Do you love sandwiches? We are sandwich people here at Mom Does Reviews. And one of our #BTS specialties is making great sandwiches with fruit. We make them with bananas, kiwi, apples, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, pomegranate — almost any kind of fruit you can think of, we’ll put it on a sandwich!
In this back to school lunch feature, we’re going to show you how to make a special sandwich that is perfectly sweet for your little sweetheart. We’re taking our favorite stuffed french toast filling, and turning it into a school lunch favorite with our Sweetened Berry Cream Cheese Sandwich!

As you can imagine, this sandwich has everything you love about your favorite hot breakfast, in a cold lunch sandwich. Every kid at the lunch table is going to be begging for a trade, just so they can try it too!
“No way! I’m not sharing!”
As you can see, we really packed this sandwich full of blueberries, but you can use any type of berry you like. Another variation might be to mix up the rows with different types of berries. Maybe try alternating blueberry and raspberries, or raspberry and blackberries!
Use whatever berry (or berries) your child likes!

Another great thing about this sandwich is it freezes very well. Make all of your child’s school lunch sandwiches in advance, wrap them in wax paper and seal in a freezer-safe bag, then place them in the freezer. While packing your child’s lunch, grab a sandwich from the freezer and toss it in their lunchbox! The sandwich will be defrosted by lunchtime!

Combine softened cream cheese and granulated sugar until sugar is completely incorporated. Spread cream cheese mixture across one side of bread slices (all slices should have a layer of sweetened cream cheese).
