Yum!  I love french toast and I'm always looking for great recipes for french toast. This particular recipe is an overnight french toast recipe that would be a great addition to a brunch or a nice treat for the weekend.

1 cup milk
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 Tbsp cinnamon
1) melt sugar, butter and syrup in sauce pan.  Bring to boil and pour in 9x11 baking dish.
2) cut off crusts and make 2 layers over caramel mixture.
3) Beat remaining ingredients and pour over bread and caramel. Let soak overnight in fridge.

Blueberry French Toast Casserole

Yummy brunch idea or mother's day recipe.

Slice 6 croissants open lengthwise and place 6 halves face up in a casserole dish.

Mix 9 eggs, 1 3/4 cups milk and 1/3 cup syrup.  Beat until thoroughly blended.
Sprinkle most of one container of blueberries over the  croissants, then pour about half the egg mixture over the croissants.  Push any dry portion of the croissants down into the mixture to make sure all are moist.

Place the remaining croissant halves face down in the dish so that they cover the first group.  Sprinkle the rest of the blueberries over the dish.  Pour the rest of the egg mixture over the croissants repeating the above procedure. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar or serve with syrup.
