In a bowl, blend cottage cheese and vanilla. Spread on one side of bread. Scatter blueberries on top of cottage cheese. Cover with the other slice of bread, making a sandwich. In a shallow bowl, lightly whip egg whites. Mix in skim milk and cinnamon. Carefully dip both sides of sandwich in egg whites, holding the sandwich together. Spray pan lightly with non-stick spray and heat pan over medium heat. When warm, place sandwich in and when browned on both sides, remove from pan. Slice in half.
