Blueberry Stuffed French Toast

Today’s recipe is a family favorite and has been for many years.   It is often requested for birthday breakfasts, and since today is my oldest son’s 20th birthday, I made it once again! As you can tell from my printed copy of the recipe, it has been used many times!

It was given to me from a church friend who made it for a ladies’ brunch.  It is a great way to use those remaining blueberries sitting in your freezer!  You do need to think ahead with this one, though, since it sits overnight in the fridge before you bake it.

6 slices bread, cubed into bite-sized pieces

8 0z cold cream cheese, cut into bite-sized pieces

1 c. blueberries, fresh or frozen

6 eggs

1/3 c. maple-flavored syrup

1 c. milk

1/4 tsp. dry mustard

1/4 tsp. salt

Spray a 9×9 pan.  Layer the bread cubes, cheese, and blueberries in the pan. Whisk together the milk, eggs, syrup, dry mustard and salt. Pour evenly over the bread layers.  Cover with foil and refrigerate over night.  In the morning put covered dish in the cold oven; start oven to 350 degrees.  Bake for 35 minutes and remove cover. Bake 30 more minutes or until a knife comes out clean.  Serve with blueberry syrup. Add a side of bacon or sausage and garnish with a slice of orange.  Enjoy!

BLUEBERRY SYRUP

1 c. sugar

2 tbsp. cornstarch

1 c. water

1 c. blueberries, fresh or frozen

1 tbsp. butter

Mix sugar and cornstarch in saucepan. Add water and stir. Cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in blueberries and simmer until berries burst, stirring occasionally.  Add butter and stir until melted.

  1. We just tried this on Sunday. Delicious! Thanks! Although, next time, I need to start the syrup earlier – we nearly missed Sunday School…
