One of the first breakfast foods I perfected as a kid was making french toast. It was super easy. Scramble some eggs, dip the toast, cook it in a hot pan. BOOM! Breakfast is served. I was so proud of myself for making such a decadent meal. Between pancakes, waffles, crepes and french toast I was always infatuated with french toast. My kids, though, they like my pancakes and chocolate chip waffles. So, needless to say, I don’t get to make french toast in my house often, unless I am making it for myself. Which isn’t a bad thing, except I really don’t let myself indulge in french toast everyday.
My hubby, he has a sweet tooth, especially for breakfast. And not in a good way. He’s happy with a slice of pound cake, a danish, a doughnut or cookies with his morning coffee.
“Really, dear?” I ask. “What kind of example are you setting for the kids?”
“What? What’s wrong with that?” replies the man who never had to go on a diet his whole entire life.
AARGH!!!!! I usually just throw my arms up in the air declaring defeat. After 14 years of marriage, I recognize when it’s futile to fight the fight.
My typical breakfast is simple: yogurt, fruit and granola or a protein bar or eggs. But today, I’m sharing with you what I would love to eat every morning, my secret love: french toast. And for those of you who have family and friends that love french toast for breakfast, this is the recipe for you. I personally like it moist on the inside and crunchy outside. So that’s why this baked french toast is upright in a loaf pan, instead of flat in a pyrex. And since I used pasteurized eggs from Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs™, I don’t have to worry about salmonella.
It will feed about 7 or 8, depending on how many pieces of toast and blueberries you can cram into your loaf pan.
And did I mention this thing is jam packed with blueberries? A whole lotta blueberries, as my post title says it?! I also drizzled this bad boy with some quick blueberry syrup, too, because I really can’t get enough of those blue jewels.
Disclosure: As I am part of the Darling Dozen, I did receive a stipend from Safest Choice Eggs™ to develop a breakfast recipe using their product. The story I have written is all true, and the opinions are truly mine. If I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t blog about it!
