Blueberry French Toast Bake

Happy Sunday friends!! We love Sundays in this house because it’s usually reserved for all things family… today we are going to go on the hunt for a great pumpkin patch since it’s our first (and maybe only?) Fall in the area. I saw a version of this blueberry french toast bake online and wanted to whip it up for us before we went pumpkin hunting! I made the mistake of telling the kids yesterday that I’d be making french toast this morning #badidea because I was woken up to “Is it ready yet??” at 6:30 am! This was my first time making it but I got the approval from the kids so I’d say it was a winner!! I’d do a few things differently next time though, like prep it the night before and let it sit overnight in the fridge. I had read that I could either let it sit overnight or bake it right away.. I should’ve listened to the advice of the seasoned french toast bakers 😉 So learn from my impatience and make it overnight!
