I’m excited to share one of my mom’s recipes with you today!  She is a great cook and I learned much of my confidence in the kitchen from watching her cook for many years.  We have fun cooking together now, it’s pretty cool.

This recipe is delicious, just perfect for a special brunch or holiday breakfast.  It is simple and can be put together the night before and then baked the next morning.  It’s not very healthy, but sometimes there are occasions to indulge, this recipe would be great for one of those times!

DON’T SKIP THE SAUCE, consider yourself warned, it makes this dish, remember don’t skip the sauce!  It is so simple to make and acts similar to “syrup” on this french toast.

I love breakfast, and I LOVE this special morning treat, I hope you do too!

  • 12 slices good quality white bread
  • 8oz. cream cheese
  • 3 cups frozen or fresh blueberries, divided
  • 12 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbs. cornstarch
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 Tbs. butter

Baked Blueberry French Toast

Grease a 9×13 inch pan.

Cut all 12 slices of bread into 1 inch cubes (I like to remove the crust for a more “uniform look” but this isn’t necessary at all!)  Cover the bottom of the prepared pan evenly with the bread cubes.  Cut the block of cream cheese into cubes and sprinkle evenly over the bread.  Finally, sprinkle 1 cup blueberries over the top of the cream cheese cubes.

In a medium bowl beat together the eggs, milk, and syrup.  Pour the egg mixture over the top of the ingredients in the pan.

At this point I cover this dish and place it in the refrigerator until the next morning, but it could also be baked right away, it’s up to you!

Preheat the oven to 350.  When the oven reaches temperature place the FOIL COVERED pan in the oven and bake for 40 minutes.

Remove the foil from the french toast, increase the oven temp to 375 and bake 35 more minutes, or until lightly browned and the eggs are cooked through.

Blueberry Sauce:  Don’t skip the sauce!  It’s a MUST!  While the french toast is baking, mix 1 cup sugar, cornstarch and water in a medium sauce pan.  Place the pan over medium heat and stir in 2 cups of blueberries and 1 tablespoon of butter.  Stir frequently and heat until thickened.  Serve over the top of each serving of french toast!  Yum!!!
