This was so tasty. Everyone loved it, not too sweet, easy to make ahead of time and let the oven do the work on the morning you want to eat it. Definitely will make this again. There are several versions on the Eatingwell site too, depending on what you want in your French Toast. Raisins, Pecans, berries etc.
I made a savoury version with grated cheese instead of blueberries and sugar. Put pine nuts on top and toasted them a bit- will try the sweet one next time, but omit the sugar! might use some maple or agarve syrup instead, better for you!
Fantastic, easy and absolute delicious! Our guests loved this - what a great dish to serve on New Year's Day. I substituted 1 loaf of day-old challah, omitted the 2nd pan for weighting, and added a cinnamon/brown sugar topping. Definitely in the rotation and highly recommend.
