Ingredients:  
1/2 lb loaf crusty French Bread-Sliced
10 large eggs
1/4 sugar plus 1 tsp for sprinkling
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 pint heavy cream
2 tbsp butter or margarine-melted
1 (12oz) bag frozen blackberries, defrosted

Preheat oven to 300.

Spread the bread slices on a baking sheet and turn the oven off. Place the sheet in the oven and leave it overnight until the bread is dried.

Preheat oven to 300

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and 1/4 cup sugar until all yolks are broken, and then add the milk and cream. Put the dried bread pieces on top of the egg mixture. Wait a few minutes, and then push the rest of the bread into the mixture and mix lightly. Place a small or medium casserole dish on a baking sheet that is lined with foil. Brush the dish with some of the butter.

Put half of the bread mixture in the dish to make a layer that covers the bottom. With a slotted spoon, arrange the berries evenly over the bread layer. Sprinkle the berries with sugar. Using your hands, pull out the remaining bread and create a second layer, arranging it evenly and patting down any crusts. With a spatula, stir the remaining egg mixture and pour it over the top bread layer. Bake the French toast until it rises about 1 inch on the sides, about 1 hour. Let it cool for about 10 minutes, then cut into servings and serve immediately with sausage patties and fresh fruit.
