Blueberry French Toast Casserole Recipe - This casserole is awesome! Not too sweet, filled with healthy blueberries, and can be made ahead for company! Yummy

Every summer our family does U-Pick blueberries It is one of our favorite summer traditions! We eat lots fresh, make pie, and freeze lots in small Ziploc bags to have on hand throughout the winter.

With our abundance of blueberries I decided to mix up my favorite breakfast casserole I make for family. I always making casseroles I can make ahead and have in the fridge. That way when company comes I am not spending time cooking in the kitchen. All I do is move things from the fridge to the oven to the table.


Breakfast Casserole (Overnight)

i use a french loaf

First you are going to grease a 9x13 pan with either butter or cooking spray.

Now rip a loaf of French Bread (we get ours at Target for $0.60) into bite size pieces and place directly into the pan.  Toss in 1 - 1 1/2 cup blueberries.

My kids love helping with this part.

Now comes the “cream” part. Mix together 8oz of cream cheese with 1/3 cup powdered sugar. Now drop little mounds all over your bread.

Note: You can do 2 blocks of cream cheese if your family loves cream cheese, but mine just likes a hint of it without being overwhelming.

mix up with wet ingredients

Now in a separate bowl you are going to whisk together:
  • 12 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teas vanilla
  • 1/3 cup maple sugar (or granulated sugar if you prefer)
Pour the egg mixture over the bread. Now cover and put in the refrigerator overnight.

Note: It can be made up to 3 days ahead of time! Such a huge time savor for entertaining company.

On the day you want to serve the Blueberries and Cream French Toast Casserole just pull the pan out of the fridge and let it warm to room temperature for a couple minutes while your oven preheats to 350 F.

Bake covered for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 30 minutes.

You can serve this as is or alongside blueberry syrup for an extra rich blueberry taste, but my family thinks it's perfect just like this.

This casserole serves 8-10.
