Blueberry-Peach French Toast

A perfect way to use fresh summer fruit (or thawed frozen fruit) for an easy French Toast creation.

Ingredients

  • 16 slices light whole wheat bread
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries, or 1 cup frozen, thawed blueberries
  • 1 large peach, chopped or 1 cup frozen, thawed peach slices
  • 2 ½ cups fat-free skim milk
  • 2 cups fat-free egg substitute
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, granulated
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange 8 slices of bread in the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, squishing slices together to make one layer. Sprinkle the blueberries and peaches on top. 

In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, egg substitute, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Pour half of the milk mixture over fruit. Top with the remaining 8 slices of bread. Pour remaining milk mixture over bread. Using a spatula, press top layer of bread slices down to saturate with milk mixture. 

Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover dish and bake until egg mixture is set and top is golden brown, about 10 minutes more. Cool slightly before sifting powdered sugar on top. Slice into 8 pieces and serve. 

Blueberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Blueberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
