Blueberry French Toast Bake

Tonight I wanted to do breakfast but we were all getting tired of waffles and pancakes. I knew we hadn't done french toast in a while so I thought we could do this. However.....tonight was opening night for college football and there was a BYU game on tv. I didn't want to spend all night in the kitchen over a hot stove making french toast. So I decided to do a french toast bake. I also happened to have blueberries in the freezer. And here you go!!! Breakfast for dinner and a picnic in the living room watching BYU play Oklahoma.

Blueberry French Toast Bake
1 whole wheat french bread loaf, sliced and stale
8 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
big dash of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
1C blueberries

In bowl, whisk the milk, eggs, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Cut bread into 1/2 inch slices and spread on bottom of 8×8 baking dish or equivalent.

Pour egg mixture over bread. Let sit for 30 minutes so the bread can soak up the custard.

Preheat oven to 350. Sprinkle with blueberries. Bake 35-40 minutes, until golden brown on top and eggs have cooked through. (Mine cooked about 38 minutes to perfection!!!!)

2 of the 3 having fun watching football!
