Blueberry French Toast Bake

You wouldn’t know if from the recipes I post, but my family is HUGE on breakfast!  I don’t do many on here because I’m just to tired in the morning to get organized and take pictures.  One year I had a New Year’s resolution of NO cereal for the year.  It was tough to start, but it became easier to have healthy and quick breakfasts with little planning.  This blueberry French toast bake is great.  You can make it the night before and throw it in the oven when you wake up.

This is the perfect make ahead breakfast for any special occasion, weekend, or regular weekday. Get the recipe for this blueberry French toast bake here!
