Baked Blueberry French Toast for Two

I loved baked French toast.  But the only time I ever make it is for a holiday morning because I usually consider it a special breakfast.  And it makes a lot for just the two of us.  After reading numerous recipes for baked French toast, I decided to try and down size it to two servings.

For the first try, these came out great!  And I tried my best to keep these on the healthy side.  The only changes I would make would be to add a little more cinnamon and vanilla.  And you can sweeten it more to taste by drizzling maple syrup on it after it bakes.

I think next time, I will try it with sliced apples or bananas!

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces whole wheat bread, cubed
  • 1/2 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (I used frozen)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, or your milk of choice
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
  • Additional maple syrup for serving

Directions:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Lightly spray two small baking dishes with baking spray.  I used two 10 ounce ramekins.
  • Evenly divide the cubed bread between the two dishes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, egg white, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and maple syrup.
  • Evenly divide the egg mixture between the two ramekins, pouring it over the bread.
  • Gently press down on the bread to help it soak up the egg mixture.  I had a few pieces that weren’t covered in the egg, but that’s OK.  When it bakes it gets a little crunchy and I like that.
  • Put about a 1/4 cup of blueberries in each dish.  I think you could even do this prior to pouring the egg mixture on top.
  • Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the egg mixture looks cooked and the bread starts to brown and get crusty.  The blueberries will start to become juicy too.
  • Sweeten to taste with additional maple syrup, and enjoy!
