I can never lose this recipe for overnight French Toast. I made it one night when we had 12-yep TWELVE, twelve overnight guests spending the night in my house. I know you'll want to blame me and my extraordinarily large Italian family, but this time it was Quiet Man's uncle in law's father's funeral, so it was his big family this time. Dizzy now? They were wonderful guests, willing to sleep on cupboard shelves in Star War's kid-sized sleeping bags. The least I could do was make them a lovely mapley french toast breakfast, bejeweled with sweet blueberries.
Trust me: write this recipe down in permanent ink and pin it to the front of your shirt. You'll want to have it forever. Money Saving Tips: This is perfect for those day old loaves of french bread you can buy for less than a dollar at the market. Use frozen berries like I did, if fresh are too expensive.
