I picked up this recipe recently at our grocery store knowing that eventually I would need it. This weekend both sets of grandparents were in town for our oldest child’s First Communion, so before church we had a Mother’s Day/First Communion brunch and this recipe was a huge hit.
12 (1 inch) slices of day old French bread
2 1/2 cups milk
1 cup brown sugar, divided
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup-2 cups blueberries, frozen or fresh
Arrange bread in a greased pan (about 13×9).
In a bowl mix eggs and milk. Then add 3/4 cup brown sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. Pour mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for 8 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Remove bread from refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Combine melted butter and remaining sugar and drizzle over top. Sprinkle with blueberries.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until set.
Did I change anything? The recipe called for 1 cup chopped pecans which I left out.
