The Birth of Blueberry Glazed French Toast

French toast has many incarnations in my house.  Every season seems to bring a new flavor or style to the breakfast table, and when I found blueberry swirl bread, I was set for a blueberry incarnation of French toast.  Blueberry Glazed French Toast was born in my kitchen.  And it was amazing!  So much so, that I have been asked for an encore!

It’s all in the Blueberries: Blueberry Glazed French Toast

In my area, Aunt Millie’s makes a delicious blueberry swirl bread in the spring.  Being the blueberry lover that I am, I picked some up for toast, thinking my kids would love it.  It ended up that my kids looked at the blueberries I had brought home from a local farmer’s market and asked me if I could make them into syrup and the bread into French toast.  The bread was great on its own, but the fresh picked blueberries, bursting with flavor and sweet juiciness, really made the Blueberry Glazed French Toast.  Choose berries that are plump and dark blue, with a smooth skin.  You’ll have a bright flavor that will compliment  not only blueberry swirl bread, but any bread that you want to make French toast from.  The more flavor in your blueberries, the more flavor in your final dish.  To really bring out the flavor of the berries, here’s a secret:  cinnamon and lemon peel.  Not things you would expect, but the lemon really brightens the blueberries, and the cinnamon brings out just a bit of the earthiness, making people wonder what you did to make the sauce taste so good!  I add both of those to my fresh blueberry pie too!
