Blueberry French Toast

November 25th, 2010
The family has just finished with the traditional Thanksgiving meal.  The house is very quiet.  Everyone is scattering to places to rest, but being the faithful blogger that I am, I have settled with my computer to give you a recipe.  We are staying with our DIL Kristen’s family near DC.  Everyone is having a great time and Darla, her Mom, has been cooking some fabulous meals.  This morning we had steel cut oats with brown sugar and apples that were cooked overnight in the crockpot.  This sustained us on our Turkey Trot 5K run and 2K walk for charity.

Yesterday we had this scumptious blueberry French toast for breakfast.  It is easy to assemble and great drizzled with maple syrup or blueberry syrup.  She served it with sausage on the side.  This is a perfect company breakfast casserole.
1 loaf Pepperidge Farms Cinnamon Bread cubed
1 cup blueberries
6 eggs
3 cups half & half
1 tsp. vanilla
Combine bread and blueberries in a 9 x 12 casserole dish that has been sprayed with Pam.  Whisk together the eggs, half & half and vanilla and pour over bread.  Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes to one hour.
Tomorrow we are going to spend the day at the Smithsonian and the Capitol.  Kristen’s brother is a Sous Chef at a popular DC restaurant and we will be treated to a special dinner tomorrow night.  I plan to take picture.  Stay tuned for that and Julia Child’s kitchen!

    I popped in just to see if my diligently dutiful blogger friend would post a message to her “fans.” I was rewarded by that scrumptious looking blueberry French toast recipe. Our son is here for Thanksgiving,and I had run through my “special breakfast” recipes when I came upon this. Thanks to you, Penny, and to Darla. Tomorrow morning blueberry French toast it is! I can’t wait to see Julia’s kitchen and hear about the vibes it transmits. Glad you’re having such a great time. Love, Lyla
