Baked Blueberry French Toast.

Last weekend I needed to find a breakfast recipe that could supply enough tastiness for at least 11 people and I discovered a gem! I should tell you the majority of it needs to be prepared the night before, but the morning of your breakfast all you’ll need to do is pop it in the oven which is a plus!

What you’ll need:

2 medium sized loaves of french bread, 4 oz cream cheese, 1 cup and 1 tablespoon milk, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1 cup blueberries, 2 tsp vanilla extract, 5 eggs, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and 1/4 maple syrup

DSC_0772(Mix cream cheese, 1 tb of milk, and powdered sugar together to form a thick mixture)

DSC_0774(Pour that mixture over the pan of bread crumbs and sprinkle the majority of your blueberries on top. Place the remaining bread crumbs on top of the blueberries)

DSC_0786(The next morning bake the french toast at 375 degress with the foil ON for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for 30 additional minutes)

DSC_0789(Serve with either maple syrup or a blueberry simple syrup which can be made easily as well)

Looking back on it, I would have added a touch more cinnamon and nutmeg for a little extra kick. If you are looking for something that will go over well for a large group, this is a great recipe to try!
