Blueberry French Toast Casserole

Do you ever have slow weekend mornings? They’re few and far between when we have them but when we do, I like to be lazy. I like to sleep a little later, relax with a cup of coffee while I flip through a magazine or browse Pinterest and basically move at a snails pace in doing anything.
 

However, I have kids and my kids demand food for what feels like every single second of every single day. They want breakfast ASAP when they wake up and that doesn’t really gel with my sloth-like desires on slow weekend mornings.

 

 

If your children are anything like mine then you also know you don’t get a lazy Saturday or Sunday…unless you plan ahead.

 

Easy Breakfasts

 

I believe that easy breakfasts are the best breakfasts. Since I’m not generally a breakfast person – or a morning person – I don’t really like to get up early and put in a lot of elbow grease in the kitchen before 10 a.m.

 

Breakfast bakes are one of the easiest ways to make breakfast on these lazy days. They don’t take a lot of time to prepare and they can usually be made the night before.

 

This means that Kevin – who is more of a morning person – can pop it in the oven and feed himself and the kids before I stumble downstairs around 8 a.m. (If I’m lucky.)

 

Blueberry French Toast Casserole

 

I made this Blueberry French Toast breakfast Casserole last week and it’s honestly of the most delicious breakfast-y, dessert-like things I’ve ever made.

 

 

I can’t stress enough how incredible this is. Every time I had one plate full, I went back for seconds. It’s that good.

 

But how, you ask?

 

Well it combines a few of my favorite things. You have sweet, juicy blueberries; soft, gooey cream cheese; a beautiful egg mixture and French Bread.

 

 

So delicious and simple!

 

I know it sounds weird, but TRUST ME HERE. If French toast and a blueberry blintz had a baby, this dish would be its beautiful outcome.

 

This Blueberry French Toast Casserole is perfect for those easy Sunday mornings and it also pairs well with that daily 3 p.m. coffee everyone needs.

 

The simple, fresh Blueberry Sauce makes this all the better! It takes this from 100 percent good to 150 percent on a scale of 0-100 and it is incredibly easy to make while the casserole bakes.

Blueberry French Toast Casserole

Tip: You need to chill this for at least two hours before baking. You may also make it the night before and put it in the refrigerator overnight.

Ingredients

Blueberry French Toast Casserole

  • 1 large loaf of French bread
  • 8 eggs
  • 3 cups fresh blueberries
  • 16 oz. of cream cheese cubed
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 2 tsp. of cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp. of olive oil or cooking spray for greasing the baking dish

Blueberry Sauce

  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. of cornstarch
  • 3 cups of fresh blueberries

Instructions

Blueberry French Toast Casserole Instructions

  • Cut your French Bread into 1-2 inch cubes. 
  • Combine eggs, heavy whipping cream, whole milk, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon together and mix well.
  • Cut cream cheese into 1 inch cubes.
  • Grease your baking dish and layer in half of the bread. Layer in half of your blueberries and half of your cream cheese. 
  • Add a second layer of bread and then top with the rest of your cream cheese and your blueberries. Sprinkle on additional sugar as desired. 
  • Ladle the egg mixture over the top of the bake, ensuring that all the bread gets some coverage from the egg mix. 
  • Chill for at least 2 hours. You can make this the night before too, but you need at least two hours in the refrigerator. 
  • When ready to bake, preheat the over to 350. Bake for 30-40 minutes until the eggs have been cooked and the bread on the top of the casserole is a slightly golden brown. The cream cheese will not melt like normal cheese so expect to still see it hold shape. 
  • Cool for about 10 minutes and then serve with the blueberry sauce. This should be served warm but not hot. It is also easy to reheat later if you have leftovers. 

Blueberry Sauce

  • In a small pan, combine sugar, water, blueberries and cornstarch. 
  • Simmer for about 10-15 minutes until blueberries have softened and the cornstarch has thickened the mix. 
  • Cool slightly before serving and then pour half over the Blueberry French Toast Casserole. Reserve the other half for people who want more or for leftovers!
