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!

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

Loved this! I had never baked French toast before, but it came out excellent. I used half the milk and egg the recipe called for though. The sauce was really good, but I might leave out the cloves next time since e smell of them was really strong. Taste was good, though.

You have to try this! It is excellent. Make sure you use texas toast, as the recipe calls for-I think it really makes a difference. I thought the blueberry sauce was great, but any sauce would work. Next time I may try a banana/caramel or strawberry sauce.
