How to make blueberry French toast casserole

Print this recipe
French toast is one of my favorite ultimate comfort foods. I associate French toast with lazy Saturday mornings when you stay in your pajamas for way too long. As kids, whenever Mom made French toast, we knew it was going to be the start of a fun weekend.
I love this blueberry French toast casserole because it's both delicious and easy to make. It takes only 5 minutes to prepare, and then you throw it in the oven and wait for the casserole to be finished. For an extra treat, after baking, pour maple syrup over the top!
