Breakfast can be a real challenge.  Not only do you have to fight to get everyone awake and ready to start their day, but you have to find something that everyone loves to eat.  Cereal is a simple go-to item, but there’s nothing like a hot breakfast.  But let’s face it, the traditional favorites like bacon, eggs, and pancakes can also get old.  But you can change it up with a nice breakfast casserole. The folks at Recipe Rehab recently shared some breakfast recipes to help get out the usual breakfast routine, including a delicious looking French Toast Casserole with Blueberry Syrup.  Check it out!

French Toast Casserole with Blueberry Syrup


1 Nonstick cooking spray

16 slices â??lightâ?? wheat breads, lightly stale, and cut into 1-inch pieces

3 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk

2 large eggs

2 large egg whites

3 tablespoons stevia sugar substitute

1 teaspoon Finely grated zest of orange

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 pinch teaspoon salt

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

1 cup Juice of 1 orange

2 tablespoons maple syrup

2 tablespoons water


1. To make the French toast, coat an 8-byâ?? 8-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.

2. Arrange the bread in the dish and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together the almond milk, eggs, egg whites, stevia, zest, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt.

3.Pour the egg mixture over the bread cubes. Allow bread cubes to soak for at least 10 minutes, and up to overnight. (Cover and place in refrigerator if soaking more than 1 hour.)

4. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 400Ë?F. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil. Bake until the bread is slightly puffed, about 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue to bake until the top is golden and crusty, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to stand for a few minutes before serving.

5. To make the blueberry syrup, combine the blueberries, orange juice, maple syrup, and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until the berries break down, about 5 minutes. Serve the French toast topped with a spoonful of the blueberry sauce, the remainder of the sauce on the side.
