Blueberry Surprise French Toast Casserole
Ingredients
  • 12  slices  dry white bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 8 cups)
  • 2 8  ounce packages  cream cheese, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1  cup  fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 12  eggs
  • 2  cups  milk
  • 1/2  cup  maple syrup or maple-flavor syrup
  •  Blueberry-flavor, maple, or maple-flavor syrup
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 to 24 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.

From the Test Kitchen*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.
