Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 (1-pound) loaf hearty, whole wheat bread
    1 cup blueberries
    1/2 cup sliced almonds
    1/2 cup cottage cheese
    2 cup egg substitute
    2 1/2 cups skim milk
    2 tablespoons granulated sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 teaspoon almond extract

Directions

Lightly coat a 13x9-inch baking dish with non-stick spray. Tear the bread into 1-inch cubes. Mix the bread cubes, blueberries, and almond slices. Spread the mixture evenly in the baking dish. Blend the cottage cheese in a blender, food processor, or using a hand mixer. When there is a smooth consistency, blend in the eggs and milk. Mix in the sugar and the extracts. Pour the liquid mixture over the top of the bread. For the best results, cover the casserole and let it sit for at least an hour (or up to overnight) in refrigerator. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Cover the French toast with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 20 minutes until the casserole is puffy and golden brown. Serve and enjoy while still warm.

    I made mine with a double fiber bread. I think next time I make it I'll use a little less bread and a little more fruit. Yes it's a bit high in carbs, but it left me feeling full so I kept my lunch low carb and it balanced out nicely. - 12/12/13

    Why all the hate on this? It is nowhere near the healthiest breakfast as is, but I'll post a makeover of it that'll keep me (a person who eats 150g protein and under 130g carbs a day) happy. My mom used to always make this after for after 5am hockey practice :) - 11/15/13

    I don't think this is a too high calorie meal at all, it's the same calorie intake as most breakfasts. It's a good size portion that includes carbs and protein which is what your body needs before a good work out. Can't wait to try it! - 10/30/13

    This is absolutely awesome - such an elegant brunch dish to serve company. We had something similar served at a Bed & Breakfast Inn and I'm sure it was not as healthy as this. Ir's not for every day but surely is a treat on occasion! - 3/2/14

    @Janet 1012. It is listed in the recipe as a one pound loaf and is what I used. A little bland for me, my wife thought it was great. Two sons and grand-kids are coming for breakfast tomorrow & we'll finish this up with some added protein - vegetarian sausage. Next time I'll try lower cal options. - 11/16/13

    I added some cinnamon, but otherwise followed the recipe. If I make this again, I would add even more spice to it; a bit bland... - 11/15/13

    Is the "one loaf" a one-pound loaf? I'd REALLY like to try this because it sounds so good, but I want to make it as intended by the one who posted it. - 11/2/13

    MInutes to Cook i slisted as 120 at top of recipe, but total cooking time is only 40 minutes.

  • The nutrition facts on this recipe just can't be correct. The idea is a good one, so made my own recipe using this ingredient list as a guide. I made the portion size on that large of a pan 1/12 instead of 1/8 of the pan. My version has 234 calories, high carbs & protein, but high fiber too. - 3/4/14

  • We liked this as a new option for breakfast. It took ten minutes longer than 40 minutes for it to set up and I let it rest for five minutes after that. - 3/4/14

  • Where does all the sodium come from. Is it the cottage cheese? - 3/2/14

    To me, "Protein packed" means the protein grams are near or exceeding the carb grams. Just sayin'. - 3/2/14

    I just used this site's recipe calculator and the fiber shows as at least 4g per serving. I'm sure the nutritional rating spot was just a typo. - 3/2/14

  • Breakfast should be the most caloric and nutritionally dense meal of your day. I burn a minimum of 7000 calories per week and this is a perfect breakfast. Go get 'em! - 11/15/13

    A little high in sodium and low on fiber, but with appropriate planning it is not a problem.
    looks DELICIOUS! can't wait to try. - 11/15/13

  • Feedback is great, but plowing through the "comments" on people rebuilding the recipe, instead of submitting one of THEIR OWN, is annoying. Great recipe! - 11/15/13

    I will use a slice of organic seed bread or a gluten free. Plain greek yogurt instead of cottage cheese. One organic egg with organic honey or maple syrup instead of sugar to make just one serving in a muffin pan so I am not tempted to eat the whole pan. - 10/30/13
