I am Violet Beauregard... ;o) Willy Wonka anyone?
Ahhh, the beauty of fall... It only makes me want to eat more and more warm homemade breakfast. I first ate this Blueberry French Toast the first day of my new employment and fell in love. Needless to say, I had to snatch up the recipe and couldn't wait to make it! This long beautiful Labor Day weekend was the perfect way to start with this recipe, which I will post soon. Pumpkin pancakes are another fall favorite, and the recipe will be posted soon as well. Have a wonderful and safe Labor Day weekend everyone! :o)
Here is the recipe!
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/4 cup melted butter
12 slices of French bread (I ended up using 18, I has small slices)
1 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
Grease casserole dish with butter. Mix first three ingredients and put half of it in the bottom of a pan. Cover mixture with six slices of bread (or 9 like I did- truth be told, I used an 9x13 pan where I think my boss used a smaller one) either way, it worked! Sprinkle with half of the remaining sugar mixture and half of the blueberries over the bread. Beat eggs, milk and salt and pour evenly over the bread. Press down a bit, and here comes the hard part- REFRIGERATE OVERNIGHT! Yes, you have to wait to eat this wonderful breakfast... Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes. It says to serve with syrup on the side, but this is wonderful enough on it's own, up to you to use it or not! Enjoy!
