Blueberry French Toast Bake

If you make anything this weekend, please let it be this Blueberry French Toast Bake. Its phenomenal. It’s sweet from the blueberries, creamy from the cream cheese, fluffy & dense!

I love to cook, I mean LOVE. But my husband and I have an unspoken arrangement that just works for us. I make lunch and dinner, and he’s incharge of breakfast. I don’t know when or why that started, but it did, and we all love it this way! I’ve never  been much of a breakfast person so maybe that has something to do with it. But let me tell you, if I could have this EVERY morning, I would definitely be a breakfast person!

I made this a few weeks ago and it was a HUGE hit! My husband has since then requested it twice AND declared it as our new ‘Christmas morning’ breakfast! That’s major!

I like to prepare this the day before I plan to enjoy it. It gives everything a chance to get to know each other! haha!

And be sure to make the sauce! I went back and forth about whether to make a sauce, assuming the bake would be sweet enough without it. Just do it! It won’t need much but boy oh boy does it finish this dish off nicely!
