“A couple of our favorites to try at home.”
Stuffed Blueberry French Toast
1/2 loaf of bread (white or wheat but
challah works the best)
4 oz. (1/2 8 oz.pkg.) cream cheese
1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
¾ cup half and half
1-3/4 cup skim milk
1/3 cup real maple syrup
Break bread into pieces (including crusts) and scatter 2/3 of it in pan.
Pinch off half inch pieces of cream cheese and scatter over bread.
Then scatter blueberries over bread and cream cheese.
Top with remaining bread. Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan. Mix eggs, half and half, skim milk, and maple syrup. Pour over bread mixture. If necessary push bread down into the liquid but don’t flatten completely.
Cover and refrigerate, overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
