BERRY COMPOTE

2 cups blueberries

1 cup blackberries

cup maple syrup

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

FRENCH TOAST

3 eggs

1 cup whole milk

cup half-and-half

⅓ cup maple syrup

2 teaspoons cinnamon

Pinch of nutmeg

Pinch of salt

Eight 1-inch-thick slices brioche bread

Directions:
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 325F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. MAKE THE BERRY COMPOTE: In a medium pot, mix the blueberries and blackberries with the maple syrup, honey and vanilla extract to combine. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook until the mixture is syrupy but the berries are still mostly whole, 6 to 9 minutes.

3. MAKE THE FRENCH TOAST: In a large, shallow dish, whisk the eggs with the milk, half-and-half, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt to combine.

4. Dip each bread slice into the custard for 4 to 5 seconds per side, allowing it to soak up some of the liquid.

5. Transfer the dipped slices to the prepared baking sheet. When all the bread slices have been dipped, pour the remaining custard over the slices of bread.

6. Top each slice with 3 tablespoons of the berry mixture. Bake until the berry mixture is bubbly and the French toast is slightly crisp around the edges, 15 to 17 minutes. Cool slightly before serving. Serve with additional berries, if desired.
