Blueberry Stuffed French Toast
List of Ingredients
I got this off of a board where my friend Jan posted it!! Looks so good!!!!
1 loaf (14 oz.) french bread (plain)
4 oz. cream cheese
2 cups, divided (1 cup each) blueberries, fresh or frozen
8 eggs, beaten
1-1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove crust from bread; cut into 1-inch cubes (makes about 10 cups). Cut cream cheese into small cubes (makes about 1 cup). Grease a 9 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Place half of the bread cubes in the dish. Sprinkle cream cheese cubes and 1 cup of the blueberries over the bread. Top with remaining bread cubes and blueberries. In a bowl, combine eggs, milk, maple syrup and butter. Carefully pour over bread mixture. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour, covering with aluminum foil if edges brown too much. To serve, cut into squares. Accompany with additional maple syrup, if desired.
