Overnight Blueberry French Toast

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Munchkin Mama

A very easy, great-tasting casserole for your family or breakfast guests. I suggest serving it with maple syrup and fresh fruit and/or sausage for a complete meal. Plan ahead- this needs to sit overnight. Adapted from the One Armed Chef cookbook.

Fabulous recipe in taste & soo easy to prepare. I used frozen BB cuz they were cheaper. I added cinnamon to the egg mixture as did other reviwers. Left out the nuts cus I didn't have any. I Cooked it for about 40 minutes, but middle peices could've been a little more done. The smell was devine while baking, when I removed it from the oven the bread was so puffy, it was beautiful. We both enjoyed this dish & it will be repeated in our home. Thanks for posting.
