A different breakfast casserole

On the first Sunday of each month, our Sunday School class has a "pot luck breakfast". There are a lot of great dishes, and always a variety of breakfast casseroles. I decided to try something different yesterday and found this great casserole I thought I'd share!

Baked French Toast

Ingredients:
8-9 thick (1-1 1/2 inches) slices of Italian Bread
6 large eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 - 3/4 cup blueberries
3 cups milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter, melted
maple syrup

Arrange bread slices in a lightly greased or sprayed 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle blueberries over the slices.

In a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, vanilla and milk. Whisk to blend well. Pour the egg misture evenly over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Heat oven to 325 degrees.

Uncover the baking dish. Sprinkle each slice of bread with a few teaspoons of brown sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Drizzle with the melted butter. Bake, uncovered for 50-55 minutes, or until browned and set. Serve with maple syrup.

I actually cut each slice in half so that the portions were a little smaller. It rises up so beautifully and was so delicious!

Enjoy!
