Oven-Baked Blueberry French Toast

Ah yes, summer is finally here! And with summer comes sweet, juicy blueberries! Kick start your summer weekend with this yummy recipe for Oven-Baked Blueberry French Toast. (Recipe from Cripple Creek Bed & Breakfast Cabins)

  • 2 (8oz) packages of cream cheese (room temp)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • Day old french bread, cut 3/4 inch thick
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • Syrup for serving

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.

Beat together the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon with a mixer until well blended. Then add the eggs (one at a time). Next add the milk.

Arrange the bread in the baking dish and spread the blueberries on top (little people do well with this step!)

Next, pour the cream cheese mixture over the bread. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes before baking.

Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown. Serve this yummy dish drizzled with maple syrup. Now that's how I like to start my weekend!!
