The weekend is all about yummy breakfasts for my family and it doesn’t get any easier than this. I love that I can prepare this breakfast the night before and put it in the oven in the morning for a hot, delicious breakfast. The homemade blueberry syrup that goes on top makes it even better.
My family and I love to use the weekends to be lazy and enjoy each other when we can. So this breakfast casserole is a family favorite recipe. I can whip this up the night before and then put it in the fridge to bake off in the morning.
Plus on the weekends you don’t always want to have to wake up early and make a super delicious meal for breakfast and you wont need to with this easy breakfast recipe.
We found this recipe on Allrecipes.com and fell in love with how simple and amazing it is for a perfect overnight breakfast recipe.
MAKE SURE YOUR KITCHEN IS ALSO EQUIPT WITH THESE ITEMS FOR THIS FRENCH TOAST CASSEROLE:
- 9×13 inch baking pan (I love that THIS one comes with a lid perfect for overnight recipes like this)
- Nonstick cooking spray
- Large mixing bowl
- Aluminum foil
- Heat resistant rubber spatula (like THIS one)
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.
