Our most-requested dish, this golden brown custard is stuffed with fresh peaches and blueberries. The toast has a crunchy outer crust and soft custard center. My own caramel sauce provides a sinful start to the day.
My 13-year-old daughter and her friends asked for French toast at a sleepover, but we were out of bread. I used muffins instead, and they loved it. Double or triple this recipe for a holiday brunch. —Bonnie Geavaras-Bootz, Scottsdale, Arizona
