My favorite meal is breakfast!
I like to start my day right. This brunch was for my husband’s
birthday but it was also because we had my nice, her husband,
and her two adorable kids over for the weekend…..
A perfect excuse for a brunch!
I have decided to start a new category called “Because of YOU!”
I love blogging and I love being creative and doing my
own thing. I also believe in giving credit where credit is due.
There are many things in blog-world that simply are
great as is and I want to try them without any
changes, but then I also want to share the experience
on my blog as my own.
So this is my first “Because of YOU!” post
Thank you to
(Real Mom Kitchen is a new fave of mine. Take some time
to check her blog out she is amazing!)
I have to say this was an amazing breakfast dish.
I was afraid that it may come off as too sweet but it
was perfect, even the syrup was not that sicky-sweet, that
some syrups turn out to be.
- French Toast:12 slices bread, cut into cubes (french or Texas toast work well)1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, cut in cubes1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)12 large eggs 1/3 cup maple syrup2 cups milk (I use 1 cup milk and 1 cup cream)
- Arrange 1/2 of the bread cubes in a greased 9 x 13 pan.
- Sprinkle cream cheese cubes and blueberries evenly over the bread cubes.
- Top with remaining bread cubes.
- Mix together eggs, milk, and syrup.
- Pour over bread cubes and cover pan with foil. Let chill in refrigerator overnight.
- Bake covered with foil at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
- Remove the foil and bake for another 30 minutes or until fluffy and golden.
- Top with sauce. Serves 8.
When I made the syrup I made a double batch to
add to my Very Vanilla Cake layered thank you gifts
featured here. What I did not tell you is that as we
finished the Very Vanilla cake off we poured the left over
syrup on the cake too. Wow what a great combo!
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 Tablespoon butter
Cook water, sugar, and cornstarch until thickened.
Stir in blueberries and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add butter and stir until melted.
Not only was this simple and fast but costs about an 8th
of what you would pay in the store!
(sorry for the poor photo quality it was about 3 a.m.)
I paired this scrumptious casserole with sausage patties,
Scrambles eggs and a simple fruit salad! Add a little
Mother Nature and a simple table cloth and you
feel like you are at a bed and breakfast in the country!
Isn’t it funny how small touches like a table cloth or
eating outside makes life wonderful!
