So the least I can do is send them off with a hearty breakfast. Last night when we got home I put together this Blueberry French Toast Casserole. I make French Toast casseroles quite often but I usually start with cinnamon raisin bread as my base. The other day I had bought a French baguette and then forgot to make the crostini that was it's original purpose. Hence, the French Toast casserole idea, it is a great way to use up any stale bread you have in the house.
I cubed the baguette and put it in a greased pan.
I added a pint of blueberries
Poured a mixture of eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon over it
Topped it with a Streusel of flour, sugar and butter.
Bake and Enjoy.
