh or frozen bluberries, thawed and drained on paper towels
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
½ cup apricot preserves
2/3 cup half-and-half
2 Tbsp. honey
2 tsp. vanilla extract
12 slices thick white bread
¼ cup (½ stick) butter, divided
¾ cup vanilla yogurt, optional
Preheat oven to 300°F.
Combine apricots, blueberries and sugar in a small bowl. Combine cream cheese and preserve in a medium microwave-safe bowl and heat on high for 30-40 seconds to soften cream cheese and slightly melt preserves. Whisk until well blended.
Whisk eggs until well blended. Add half-and-half, honey and vanilla; mix well. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over the bread slices and top with remaings slices. Dip each into egg mixture, turning to coat well.
Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook half the sandwiches until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Place on an ovenproof platter and keep warm in the oven. Repeat with remaining butter and sandwhices. Top each serving with fruit and yogurt, if using.
