What is Indirect Heat?
- The method used to cook this meal is indirect heat. Indirect heat is a technique where the food is placed to the side of the heat source, rather than directly over the flame.
- If your grill has three burners light the outer two and place the foil packet in the middle to cook.
- If you’re camping, move the foil packet to the side so it’s not directly over the flame.

Delicious French Toast made on your grill! This Blueberry French Toast is grilled so you don't have to heat up your kitchen and can make it while camping over a campfire too! The hint of cinnamon and juicy blueberries will make this your new favorite french toast recipe!
- 1 loaf cinnamon bread (1 pound)
- 1 c. milk
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 6 eggs
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 c. pecans finely chopped
- 2 c. fresh blueberries divded
- 2 Tbsp real maple syrup
Prepare campfire or preheat grill to 350 degrees. If you are grilling this you will want to use "indirect" heat. If you have three burners turn the two outside burners on and put this in the middle. Essentially where this is cooking you do not want to have that burner on.
Arrange bread slices on greased heavy duty tinfoil, double thickness. You want this to be about 24'' x 18''. Bring foil up on sides to make a "pan".
In a small bowl whisk eggs, milk, syrup, cinnamon and vanilla. Pour mixture over the bread. Sprinkle with nuts and 1 c. of the blueberries.
Place on grill using indirect heat or over campfire on a grill grate. Bake until it is cooked through and the egg is "set". This will take about 30-35 minutes depending on temperature of your campfire or grill. You may want to rotate this if one side is cooking hotter than the other.
Remove from grill or campfire and let stand for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining blueberries and serve with additional syrup.
This can also be made in the stove. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place foil packet on a large baking sheet and baked for about 30 minutes or until heated through and eggs are "set". Let stand 10 minutes and sprinkle with remaining blueberries. Serve with syrup.
