2 cups blueberries
⅓ cup + 2 tablespoons water, divided

French Toast Directions

  1. Whisk the eggs, milk, lemon juice, sugar and vanilla in a shallow bowl. Soak the bread in the egg mixture, one slice at a time.
  2. Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Fry soaked bread slices, 1-2 at a time, until golden brown on both sides. Serve topped with warm blueberry lemon syrup.

Blueberry Lemon Syrup Directions

  1. Combine blueberries, ⅓ cup water, sugar and lemon juice in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil then lower heat and gently simmer.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons water and whisk until smooth. Stir into the blueberry mixture and continue to simmer until the sauce thickens enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Cover pan and remove from heat until ready to serve.
