    • In a wide-bottom bowl, toss egg, egg whites, vanilla, milk and cinnamon lightly with a fork until scrambled.
    • Place blueberries in a microwave-safe bowl and cook on high for 4 minutes. Will cook down to about 1 1/2 cups.
    • Coat the heated griddle with nonstick cooking spray.
    • Dip one bread slice at a time in egg mixture, just until each side is completely coated, and place on hot griddle.
