Overnite Fruity French Toast

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by LAURIE

I'm an early riser (most days) so I love to wake everyone with yummy smells coming from the kitchen. This is no exception. My DS and DBF like this with blueberries, DD#3 and I prefer cherries. Combinations are endless, think I will try a peach/blueberry combo or strawberries next! Prep time does not include overnite chilling.

I cut the recipe down to 2 ounces of bread, used 2 eggs,a splash of milk,and used 1 pint of fresh blueberries. The blueberries were very sweet so the sugar I just barely sprinkled it on. I baked it for 30 minutes.I did use a very small amount of baking powder but I don`t think it`s necessary. I`ve made french toast oven style before and never had to use it.I really enjoyed this. French toast is my all time favorite breakfast.Thanks Laurie for posting this.
