We live in Michigan. I love fresh fruits and vegetables and spend a little extra work during the summer at UPick farms. Gathering the delicious tastes of summer. I can, freeze and harvest all the wonderful sweet berries and find ways to surprise my family. I threw this together on a camping trip and the family went nuts. Not one word was spoken during breakfast and the grandkids and our son's often ask to make this again and again. That is my reward. I hope your family will enjoy this as much as mine does.

How to Make Blueberry Campfire French Toast

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare campfire or preheat grill to 350 degrees. If you are grilling this you will want to use "indirect" heat. If you have three burners turn the two outside burners on and put this in the middle. Essentially where this is cooking you do not want to have that burner on.
  2. Arrange bread slices on greased heavy duty tinfoil, double thickness. You want this to be about 24'' x 18''. Bring foil up on sides to make a "pan".
  3. In a small bowl whisk eggs, milk, syrup, cinnamon and vanilla. Pour mixture over the bread. Sprinkle with nuts (optional) I'm a nut lover. My family not so much but if we are doing a ladies brunch or get together I always add pecans. Sprinkle with 1 c. of the blueberries.
  4. Place on grill using indirect heat or over campfire on a grill grate. Bake until it is cooked through and the egg is "set". This will take about 30-35 minutes depending on temperature of your campfire or grill. You may want to rotate this if one side is cooking hotter than the other.
  5. Remove from grill or campfire and let stand for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining blueberries and serve with additional syrup.
  6. If campfire cooking isn't your style or you are camping and it's raining. You can also make this in an oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place foil packet on a large baking sheet and baked for about 30 minutes or until heated through and eggs are "set". Let stand 10 minutes and sprinkle with remaining blueberries. Dust with powder sugar and serve with syrup.
