Blueberry Creme Brulee' French Toast

With Christmas in just a few days, cooking is something YOU DON'T want to think about...and with Christmas being on a SUNDAY this year, you may want something quick to eat so you have time to hustle off to church. This recipe is perfect...because you make it the night before and just pop it in the oven 30 minutes before you want to eat! IT is TO DIE FOR GOOD!!! This is seriously the very best french toast I've ever eaten!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Blueberry Creme Brulee' French Toast and I will be making it again and again and again...and NOT just for the holidays. Its definitely a little bit of heaven...give it a try, I bet you'll agree with me.

Blueberry Creme Brulee' French Toast
1/2 c butter
1 c. brown sugar
2 T corn syrup
1 loaf of dense bread, sliced (Texas Toast Bread...I used a loaf of homemade bread)
5 eggs
1 1/2 c. heavy cream
1/4 t. salt
1 t vanilla
1/2 t. cinnamon
1-2 can blueberry pie filling

In a small saucepan melt butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup over medium heat until smooth, stir constantly so it won't stick. Pour mixture into a greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Spread until bottom of pan is covered. Place 6 slices of bread in a single layer to cover bottom of pan. Mix together eggs, cream, salt, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour 1/2 the mixture into pan, covering each bread slice. Place 6 MORE slices of bread into pan (if you are NOT using Texas Toast Bread...since its already thick...if your using this bread, pour ALL of the mixture over bread as you won't need to layer another piece of bread) over the top of other bread slices, pour remaining mixture over bread, making sure to cover each piece. Cover and refrigerate over night. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Serve warm, topped with blueberry pie filling and whipped topping...its divine!!!
*YOU may want to make 2 pans...its really that good!!!
