Today is national Blueberry Day. (well it was when I originally posted this!) I have no idea who comes up with what day is what. It would make more sense to me to have blueberry day in, say, July when blueberries are fresh picked. That said I love blueberries and freeze them by the case when they are in season. We use them all year long in Lemon Blueberry Pancakes, Blueberry Cobblers, Blueberry Brulees, and this recipe, Baked Blueberry French Toast with an orange blueberry sauce. This graces our tables even in the dead of winter. It is bright in flavor, easy to make, as perfect for a Christmas brunch as it is for a Mother’s Day brunch and a wonderful ‘do ahead’ recipe.I have successfully used frozen mixed berries for this recipe or all blackberries when they are in season. No matter what the berry this will be a winner on your table.
So, this morning I am raising a cup of coffee and sending a cheer for Blueberry Day!
