  • Cut each roll into 3 slices (you should have 10 cups, loosely measured). Place on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes or until lightly toasted.

  • Sprinkle some of the blueberries into the dish and arrange roll slices in rows. Sprinkle with remaining blueberries, tucking some between the roll slices.

  • Melt remaining butter and whisk together with Almond Breeze, sugar, extracts, and eggs. Pour over bread, then cover and refrigerate overnight.

  • Remove French toast from refrigerator and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until firm when the dish is gently tapped. Serve warm, dusted with powdered sugar.

Cook's Note:

Hint of Honey Almond Breeze will make this dish slightly less sweet.

I'd call this more of a custard than a traditional overnight French toast but it was delicious. After reading other reviews I modified as follows: I used plain dinner rolls instead of the sweeter ones in this recipe. I used 2% milk instead of almond milk (2 1/2 cups instead of 3) I used 1/2 a cup of sugar instead of 2/3 I put blops of cream cheese (about 1/4 cup total) on top before baking. I baked this covered for 1 hour and then uncovered for an additional 10 minutes. No sogginess in the middle at all after that. Read More

Made to recipe but morning showed mixture too soggy. Had to strain out soupy mess. Added cubes of crusty bread and 2 beaten eggs. Mixed well. Added more berries with cinnamon vanilla and sugar. Baked at 375 for one hour. Better... edible at least. Read More

It did not say whether to cook it covered or uncovered so I baked it covered for most of the time and then took off the foil for the last part to crisp up. I guess if you want it so if you would leave the foil on. Read More

Tastes great! It s more of a bread pudding in my opinion; baked for almost 1.5 hours and still sipping wet in the middle and I didn t even use all the almond milk concoction to begin with. Read More

way too sweet. I would omit the sweet rolls and use regular bread and also too much milk. Mixture was too soupy and not custard like. Read More
