Did I hear someone say yum?!  Oh that was me. 😉  Well, this recipe will make you say yum, especially if you love blueberries. This is similar to another recipe I have shared, Upside-Down French Toast, which is made with apples.  You prepare everything the night before and then bake it in the morning.  Both recipes are great for breakfast, but would also make a nice dinner.  You can serve the blueberry french toast with some maple syrup or if you want to send this recipe up over the top, make the blueberry syrup, which is easy to make.

If you are looking for other blueberry recipes, don’t forget our Blueberry Pound Cake and Crumb-Topped Blueberry Cake recipes, both are delicious!
