French Toast Bake

Karen, a beautiful woman up in the wilds of Nebraska, posted a recipe a few days ago on her blog Condiment Kitchen. The recipe is for Blueberry French Toast Bake. I was thinking of making it this past weekend but got lazy and didn't do it. I'm hoping to be a little more motivated this weekend.

In any case, here's the recipe and let me know what you think if you try it out before I do!

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 6 eggs
  • 10 slices french bread, cut into 1" cubes
  • 3 oz. pkg. cream cheese, diced
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (if frozen, do not thaw)
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Generously grease 13x9" glass baking dish. Beat flour, milk, 2 Tbsp. sugar, vanilla and eggs in large bowl until smooth. Stir in bread cubes until well coated, then pour bread mixture into prepared pan.

Top evenly with cream cheese cubes and blueberries. In small bowl, combine 2 Tbsp. sugar, cinnamon, and nuts and toss to mix. Sprinkle over blueberries and cream cheese. Cover casserole tightly and refrigerate up to 24 hours. {P]Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and bake casserole, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes until golden. (Serves 8)

That sounds really good! I can't eat french toast because of the high egg content, but I'd try this recipe if I could eat it. I'd try it if I knew someone who would eat it for me. LOL.

Sounds like a good recipe for a brunch. Maybe sometime when you're in the mountains on a frosty morning!
