Cherry French Toast

This recipe was originally done with blueberries at the White Lace Inn in Door County, Wisconsin. I used frozen cherries, brought them to a boil with a little water, added some corn starch mixed with water, and let them cool in the fridge for a while to thicken.

1 loaf white bread (no crusts)
1/2 lof French bred
6 c fresh/frozen blueberries (rinsed) (Or cherries as noted above)
8 oz. Cream cheese
1/2 c plain yogurt
1/2 c sugar
1 t vanilla
7 eggs
1 1/2 c milk
1 1/2 c half and half
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t ground nutmeg

Cut white bread into cubes and place into the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle blueberries evenly over bread. Microwave cream cheese in bowl for 2 min. stir carefully and add 1/2 c sugar, 1/2 c yogurt , and 1 t vanilla. Spread over blueberries. Cut French bread into 1″ thick slices or break apart into small chunks like I did. Place over cream cheese. Beat eggs, milk, half & half, cinnamon and nutmeg and pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 for 45 min. covered, then uncovered for approx 15 min. Let set before slicing.
