Recipe by Rita~
Made the day before just sprinkle on topping and place in oven. Hop in the shower and breakfast is ready. A great way to start any day. Baked french toast filled with cheese and blueberries. One of my RSC recipes That I didn't enter. Go figure!

Delicious! I used regular sugar and french bread, as that's what I had on hand... it was amazing. I will definitely make it again, but will probably reserve it for holidays or birthdays. Scrumptious!
