Blueberry Crunch Breakfast Bake
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min.
I made this on Christmas morning with plenty of time for the bread to soak up the eggs and milk. What a disappointment - I followed the recipe exactly, but used chopped, toasted pecans instead of walnuts. It was a waste of money and good ingredients - no one liked it. Won't be making this one again!
I prepped this the night before in a ceramic dish. I somehow ended up not having enough slices of bread to top off every “sandwich”. I baked it as directed, but found it needed a little extra time. I ended up with a bake that was a little done around the edges and bottom. Serving it was an issue as it stuck to the bottom of the dish. Flavor wise, my husband and I liked it. The bread was still a little mushy for my preference, but otherwise good. I wonder if I would have had these issues had I made this the morning of, instead of the night before.
Made this for the first time and it was delicious. I left off the walnuts because I am not a fan of them. It was easy to make and I froze some, can’t wait to see how it tastes coming out of the freezer.
This is now our traditional Christmas breakfast. Can be prepared the day before.
This was really good and didn't take forever like some breakfast casseroles. My daughter didn't think it was sweet enough. Everyone else liked it though. Great Mother's Day breakfast.
Delicious! I also added some cinnamon and nutmeg to the egg mixture! I will also change out the fruit sometimes, since not everyone in my family likes blueberries!
SOOOO good! made following the suggestions of AZGrndMom the first time..only change was sliced almonds bc thats what i had on hand. Next time, I intended on making the exact same way...HOWEVER....i accidentally used almond extract instead of vanilla.....and you know what???? Equally as great with a slightly different flavor. My husband prefers this as dessert with ice cream but is super happy with it as a breakfast treat as well!
Really good recipe, family approved. They say I can make it any time, lol. I did make a few changes. I never make french toast without spices so I added 1/2 tsp each of cinnamon and nutmeg. Also in step 2 when it has you pour half of the mixture over the first layer I dipped them in the mixture and let them stay long enough to soak it in. Then I put some Blueberries on top of them when I put them in the pan. I did the same on the next layer, dipping them, then putting them on top of the ones in the pan, then I poured the remaining mixture over top. I followed the rest of the recipe but I think next time I'll put some cinnamon in the topping to and make it 3 cups of blueberries. We Love blueberries. I'll be making this again for sure.
My husband loves anything with blueberries, and he loved this! It looked beautiful and tasted amazing. I sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top before baking. Next time I might try putting blueberries on top of bread layers before topping with streusel and nuts, so that the berries are incorporated into the dish more. Easy, delicious-definitely will make again!
I love this recipe - it was so easy and I did use fresh blueberries, they are in season but I did use pecans cause that is what I had on hand. It is the best when it is warm out of the oven, but still delicious when used the next day.
