Reviews for Lighter Blueberry French Toast
"This is the first time I've ever made French toast, and I have to say it was really, really good! I liked the extra-thick slices of French bread, and the blueberry sauce on the bottom was amazing! I sprinkled a little extra cinnamon on top as I served each portion, and it was perfect! I would definitely make it again. Very filling and satisfying with just the perfect amount of sweetness. I even used frozen blueberries, and it was still so good. Yum!"
"Yum! Got rave reviews!~ Theresa"
"This was so good! I made the sauce in a separate pan-same ingredients just cooked it on the stove. Same with the french toast. I was concerned about sogginess, plus I have one child that dislikes blueberries so this gave her an opportunity to eat the french toast with syrup. I also used 4 eggs in place of the egg substitute and about half the amount of blueberries. So delicious!"
"This was fantastic and I'm not a french toast fan (there's something about soggy bread that turns me off). We store our bread in the freezer and I did not thaw the loaf before using it. I think that helped it be a little less soggy. I had some extra pieces of bread that would not fit in the pan, so I cooked them on the stovetop and reserved some of the blueberry syrup from the pan for leftovers tomorrow."
"wow says it all"
"This was easy and delicious. I made it for Father's Day and it was a big hit with everyone. I used blackberries instead of blueberries because I had some in the freezer and they were very good."
"This recipe was a big hit with my son and daughter-in-law when they visited. They are both great cooks, so I'm always looking for delicious breakfast food for them."
"This is fabulous! Everyone loved it. I didn't have egg substitute on hand and used regular eggs, so not quite as healthy, but quite delicious (and easy to make)"
