  • 2 cups Florida blueberries
  • 1 white bread loaf
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 8 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut bread into 1-inch cubes. Cut cream cheese into small cubes. Lightly grease a 9-inch square baking dish. Place half of the bread cubes in the dish. Evenly place the cream cheese cubes and 1 cup of the blueberries over the bread. Add the remaining bread cubes and blueberries to the top of the casserole. In a medium-sized bowl, combine eggs, milk, maple syrup and butter. Slowly pour egg mixture over bread. Cover casserole with foil and bake for approximately 45 minutes. Remove from oven and insert a toothpick in the center of the casserole. When it comes out clean, remove the foil. Bake for approximately 10 more minutes or until top appears golden brown. Let cool slightly and serve warm with extra maple syrup on the side.
