Today I’m going against the norm, and I’m posting a blueberry recipe. I know. Everyone is gearing up for pumpkin this and apple that. Meanwhile, I’m still back here in berry haven thinking it’s June or July. But I don’t mind being different. Besides berries are always welcome in my kitchen.

How about you? Do you use berries year round?

Plus if you went berry picking this year and froze a loot of them, then you’ll know just the recipe to break out and bake…this one.

This French Toast Bake is a version of my infamous French Toast Casserole but with cream cheese and blueberries for a heavenly breakfast. Perfect for serving overnight guests or bringing to a breakfast potluck.

It’s made with a dreamy homemade blueberry sauce that would also be perfect over waffles or ice cream or pancakes.

The cream cheese is cut up into chunks and placed on top with the berries but you can also mix it until creamy and spread it throughout. The choice is yours.

I love making French toast casserole with homemade bread but if you don’t have any that’s totally ok. Just grab a baguette from the local grocery store of bakery.

I can’t wait to hear how much you enjoy this delicious new breakfast casserole.

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf DAY OLD French bread or other crusty bread 14-16 ounces
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups milk

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package cream cheese 8 ounces

For Blueberry Sauce

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries

Instructions

  • Cut bread into cubes or tear into small pieces.  Place in a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Cut cream cheese into 1-in. cubes; place over bread. 

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, half and half, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour over bread in the pan. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • While covered bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. To check, insert a knife in the center. If it comes out clean, it’s done.

Blueberry Sauce

  • In a small saucepan combine the sugar, water, and cornstarch until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook mixture and stir until thickened, 2-4 minutes. Stir in the blueberries. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until berries begin to break down about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Serve with the French toast bake.

Notes

The cream cheese is cut up into chunks and placed on top with the berries but you can also mix it until creamy and spread it throughout. The choice is yours.
