Baked Blueberry Pecan French Toast

Yesterday I had some of my girlfriends over for breakfast and made Baked Blueberry Pecan French Toast from Mel's Kitchen Cafe. Holy Moly Cow! It was the best (and i mean THE BEST-you are talking to a big time food snob here) French Toast i have ever eaten!

                                      

 Mel couldn't have described it any better: The pecans are toasted and tossed with a smidgen of butter – giving them a delicious, buttery flavor. The french baguette slices soak in an egg/milk/brown sugar mixture overnight and it all bakes to glorious perfection with fresh, tart blueberries and a brown sugar caramel drizzled atop.
It was absolutely amazing and makes a perfect morning breakfast! (Or midnight snack)
You can find the recipe here:
It was a splurge breakfast but well worth all the yummy calories. It is very rich, i could only eat one piece. I sprinkled it with some maple syrup. Fresh whipped cream would make it even more fabulous. It pairs up well with scrambled eggs and fresh coffee. The best part is, its super easy to make and not at all time consuming! Its also very elegant and definitely company worthy. My guests loved it!
