Stuffed Blueberry French Toast

I actually made breakfast today! That never happens. My idea of a great breakfast is either cold cereal or sometimes even leftovers from dinner. Pizza anyone?

This morning I decided to make my version of stuffed blueberry french toast. Technically it's not stuffed since I only put bread on the bottom instead of bottom and top. No recipe, I winged it and this is what I came up with.

Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray. Line the bottom with a few pieces of bread, broken into bite size pieces.

Then, in a bowl, mix 1/2 block of cream cheese with a tablespoon or 2 of powdered sugar, and a tiny bit of milk. Drop this mixture by small spoonfuls over the bread.
Then, add a layer of blueberries (I used frozen).

In another bowl, mix together enough milk, eggs, a splash of vanilla, and a little cinnamon and nutmeg to cover the bread. Pour over bread & blueberries. Bake this for about 40-45 minutes at 375. I baked it uncovered because I may have added a little too much liquid, so I knew it wouldn't dry out.

I also sprinkled a tiny bit of powdered sugar overtop each of our bowls. Aaron loved it and had seconds.

Usually these type of stuffed french toast recipes are made the night before and left in the fridge overnight to bake in the morning. I may do that someday, but only for a special occasion. I never plan my breakfast the night before.

Next time I would add just a little bit of butter and more of the cream cheese mixture.
