Special breakfast

I whipped this up last night, and the boys and I enjoyed it so much for breakfast this morning. It was devoured...


French Toast:

• 12 slices bread, cut into cubes
• 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, cut in cubes

• 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

• 12 large eggs

• 1/3 cup maple syrup

• 2 cups milk (I use 1 cup milk and 1 cup cream)

Blueberry sauce:

• 1 cup sugar

• 1 cup water

• 2 Tablespoons cornstarch

• 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

• 1 Tablespoon butter

1. Arrange 1/2 of the bread cubes in a greased 9 x 13 pan.

2. Sprinkle cream cheese cubes and blueberries evenly over the bread cubes.

3. Top with remaining bread cubes.

4. Mix together eggs, milk, and syrup.

5. Pour over bread cubes and cover pan with foil. Let chill in refrigerator overnight.

6. Bake covered with foil at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 30 minutes or until fluffy and golden. Top with sauce. Serves 8.

Sauce: Cook water, sugar, and cornstarch until thickened. Stir in blueberries and simmer for 10 minutes. Add butter and stir until melted. Serve over the french toast.
