Blueberry Stuffed French Toast

We had a wee brunch at our house the other day. I didn't have the time or energy to put on my usual insane spread. So I opted for some simple easy to prepare in advance dishes, like Blueberry Stuffed French Toast, a recipe I received in a gift basket of blueberry foodstuffs from the Stonewall Kitchen. The independent panel of taste testers who were my brunch guests gave this dish high praise. Thanks, Mom & Ed!
Blueberry Stuffed French Toast adapted from The Stonewall Kitchen

  • 1 loaf French bread cut into 1" cubes (approximately 5 cups)
  • 8 oz. (1 package) cream cheese, cut into 1" cubes
  • 1/2 C fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 C Stonewall Kitchen Wild Maine Blueberry Jam
  • 6 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/3 C maple syrup
  • 1 C milk

1. Grease a deep-dish pie pan (I used a Pyrex casserole dish). Place half the French bread cubes in the bottom of the prepared dish.

2. Equally distribute the cream cheese cubes, fresh blueberries, and Wild Maine Blueberry Jam over the top of the bread cubes. Top with the remaining bread cubes.

3. In a medium size bowl combine the eggs, maple syrup, and milk. Whisk until uniform. Pour over bread mixture. Place in refrigerator several hours or preferably overnight.

4. Preheat oven to 350. Bake covered with foil for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake approximately 15-30 minutes more, or until the casserole is set and the top is golden. Serve the casserole hot with more maple syrup.

We got the same gift basket, but I failed to discover that recipe. Luckily we still have jam left, so I'm definitely going to make that!

By the way, if you still have mix left, we found it to be superior for waffles (instead of pancakes).

We haven't got a waffle iron, but I could TOTALLY see that pancake mix making excellent waffles. David would like to move next door to you so we can more easily borrow your waffle iron, or just come over and eat your waffles. :)

If you move next door, you are welcome to come over for waffles anytime.
