My follow up to yesterday’s recipe: Blueberry French Toast Casserole from Milk Cow Kitchen by MaryJane Butters!  Oh Em GEE! This was so good.  Truth be told, it was brunch for me as sleep evaded me almost all night and I stayed in bed a little longer than I had planned.  But my oh my what a wonderful brunch it was!  So skee-daddle into your kitchen this evening and whip this up for tomorrow’s breakfast/brunch!


Blueberry French Toast Casserole

  • 3 cups day old 1″ baguette cubes (I am using gluten free sourdough)
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese (2 oz cut into 1″ cubes)
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries thawed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup maple syrup
  1. Generously butter an 8 x 8 clear glass baking dish. Or use and 9 x 13 and double the ingredients for 8 servings
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together baguette cubes, cream cheese cubes and blueberries; add to prepared baking dish
  3. In a small bowl, mix together eggs, milk and syrup.  Pour over bread mixture.  Using a spatula, press ingredients down into liquid.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate over night.
  5. Remove Casserole from refrigerator 30 minutes prior to baking.  Preheat oven to 350
  6. Remove plastic wrap, cover with aluminum foil, and bake for 35 minutes or 45 for 9 x 13.  Remove foil and bake until top is golden and mixture is set in the center, about 15 minutes or 25 for doubled recipe.
  7. Serve topped with maple cream syrup (recipe below)


Maple Cream Syrup

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup cream

In a small saucepan, combine syrup and cream.  Stir over medium heat until thickened, approximately 15 minutes.  Drizzle over French Toast Casserole.
