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

tear apart french bread and toss into buttered casserole dish. Toss together with pint of blueberries

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.

cream together cream cheese and powdered sugar

Cream together 8 oz cream cheese and 1/3 cup powdered sugar.

drop dollops of cream cheese mixture in casserole dish

Now comes the “cream” part. 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.

whisk together eggs, milk, and maple syrup

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 egg, milk, and maple syrup  mixture over breakfast casserole

Pour the egg mixture over the bread. Now cover and put in the refrigerator overnight.

Note: It can be made up to 5 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.

easy, overnight breakfast casserole

You can serve this with maple syrup, sprinkled with powdered sugar, but my family loves it just the way it is coming out of the oven. It tastes like a flavorful, creamy, summery Blueberries & Cream Breakfast Casserole!
