Delicious Blueberry French Toast Bake

This was another easy and awesome recipe !!  If your not cooking low sodium you can use regular sourdough or french bread.  You make this the night before and the next morning while the oven is pre heating make the topping.  Sprinkle on the blueberries and topping, bake and you have breakfast for six people !!!  This was sweet but not overwhelming.  We drizzled maple syrup over it and it was  DELICIOUS !!!! Yes, I love blueberries, I can’t wait to have them fresh from the garden.
