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.

"Actually, we make this recipe often. It came from our Bed and Breakfast in Hannibal, Missouri. We were featured in the Country magazine in 2010 and this was one that Taste of Home publishers chose to feature. Thank you all for the compliments. We're glad you love it as much as we and our guests do!! Judy & Norm Reagan, Innkeepers"
