Prepare this delicious breakfast dish the night before, then pop it in the oven in the morning. Serve with orange wedges or warm spiced mixed fruit.

Ingredients:

  • 8 to 9 thick (1 to 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 to 3/4 cup dried blueberries
  • 3 cups milk (1% or 2% milk is fine)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • maple syrup

Preparation:

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

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

Heat oven to 325°.

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 to 55 minutes, or until browned and set. Use a sharp knife to cut around each slice of bread then lift out with a spatula. Serve with maple syrup and orange wedges or fresh berries, or serve with warm spiced mixed fruit.
Serves 6 to 8.
