Blueberry-Cinnamon Campfire Bread
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min. + standing
- 1 loaf (1 pound) cinnamon-raisin bread
- 6 large eggs
- 1 cup 2% milk or half-and-half cream
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
- 2 cups fresh blueberries, divided
- Prepare campfire or grill for low heat. Arrange bread slices on a greased double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 24x18 in.). Bring foil up the sides, leaving the top open. Whisk eggs, milk, syrup and vanilla. Pour over bread; sprinkle with nuts and 1 cup blueberries. Fold edges over top, crimping to seal.
- Place on a grill grate over campfire or grill until eggs are cooked through, 30-40 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 10 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining blueberries; serve with additional maple syrup if desired.

I followed the recipe, and cooked it on a gas grill over low hear. It turned out to be a soggy mess, but the bottom still managed to get stuck to the foil, and the foil was liberally greased. We through it away.

I've made these oh hot campfire coals and in the oven. It was a hit both times. I especially love the cooked and fresh blueberries. It's definitely a keeper!

This recipe is a keeper. However, I used a greased 13x9x2" baking dish and used the egg mixture and bread slices in the prepared dish. I'd used 1-1/2 cups 2% milk with the eggs, syrup and vanilla and since I didn't have regular blueberries, I used a can of blueberry pie filling (21-oz.) for the dish. I'd topped the bread with half the filling, sprinkled the toasted nuts over the filling, then spread with remaining filling before I baked it at 350o F. for 45 minutes. I sampled a serving and it was REALLY a tasty dish! delowenstein
