Dutch Oven Blueberry Cream Cheese French ToastLast month we headed down to Bryce Canyon in Southern Utah for the National Dutch Oven Gathering, they had a little contest for breakfast one morning. The topic was "Breakfast Bread" - not wanting to make cinnamon rolls or the likes - this is what I came up with.....
|Blueberry Cream Cheese French Toast|
Toss1 loaf of French bread cut into cubes
2 pkgs. cream cheese cut into cubes
1 C blueberries
together in a 12" Dutch Oven (or 9x13 pan)
Mix12 lg. eggs
2 C Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/3 C Maple syrup
together and pour over the top and refrigerate overnight
Next morning place 9 coals on the bottom and 18 coals on the top and bake till golden brown...about an hour.
Topping1 C sugar
2 tbsp. corn starch
1 C water,
bring to a boil, stir consistently for 3-4 minutes, mix in 1 C blueberries, reduce heat to a simmer for 10 minutes until the blueberries burst. Stir in 1 table spoon of butter and pour over the baked French toast.
...- it was nice to prep part of it, the evening before, so all I had to do was add briquettes and make the syrup, and breakfast was ready.
This was a nice breakfast in a beautiful canyon, with some amazing people!
Have fun Cookin'
