This is a great recipe for that "special breakfast". I used frozen blueberries as fresh are not yet in season. Make sure you let it set (I would suggest 10-15 minutes) or it will not look pretty when you serve it. This is one french toast that doesn't need any of that bottled syrup.
Thanks for the great recipe.Due to the ice storm I decided to try something new. This recipe is the ticket. I was not able to get out for fresh berries so I used Blueberry pie filling and omitted the sugars. Perfect for a cold morning. I did take more baking time. Next time I will take it out of the frig. and let sit at room temp. for awhile. Definetly a keeper!
Awesome recipe! The only changes I made were reducing the amount of Blueberries down to four cups & using Blueberry cream cheese which made more sense to me. It was so delicious & very filling. Doesn't take much to really fill you up. This is a restaurant quality dish. Powdered sugar topping isn't necessary. No syrup needed either. It's perfect as is. Best recipe in my arsenal. You must try this!!!!!
