Blueberry French Toast Bake

(8 servings)

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 large eggs
  • 10 slices (1-inch thick) French bread - cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 or 4 ounces cream cheese - cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • powdered sugar
  • blueberry or maple syrup
This one got rave reviews from some guests I had over. It was great that I could pop it in the oven for an effortless morning. All the work was done the night before. The bread had a moist, custard-like feel and the blueberries and nuts contrasted wonderfully with the cream cheese. I opted to use chopped pecans for my nuts. All in all, this breakfast was a big success. (Recipe submitted in 2002. It was tested and photographed in November 2013.)
