The sponge-like nature of French toast gives it that “special occasion” feel, though why hold it back when it’s one of the easiest ways to get egg and bread together in the morning? Bring it on with a tangy blueberry sauce. —Debbie Johnson, Centertown, Missouri

"Coming from someone that isn't a huge fan of blueberries- This is wonderful! The texture of the french toast is just amazing. It's classic french toast, but I left mine in a bit longer and it got an ever so slight crunch to the tops. That made it even better.

For the sauce, the only thing I changed was the orange juice concentrate. I just squeezed half an orange instead.
One tip my grandma taught me was that if you add nutmeg, cinnamon, or any other spice to eggs & milk, always mix them with the Vanilla FIRST. Mix them together as best as you can, THEN add the eggs & milk. It keeps it from separating & just floating along the top of the mixture.
This seems as though it could be used with any fruit. Next time I'm going to try this with peaches. Enjoy!"

"Loved this! I had never baked French toast before, but it came out excellent. I used half the milk and egg the recipe called for though. The sauce was really good, but I might leave out the cloves next time since e smell of them was really strong. Taste was good, though."

"You have to try this! It is excellent. Make sure you use texas toast, as the recipe calls for-I think it really makes a difference. I thought the blueberry sauce was great, but any sauce would work. Next time I may try a banana/caramel or strawberry sauce."
