Overnight Blueberry French Toast Casserole

Recipe by  

"I made this for Christmas morning brunch, perfect to put in the oven and go open presents while it bakes. You can top with syrup or whipped cream or nothing at all. I found several different recipes similar to this one, but none had everything I wanted to do with it, so I thought I'd try to make my own. I think it is a very good start, but please, let me know what you think!"

This recipe looked so good and I was excited about trying it for my guests. It seemed as if the custard wasn't quite enough for the amount of bread in the casserole, and, I wish I would have gone with my instinct because it was a little dry in the morning and top of the casserole was more like a dry crunchy toast. It is possible that the size of my french loaves were larger than what the author of the recipe used, but, since it just said (2) french loaves that is what I used. I did top with a homemade blueberry sauce, so, that definitely helped with the dryness. I would make this again, but, just use less bread or more custard next time.
