Here is an amazingly delicious breakfast dish that is so easy, you won't believe it. It is also a great breakfast on a holiday morning, it is that special!




Place 4 cups bread in a greased 13x9 inch pan. Layer on cream cheese, blueberries and remaining bread. Beat eggs, milk and syrup. Pour over all. Cover with foil and refrigerate 2 to 24 hours. Bake covered at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake 25 minutes more. Let stand before serving. Serve syrup on the side, if you wish. Enjoy!

I recently misplaced a recipe for baked french toast using english breakfast muffins. It was prepared overnight and the next morning you pop it in the oven. They really sounded good. If anyone has a recipe like this I would appreciate a copy. Thanks.

2 eggs (or 1 egg plus 2 egg whites)
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 English muffins
butter (or nonstick cooking spray)
warm pure maple syrup
Whisk eggs in small bowl until frothy. Add milk, sugar and cinnamon. Whisk well. Transfer to shallow dish. (Can be made ahead and refrigerated, covered airtight, for as long as 3 days.).
To cook, open English muffins; place in milk mixture, cut-side down, for about 4 minutes. Turn and soak 1 minute more.

Heat greased nonstick skillet over medium heat. When hot, cook muffins, cut-side down, until browned, about 3 minutes. Turn, brown other side, about 3 minutes more.
Can be kept warm in 200 degree oven while cooking remaining muffins. Serve hot with warm maple syrup passed separately. Good luck.
