Baked Blueberry French Toast

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

    So good, like a bread pudding. You can vary the fruit, vary the bread. I used hard 2 day old cinnamon rolls, real eggs, regular cream cheese, 1/2 milk-1/2 cream, doubled the cinnamon, vanilla yogurt. Left out the fruit, nutmeg & powdered sugar at the end. Cut up pecans & sprinkled on top along with cinnasugar before refrigerating. It was delicious, I might add a can of pie filling in a pinch, but will do with fresh fruit next time & there will be a next time. Loved the convenience & ease in the a.m. The whole thing puffed up in the oven & smelled amazing. Can't wait for leftovers.

    This is one lovely recipe! I served it for a brunch and it got lots of good compliments. :-) I did not use low fat ingredients so the calories were definitely higher!It's also great for my brother as he is hypoglycemic and can't have very much sugar. I will be forwarding this to my sisters and definitely making it again!

    This is excellent. People, if you want know how to reduce a recipe, it's normally common sense; you shouldn't need taste of home to tell you for every recipe. However, if you're always confused, you can google it.

    Not as good as I had hoped. Wouldn't make again.

    I'm a little confused by all the calls for a recipe reducer. Virtually all of the ingredients are divisible by 2 (to serve 6) or 3 (to serve 4). If cutting in half, use an 8x8 pan. If cutting in thirds, try a loaf pan. The only question then would be appropriate cooking time for the smaller pans. I would recommend checking it at 30 mins for a loaf pan, and 35-40 minutes for the 8x8.

    Great recipe for a large brunch. But, I'd also like a version that would serve 4. Nice hint about lemon, I'll try some lemon zest next time too. I do like that you can use frozen berries. It makes this a year-round choice.

    I love baked french toast. Did add some lemon zest as I like the flavor of lemon and blueberries together. I have to use my math skills to reduce the number of servings. I wish Taste of Home would post a recipe reducer formula the way some food websites do to make it easier for smaller families to make smaller batches. Thank you.
