From Taste of Home. This is a frequent birthday breakfast request by my DH. It's also a great breakfast recipe for overnight guests - it looks and tastes like you fussed, but since it is made ahead and chilled overnight, it's quite easy on the morning cook! Make the sauce the evening before and just reheat when ready to serve. With luscious blue berries inside and in a sauce, it's almost more like a dessert.

Really easy to make and the sauce is a nice touch to the dish! So much better than maple syrup! I used frozen blueberries and this dish turned out just fine with the frozen berries.
