Delicious! I used a low fat cream cheese to which I'd added a little honey and cinnamon, raspberry jam and several whole raspberries. When the sandwich was well-browned, I drizzled it with cream and sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar. YUM! :) Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

I made these for breakfast on Valentine's Day for my wife. She was thrilled that I was making breakfast for her, and even more so when she found out what I was making! We both started eating, and the oowwws and ahhhhhs coming from her lips said it all! She loved them, and so did I! I used Strawberry preserves and low fat cream cheese with excellent results! Thanks for sharing!
