Baked Blueberry French Toast

Updated: Mar 28, 2019


Surprise your family this weekend with this special French toast. Much of the work is done the night before, and it tastes great leftover too!

1 loaf French bread

5 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

3 cups half & half

1 teaspoon vanilla

Dash of salt

3 cups frozen or fresh blueberries

1½ cups pecans, optional

1/3 cup butter

¾ cup brown sugar

Cut bread into 1-inch cubes (approximately 8 cups), place in a large bowl, and set aside. In the bowl of a standing mixer, combine eggs, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, and whip for 10 minutes until airy and light in color. Stir in half & half, vanilla and salt. Pour egg mixture over bread, stirring to combine. Cover, and refrigerate overnight.

Heat oven to 325°F. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Mix 1 cup of blueberries into the bread mixture, and spread into prepared baking pan. Sprinkle remaining blueberries and pecans (if desired) on top.

In a saucepan, heat butter and brown sugar until thick and just barely boiling. Pour mixture over top of bread.

Bake for 1 hour until cooked through. Let rest before serving; this dish tastes best at room temperature.
