I made this for Christmas morning and everyone loved it. I baked it in a lasagna size dish & 12 slices of French bread fit perfect. I could not fit even 10 slices in a 9 x 13 pan. I used 6 eggs & 3/4 cup of milk and 5 cups of blueberries.

Very tasty. Easy. However, I used a combo of blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and mostly raspberries, and it was so soupy. I also used cinnamon toast and was able to get only six slices in the pan. I would like to try this idea again with some changes (drain some of the juice? use peaches or apples?). Again, really delicious and a nice change-up from the usual make-the-day-ahead breakfast.

We made this for our son's special birthday breakfast. I loved that this recipe was lower in fat, only 3 TBSP. for the whole thing! the frech toast part was simple and a good overall texture.When making the blueberry mixture i will rduce the sugar by half next time. or use 1/4 cup brown sugar or honey.also, i'm inspired by the success of this french toast and fruit combination, and next time i will make it with an apple cinnamon mixture.Also, maybe my french bread was too big, but, i could not get 10 slices of bread into my 13x 9 pan.When the recipe called for us to ' pour into a large shallow baking dish'. I assumed this meant a 13 x 9, but the bread did not fit. so i did a 15x 2 x 11 jelly roll pan and, added one more egg and 1/4 cup of milk to my mixture. it worked out nicely.

I made this for Christmas morning and it was a hit! The only thing I changed, instead of using just blueberries I bought the mixed frozen berries which were blackberries, strawberries and blueberries....wonderful! Everyone thought I slaved and slaved over this dish, it was impressive and easy to do.
