Breakfast for supper is a favorite in our house.

Most of the time it's along the usual lines of morning fare — grits, eggs, toast, maybe pancakes or cereal.

But these Blueberry French Toast Sandwiches certainly kick things up a notch, and would be delightful for breakfast, brunch or dinner.

It's your basic French toast with a yummy spread of blueberry sandwiched between two slices.

Now who's going to say no to that, no matter what time of day it is?
