Time to prep this delicious overnight french toast!

To begin, take your 9×13 inch pan and spray it with nonstick cooking. 

Then take half of the bread cubes and arrange them into the bottom of the 9×13 pan. 

Next, spread the cream cheese cubes and the fresh blueberries over top fo the bread cubes, as evenly as possible. 

Then, top it off with the remaining bread cubes. 

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, maple syrup until everything is combined. Then pour the egg mixture over all of the bread cubes. 

Once that is done, cover the pan with aluminum foil and place the casserole into the fridge and let it chill overnight. 

In the morning, bake the french toast casserole at 350 degrees for 30 with the casserole still covered with the foil. 

After 30 minutes, remove the pan from the oven. Take off the foil and bake the casserole for another 30 minutes or until the bread is fluffy and golden. 

For the syrup topping, pour water, sugar, and the cornstarch into a saucepan and cook it over medium heat until the syrup mixture starts to thicken up. 

Once it is thick, add in fresh blueberries and let it simmer for another 10 minutes. 

Then, serve it over the creamy french toast and enjoy!

This is also very delicious with any maple syrup, but we highly recommend the homemade blueberry! It pairs perfectly with this delicious breakfast recipe. It’s also an easy homemade syrup recipe that I promise you can’t mess up.

Pecans with breakfast? Sounds like an amazing dessert!

  1. This looks amazing! I've done savory breakfast stratas for years but I've never tried a sweet version. I'm definitely trying this one!

    Hubby is a blueberry fiend and I think if I wasn't watching, he might just drink the syrup! LOL

    Newly following from What's Cooking Wednesday. Thanks for sharing!
    • I've also made this with strawberries. I've done one blueberry one strawberry and I've also done just one dish half and half so the picky people only eat the ends and then I make the middle a little overlapped of the two so you get the best of both! My family loves this dish. I make it every year for both Christmas morning and Easter morning.
  2. Hey six sisters! This has got to be one of the most amazing recipes I have seen. I am sure it is calorie free :) Would so love for you to link up and share it with us at Kids in the Kitchen: http://younglivingoillady.com/home/kids-in-the-kitchen-link-up-week-7/
  3. Could you please change the 'Syrup' recipe part to say 'Sauce'? It's very confusing since the first part of the recipe calls for regular syrup and yet there's directions to make 'Syrup' (blueberries, cornstarch, etc.) which is actually the sauce you put on top. Anyway just a suggestion since it's misleading. Thanks :-)
  4. I just made this today and it was WONDERFUL!! I used some "day old" diced french bread and just let the dish sit on the counter for 30 minutes prior to baking (to let the frozen blueberries thaw) and it turned out delicious! Everyone ate seconds and thirds!! Would definitely make this again! Thanks so much for the recipe:-)
  5. Yeah, mine was pretty slimy and soggy in the middle too. So I've just stirred it, and it's in the oven for another 25 minutes. I'll just keep tossing it and cooking it until it's cooked through. Not about to eat slimy, uncooked, egg-soaked anything lol. Next time I'll just divide it between 2 8X8 pans to solve the issue.
  6. I followed the directions mostly, but used gluten free bread. I used 10 eggs rather than 12, and used heavy whipping cream rather than both cups milk. I cooked in a 9X 13 baking dish. I thought it appeared alright and not too soft in the middle, but I cooked (covered with foil again) for an additional 15 min for good measure. However, I also didn't let soak overnight, only about 2 hours. I'm about to go check it as the buzzer is calling!!
    • Alright, note...I don't think I should have covered it with foil for the last 15 min. As I think it made the middle even more soft. I think the issue is just that I wish the middle was crispier, but it's not actually soggy, so that's notable. I think it turned out alright. I am cooking for another 15 minutes to see if it will crisp it up, after I cut the bake in slices.
  7. I have made this several times and it still takes me awhile. I was wondering if I could cook it in the crockpot? I would love not to have to try and get up before my kids on Christmas morning to let it warm up, then put in the oven, and then take the foil off. I love love this recipe!
  8. This recipe looked delishious, I read the comments and changed a few things it was perfect. I used a larger pan and the whole loaf of bread, cinnimon and sugar sprincled on both layers, prepped and left in fridge uncovered to harden the bread. I waited till morning to add the egg mixture over top, used 1/2c syrup. Only took 30 min to cook. (Uncovered) added light drissle of syrup before topping with blueberry sauce. Will make again for sure.
