Blueberry Surprise French Toast Casserole

Directions

  1. Place half of the bread cubes over the bottom of a well-buttered 3-quart rectangular baking dish. Sprinkle cream cheese and blueberries over bread cubes. Arrange remaining bread cubes over blueberries.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat eggs with a rotary beater; beat in milk and the 1/2 cup syrup. Carefully pour egg mixture over the bread mixture. Cover dish with plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove plastic wrap and cover dish with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake about 25 minutes more or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, and topping is puffed and golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm with blueberry-flavor or maple syrup.

*Tip:

To dry bread slices, arrange bread in a single layer on a wire rack; cover loosely and let stand overnight. Or cut bread into 1/2-inch cubes; spread in a large baking pan. Bake, uncovered, in a 300 degrees F oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until dry, stirring twice; cool.

Make-Ahead Tip

I made this for a brunch and it was excellent. But a few tweaks are needed. The flavor is very good but I did add a bit of vanilla extract. Also the secret is to make the night before and weight the casserole down so the toasted bread has time to absorb all the egg mixture. Do not use regular white sandwich bread. You need a quality rustic bakery bread of your choice.

I used regular white bread and then toasted it. The flavor was very bland, almost tasteless. I added cinnamon but that didn't add to the flavor much. It took a very long time to bake, an additional 15 minutes and it was till soggy in the middle. I ended up putting it in the microwave for an extra 5 minutes to get the middle done. It needs something added to enhance the flavor. I won't make it again.

Loved the flavor of this recipe. However, following the instructions as written produced a layer of dry croutons over a lovely layer of bread pudding. May I suggest that you do Instruction #1 (assembly) after you do instruction #2 (soaking of bread in the egg mixture) for a much better outcome. I used challah bread and it was terrific. I loved the blueberries, but could have skipped the cream cheese; my housemates were big fans of the cream cheese. I will try this recipe again, but will soak the bread before assembling with cream cheese & blueberries. The bread & egg mixture needs to be mixed several times, in my humble opinion, to make sure each piece is soaking.
