My in-laws own and operate an orchard, so we have an abundance of fruit fresh from the trees. This dish includes fresh apples, apple jelly and applesauce all in one recipe. It's a warm, hearty breakfast for busy days.

"This yummy French toast casserole is a breeze to whip up the night before a busy morning," assures Cindy Steffen of Cedarburg, Wisconsin. "My family loves the richness it gets from cream cheese and maple syrup."
I like that this breakfast entree can be prepared ahead of time. Since you can use fresh or frozen blueberries, it's great anytime of year. It makes a warm, rich start to any morning. —Suzanne Strocsher, Bothell, Washington
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
"If you like blueberries and pecans, you'll love this take on a breakfast favorite," writes Melissa Winona of Salt Lake City, Utah. "I assemble it the night before. Then I bake it in the morning to surprise my roommates, who finish it in one sitting."
