Overnight Blueberry French Toast

A blog not to miss is Chef in Training! I was immediately drawn to the Overnight Blueberry French Toast recipe after seeing the gorgeous and yummy pics Nikki had on her blog.  I tried it out and can I say it is OH- SO-GOOOOD!!  It was a BIG hit at my house. Mr Techie went for the kill and attacked it once it came out of the oven.  This dish is a wonderful addition to any breakfast or brunch!  It's a great recipe to try for Father's Day!  Just remember to prepare it the night before...that is why  it is called Overnight Blueberry French Toast.
Besides this delicious Overnight Blueberry French Toast recipe, Nikki has recipes for Smores cookie bars, cookies and cream cupcakes, peach cobbler, and so much more.  Yup! As you can tell...I love sweets.  Not to worry...Nikki also has recipes for  chicken enchiladas, navajo tacos, chicken brocolli cassarole, and list goes on and on.  I already have some recipes lined up that I want to try out! You have to check out Chef in Training... you will be hooked!

French Toast:
  • 12 slices bread, cut into cubes (french or Texas toast work well.  I prefer Texas Toast.)
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, cut in cubes
  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 cups milk (I use 1 cup milk and 1 cup cream)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 Tablespoon butter

1.  Arrange 1/2 of the bread cubes in a greased 9 x 13 pan.
2. Sprinkle cream cheese cubes and blueberries evenly over the bread cubes.
3. Top with remaining bread cubes.
4. Mix together eggs, milk, and syrup.
5. Pour over bread cubes and cover pan with foil. Let chill in refrigerator overnight.
6. Bake covered with foil at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 30 minutes or until fluffy and golden. Top with sauce. Serves 8.
Sauce: Cook water, sugar, and cornstarch until thickened. Stir in blueberries and simmer for 10 minutes. Add butter and stir until melted. Serve over the french toast.
