This Baked Blueberry French Toast is simple to prepare & is perfect to feed a hungry crowd.

I love that you can quickly whisk together the eggs, milk, maple & cinnamon & soak your bread. Top with blueberries. Spread out the ingredients on a sheet pan and Voila! in 30 minutes have a delicious homemade meal…

I had no patience to soak the bread over night in the egg batter. I wanted french toast at the very moment I thought about it.

Not sure how it would turn out different if you did soak it longer.

Typically recipes tell you to use day old bread & soak it overnight. Well in this case my bread was fresh & it wanted some quick love.

Marla,
I like crispy edges on my French toast (the better to soak in butter and syrup) and I appreciate how the whole slice, not just the tops, gets crisped in this version.
Thanks!

I love the idea of this baked french toast (not the normal baked french toast casserole) but what a great way to make a lot of french toast at once. And adding blueberries makes this breakfast look so amazing! I wish I was eating it right now!

Can you use fresh blueberries?

25 Carmen February 8, 2014 at 11:48 am

This looks so great. Do you think I could dip the bread and then freeze it so I could have “fresh”, easy toast everytime I want?
