Blueberry Stout French Toast

Head Over Beers

During the week, I’m lucky if I remember to grab a granola bar as I’m rushing out the door. I never have to time to sit down and eat a “real” breakfast. You know what I mean – eggs, bacon, toast, pancakes, cereal, milk, coffee, orange juice ect. So, on the weekends, I like to treat myself. I’m usually a bacon and eggs kinda gal, but every once in a while I get an uncontrollable sweet tooth! I came across this recipe for Blueberry Stout French Toast from The Ales Kitchen and my mouth started watering. This french toast looked so good I wanted to lick my computer screen! Naturally, I had to share with all of you. Enjoy!
