Mock Danish - Probably won't make it to Southern Living Magazine

Here' s what goes in it. Most recipes I have seen say use one large egg, but I only had mediums this week, so I used two. That is about 2 ounces of cream cheese, softened in the microwave.
So, you soften the cream cheese, add the egg, beat it together with a fork, then add 1/2 tsp vanilla and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Add two packets of splenda or 1 tablespoon of the granular splenda. Mix well.
This is what it looks like once you get it mixed together. Not too bad, so far. Microwave on high in 20-30 second intervals until set in the middle.

It sort of looks like grey oatmeal. Not the most appetizing sight, but since the name makes you think of a delicious danish, one can overlook the less that appealing visual.

The verdict? It was ok, but of course, it is NOT a danish and in no way resembles one. If I had to say, it is a bit more like French toast. In fact, if I had some sugar-free maple syrup, that would probably be pretty good on it. I might try it again when the family has pancakes and I am feeling left out, but I doubt this will be one that I go to as a staple meal. Maybe with some blueberries??
