Author's Notes

Balsamic Blueberry Sauce can be made a day ahead with the french toast and rewarmed for serving, or cooked while the Blueberry French Toast is baking. I made the french toast in muffin tins for presentation, however they were fussy to assemble and difficult to remove from tins. A single 8"x8" pan is recommended.

Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a medium bowl whisk together Large Egg (6), 2% Reduced Fat Milk (1 cup), Maple Syrup (1/4 cup), Ground Cinnamon (1/2 teaspoon), and Ground Nutmeg (1 pinch).
Step 2
Generously spread Butter (to taste) on an 8x8 pan.
Step 3
Spread half the White Bread (6 cup) evenly in pan and dot with half of the Cream Cheese (6 ounce). Sprinkle with half of the Fresh Blueberries (1/2 cup). Repeat with remaining bread, cream cheese and blueberries. Pour egg mixture evenly over bread. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
Step 4
Meanwhile prepare the blueberry balsamic sauce. In a medium sauce pan combine Frozen Blueberries (2 cup), Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup), and Water (4 tablespoon).
Step 5
Cook over medium heat until simmering and sugar has dissolved, approximately 10 minutes.
Step 6
Stir together Corn Starch (1 tablespoon) and remaining Water (2 tablespoon). Stir into blueberries and heat to a full simmer.
Step 7
Remove from heat and stir in Pure Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon) and Blueberry Balsamic Vinegar (2 tablespoon).
Step 8
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Step 9
Bake the bread mixture uncovered for 40-45 minutes until golden and set in the centre.
Step 10
Remove from oven and serve with balsamic blueberry sauce.
