Alright guys, here it is.  You’ve been ignoring her calls all year.  Maybe she even learned how to text this year so you’re getting 3 or 4 paragraph texts everyday and you probably visit her from time to time but on Sunday, it’s the day of days.  You LEGIT, have to do something nice.  Now most of us will be seeing our mom’s on Mother’s Day.  When I say “most” I am not including myself which means I needed to send extra awesome gifts.  But for you lucky sons, I’ve got a great surprise that’s way better than dropping $200 on some pandora bracelet charms and flowers.

If you aren’t stupid, you know women loves gifts that are made.  It shows effort and thought.  So here it is, the perfect Mother’s Day Gift:


Blueberry French Toast

Overnight Blueberry French Toast Recipe

What You’ll Need:

  • 12 slices day-old bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 12 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon butter

What You Do With It

  1. Lightly grease a 9×13 inch baking dish. Arrange half the bread cubes in the dish, and top with cream cheese cubes. Sprinkle 1 cup blueberries over the cream cheese, and top with remaining bread cubes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and syrup. Pour over the bread cubes. Cover, and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Remove the bread cube mixture from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before baking. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Cover, and bake 30 minutes. Uncover, and continue baking 25 to 30 minutes, until center is firm and surface is lightly browned.
  5. In a medium saucepan, mix the sugar, cornstarch, and water. Bring to a boil. Stirring constantly, cook 3 to 4 minutes. Mix in the remaining 1 cup blueberries. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, until the blueberries burst. Stir in the butter, and pour over the baked French toast
