Cherry Blueberry French Toast Bake

Fresh fruit adds a pop of color and flavor to this Cherry Blueberry French Toast Bake. Make sure you buy a few extra boxes or bags of fruit the next time you go shopping, so you can try this fun new breakfast dish.

Cherries and blueberries add a fresh pop of fruit in this delicious french toast bake.

Lately we have been all about the fruit. Every time we go grocery shopping, we come home with boxes of blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries. The other day I saw fresh cherries at the store, so a bag of those ended up in the cart too.

Most of the time I cannot keep the fruit monsters out of the fruit before I can bake with it. Not that I think that’s a problem. With all the sugary sweets that come out of our kitchen, I am thankful our kids like to grab fruit instead of cake. Having fresh fruit available is also great for making fruit parfaits or smoothies when we need a quick breakfast or snack.  [Read More…]
