Baked French Toast with Blueberry Sauce

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

    OH my gosh, the blueberry sauce is off the hook! My 78 year-old mother-in-law was staying with us, and she went crazy over the blueberry sauce, too. So so so easy to make, as well. As for the two-star review from "khegeman" who didn't care for the "nutmeg" taste, it is not nutmeg, it's cloves (maybe that is where they went wrong), which when combined with the orange gives that phenomenal Christmas morning flavor, perfect for a cozy holiday breakfast with some bacon and fresh greapefruit.....oh my goodness, I've gotta go! It's out of this world!

    Coming from someone that isn't a huge fan of blueberries- This is wonderful! The texture of the french toast is just amazing. It's classic french toast, but I left mine in a bit longer and it got an ever so slight crunch to the tops. That made it even better.For the sauce, the only thing I changed was the orange juice concentrate. I just squeezed half an orange instead.One tip my grandma taught me was that if you add nutmeg, cinnamon, or any other spice to eggs & milk, always mix them with the Vanilla FIRST. Mix them together as best as you can, THEN add the eggs & milk. It keeps it from separating & just floating along the top of the mixture.This seems as though it could be used with any fruit. Next time I'm going to try this with peaches. Enjoy!

    This was a simple, yet delicious recipe. The cloves made it plenty strong for our tastes, but overall it was great! Its a keeper!

    I saw this recipe in the magazine and had to make it right away. I made it for my family the next morning and everyone loved it. It was very easy to make and delicious.

    It tasted like toast with blueberry jam. Skip the work and make toast!
