Recipe: Baked blueberry French toast

Baked blueberry French toast — one of many healthy recipes from Mayo Clinic.


Directions

Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Cut 10 1-inch-thick slices from baguette. Arrange in baking dish. In a large bowl, whisk egg whites until frothy. Then whisk in milk, nutmeg, vanilla and 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Pour evenly over bread, turning slices to coat evenly. Cover pan. Chill at least 8 hours or overnight, until liquid is absorbed by bread. Preheat oven to 400 F. Drop blueberries evenly over bread. In a small bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons brown sugar and oil, and pecans if you wish. Spoon evenly over bread. Bake, uncovered, about 20 minutes, until liquid from blueberries is bubbling.
