Blueberry-Stuffed French Toast

See also

A fruity French toast becomes light and lovely company fare when you fill it with blueberries and top it with an orangey sweet sauce.

What You Need:

(Makes: 8 servings)

1 & 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries

3 tablespoons of sugar, divided

8 slices of Italian bread (1-1/4 inches thick)

4 eggs

1/2 cup of orange juice

1 teaspoon of grated orange peel

Dash of salt

For the Sauce:

1/4 cup of orange juice

1/4 cup of water

3 tablespoons of sugar

1 tablespoon of cornstarch

1/8 teaspoon of salt

1 & 1/2 cups of orange sections

1 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries

1/3 cup of sliced almonds, toasted

What to Do:

STEP 1) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, toss blueberries with 2 tablespoons sugar. Cut a pocket horizontally in each slice of bread. Fill with blueberries.

STEP 2) In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs, orange juice, orange peel, salt and remaining sugar. Dip both sides of bread in egg mixture, being careful to not squeeze out berries. Place in a greased 15x10x1 inch baking pan. Bake 14 to 17 minutes or until golden brown, carefully turning once.

STEP 3) Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, whisk the first five sauce ingredients until smooth. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat; stir in fruit and heat through. Serve French toast with sauce; sprinkle with almonds.

STEP 4) Enjoy!

Note: To toast nuts, spread in a 15x10x1 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Or, spread in a dry nonstick skillet and heat over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
