Reviews for Quicker Blueberry French Toast
"Can't miss awesome breakfast treat even though I didn't have blueberry preserves. Can substitute berries or other fruit jam."
"Delicious and easy!! Liked by all!"
"HOLY COW!! This was awesome. I've been making this every weekend for the last 2 months. This is the first choice when I ask what they want for breakfast. I started putting some blueberries on the cream cheese as well. Easy to make for 2 as well."
"Made this for breakfast this weekend and it was amazing!!!!!"
"Wow! These were so easy and delicious! I didn't have blueberry preserves, so I just added a few crushed blueberries to the cream cheese. Thank you for sharing!!"
"This was such a delicious treat! The french bread insures that it does not get soggy and holds up great!!! Superb"
"I love cream cheese and I love blueberries so I couldn't wait to try this recipe. It's even better than it sounds! A dollop of whipped cream on top and I would call this dessert. Yummy!!"
"Fabulous, special occasion breakfast! I cut the amount of the cream cheese and maple syrup for the filling in half, as the recipe makes much more filling than needed, and spread the bread with the preserves, so I probably used more than 2 Tablespoons, everything else was according to the recipe. A very special treat...delicious!"
"Made this for Mothers Day. Had 3 mothers for breakfast and they all were throughly delighted."
"By the way...switched out the blueberries for strawberries and it worked just as well!"
