French Toast Bites with Blueberry Sauce

The perfect size for popping into your mouth, this French toast makes a satisfying breakfast. Be sure to dunk these tasty bites into the blueberry sauce before you eat them!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pint blueberries   
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup   
  • 2 Tbs. sugar   
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon  
  • 2 eggs   
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk  
  • 1/2 cup milk  
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract  
  • Pinch of salt   
  • 6 thick slices country-style bread, cut into 1-inch cubes 
  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter 

Directions:

In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the blueberries and maple syrup. Bring to a boil, stirring to prevent scorching, then remove from the heat and let cool.

In a large bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

In a large shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, milk, vanilla and salt until blended. Place the bread cubes in the egg mixture and, using a large spoon, toss gently until the cubes are evenly coated and all the egg mixture has been absorbed.

In a large fry pan over medium heat, melt 1 Tbs. of the butter. Add half of the coated bread cubes and cook, turning often, until golden brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer the cubes to the bowl with the cinnamon-sugar and toss to coat. Repeat with the remaining bread cubes and 1 Tbs. butter.

Divide the French toast bites into individual servings and sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon-sugar. Serve immediately with the blueberry sauce. Serves 4.
