Blueberry French Toast Bake

blueberry french toast bake

The bread became very soft after soaking all night!

I don’t like to waste ANY food! I do whatever I can to use food to it’s best and fullest! We had part of a French loaf for the other day that had grown quite hard. I thought I’d try to make a French toast bake, even though it wasn’t soft! It was great! Although we did not eat this for dinner today, it would make a lovely “light” dinner!

This looks really good! I was just thinking about having “breakfast for dinner” tonight – I’ll have to keep this in mind for another time.

Yummy! I made some homemade rolls this past week but not all of them got used…this is a perfect way to make good use of those leftovers!

PS I have an award for you at my recipe blog :)

This dish looks so yummy. Is it decent calorie-wise?


Erin April 24, 2009 at 1:48 pm

No idea on the calories?!?!?

I made this (or something close) and it was great. I want to plan prepped meals for when my baby is due; do you think this would work if I prepped it and froze it to then thaw and bake?

You would have to bake it first and then thaw/reheat. :)
