Overnight Blueberry French Toast with Blueberry Syrup

This is a recipe that I found in my newspaper in December of 2004.  It came from a woman who runs the Mountain Hollow Inn, a bed and breakfast located in the Salt Lake Valley.  It is a family favorite.

I tend to always make this in the Spring time.  I happen to make it this year for Easter breakfast.  It is great because you make it the night before and keep it in the fridge, then just bake in the morning.  This time I made it using french bread.  I have also make it with Texas toast.  I think I prefer the Texas toast.  However, I do think the next time I make it, I’m gonna try it with cinnamon bread.  I think that the cinnamon would be a nice addition.
