4
oz (half 8-oz package) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel), softened
1/2
cup raspberry preserves
1
cup fat-free egg product
1
cup fat-free (skim) milk
1
tablespoon sugar
1/4
teaspoon salt
Sauce
1
bag (10 oz) Cascadian Farm® frozen organic raspberries, thawed
1/4

Spread remaining bread slices with preserves; place over cream cheese to make 12 sandwiches. Arrange in baking dish, pressing together if necessary to fit.
  2. In medium bowl, beat egg product, milk, 1 tablespoon sugar and the salt with wire whisk until blended. Pour over bread in dish. Let stand 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.

Place strainer over medium bowl; pour raspberry mixture into strainer. Press mixture with back of spoon through strainer to remove seeds; discard seeds. Serve sauce over French toast.
