Start with some day old french bread. I happened to have half a loaf that I made before a busy weekend of birthday parties, errands, and various running around. We weren't home to eat it, otherwise it wouldn't have been there. French bread doesn't last long around here.
Tear it up into bite sized chunks.
In the morning, preheat your oven to 350 and allow the french toast to sit on the counter top for 15-20 minutes to take some of the chill off before heading into the oven. Remove the plastic wrap (duh) and place the dish in the oven while you go take a shower.
Thirty to forty minutes later, you will have this splendid breakfast waiting for you.
Grab the biggest spoon you can find and scoop some onto a large plate. Drizzle with some warm maple syrup and enjoy!
Blueberry Cinnamon French Toast Casserole Recipe
1/2 loaf day old french bread
1 c. milk
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon1 c. blueberries
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Tear bread into bite sized pieces and add to the egg mixture. Toss bread in egg mixture to absorb the liquid. Transfer half the bread to a well-greased baking dish. Sprinkle with blueberries and top with the remaining bread. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes, depending on how dark and crispy you like the top.
