Stuffed French Toast

Have you ever had stuffed french toast?  I heard you can order it at IHOP. A coworker made some and it was absolutely delicious.  She made it in three varieties - bananas, ham and cheese, and cream cheese. I researched a few recipes and decided to try making it.  I had some blueberries in my freezer from fruit picking, so I made blueberry cream cheese stuffed french toast.  I added raspberries and powdered sugar for a finishing touch.  Enjoy!

Blueberry Cream Cheese Stuffed Baked French Toast Recipe

1 loaf white bread (no crusts)
1/2 loaf french bread
6 c. fresh/frozen blueberries (rinsed)
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
7 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
1 1/2 c. half & half
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 c. powdered sugar

Cut white bread into cubes and place into the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle blueberries evenly over bread. 
Microwave cream cheese in bowl for 2 minutes. Stir carefully and add 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup sour cream, and 1 tsp. vanilla. Spread over blueberries. 
Cut french bread into 10-1 inch thick slices, place over cream cheese.
Beat eggs, milk, half & half, cinnamon and nutmeg and pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes covered, then uncover for approximately 15 minutes. Let set before slicing. Sift powdered sugar over before serving.
