How to make french toast bake?

Just start by pre-heating your oven to 365 degrees and grabbing a large mixing bowl. In a large bowl mix eggs, milk, spices, and vanilla well. Place cubed bread into the egg mixture and stir. Make sure all the bread is soaked. Lightly coat a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray.

Place a layer of bread cubes evenly into the baking dish.
Top with blueberries in an even layer, repeating 2 more times and ending with a layer of bread. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.

When are blueberries in season?

Blueberries will be ready for picking in late July to mid-August. Don’t rush to pick the berries as soon as they turn blue. Wait a couple of days. When they are ready, they should fall off right into your hand.
