Ingredients

  • 2 cups mixed fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and/or blackberries)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup lowfat ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup strawberry preserves
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup (5 fl.-oz. can) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Fat Free Milk
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 12 slices (about 3/4-inch-thick) French bread, divided
  • Vegetable oil, butter or margarine
  • Powdered sugar (optional)
  • Maple syrup, heated (optional)

Directions

COMBINE berries and granulated sugar in small bowl. Combine ricotta cheese and preserves in separate small bowl; mix well. Combine eggs, evaporated milk, brown sugar and vanilla extract in pie plate or shallow bowl; mix well.

SPREAD ricotta-preserve mixture evenly over 6 bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices to form sandwiches.
