Good morning, friends! It's finally Friday & we are all sorts of excited. We started our morning off with the most delicious breakfast & I couldn't wait to share. You know we love a good hot breakfast over here, we will choose waffles or pancakes over cereal any day of the week. I have been wanting to try an overnight bake for a while now, and finally found a couple recipes that I thought would be easy enough to try. I decided to try an overnight blueberry french toast bake, which of course I love because I can prep it after the girls go to bed. I threw this one together late last night using stuff we had on hand & am happy to report that everyone loved it this morning, even baby Claire! Saving this recipe for next time we have overnight guests or a good brunch to plan! ;)
1 loaf french or sourdough bread
2 cups milk
2 tbsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup of fresh blueberries
Grease a small glass baking dish, and line with sliced bread. Layer the bread so it overlaps just slightly, but not so much that it doesn't cook evenly. In a small bowl, mix together egg, milk, vanilla & cinnamon. Pour over bread evenly. Sprinkle blueberries on top, cover & place in fridge overnight.
In the morning, remove cover & place in oven at 350 degrees (I have read multiple recipes that say you do not need to preheat, so I didn't) and bake for 40 minutes. Best enjoyed with a little bit of butter, maple syrup & powdered sugar.
Wishing you all a happy weekend!! XO
